English Proficiency

If the program you’ve been admitted to is conducted in Italian, there’s no need for proficiency in English. For programs taught in English, however, fluency in the language is essential (English proficiency minimum level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages – CEFR).

Citizens of the following countries are exempt from submitting the English language certification: Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, the British overseas territories, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Ireland, Jamaica, Malta, New Zealand, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, the UK, and the USA.

Additionally, candidates, regardless of their nationality, who have obtained their entry-level qualification for enrollment through an English-taught program in any of the aforementioned countries, plus Canada, are also exempt from submitting the language certification.

All other applicants must submit a B2 level or higher English language certification from the list approved by our University.

The list of accepted certifications can be found at this link.

Further specific language requirements for each degree program can be found at apply.unisi.it.
