Italian language test

Candidates coming from extraEU countries and wishing to enroll on bachelor's/master's/combined bachelor's and master's degrees taught in italian should prove knowledge of the Italian language: a certificate of level B2 or higher issued as part of the CLIQ quality system is required.
In the event that this certificate has not been obtained, the candidate must successfully undertake an italian language test, which is held every year at our University between August and September: who fail the test will not be allowed to enroll.

If the courses of the degree programme choosen by candidates are entirely taught in English, the University of Brescia exempts international students from taking the Italian language test.



Detailed information on exemptions from the test may be found in the Regulations for admission of foreign students to University programmes - Chapter III (link Study in Italy in the column on the right). Among exemptions the following are included:

  • secondary school diploma (four or five years) obtained in an italian school abroad
  • Diploma of italian language and culture issued by the University for Foreigners of Perugia or Siena
  • secondary school diploma issued by a public "scuola di frontiera" offering courses taught in italian
  • secondary school diploma obtained in the San Marino Republic

The italian language test for the academic year 2018/19 was held on 31 August 2018.
