Verification and fulfillment of OFA (Additional Learning Requirements)

To access the degree programme, a basic understanding of Italian language and an understanding of English at level B1, at least, is required.

The admission test acts as validation for basic understanding of Italian language. In case of failure, or if you achieve a mark lower than 10 as a sum of the marks obtained from the 30 Italian language questions, you will be assigned an OFA to carry out by September 2021.

Regarding knowledge of English language, students whom have achieved one of the certificates verified by the university are excluded from the obligation to verify their understanding of English. The list of linguistic certificates, cases of exemption for verification and the process of verification are described in the specific web page. On the contrary, they will be assigned an OFA to carry out by 30th September 2021. After this data, in such case that the OFA is not carried out, it will not be possible for that candidate to sit the examinations.

Students that have enrolled in a subsequent year to their first, such as in cases of transfer, internal paths or matriculation with credit recognition, should have fulfilled the OFA by the time they are enrolled: they cannot take exams until they have fulfilled them.
