Students enrolling for the first time on an Italian-taught first cycle degree or one long cycle degree who gained their high school diploma abroad or in a foreign-system school in Italy, will be required to take an Italian language test.
Students who will not pass the minimum mark required by the test will have to attend an Italian language course. Such course is mandatory and completely free of charge. The course aims at improving international students’ Italian skills and proficiency, thus allowing them to attend classes satisfactorily. Only students who already successfully enrolled in our University will be offered the course.
If you are a student enrolling for the first time on an Italian-taught second cycle degree, you are exempt from the Italian language test and course: your knowledge of Italian language will be verified during the admission interview.

Starting from a.y. 2016-2017, the procedures for evaluating students with foreign titles participating in international cooperation projects and partnerships (i.e. Erasmus Mundus) change as follows:
If you already have a degree valid for admission to a first/second level study course:
- if the selection of candidates is carried out by the foreign University coordinating the project, i.e. in the frame of Erasmus Mundus programme, your admission requirements will be checked only by the coordinator and you will not have to hand in the documents usually required for foreign students (i.e. Declaration of equal value, original qualification/degree with certified translation into Italian and legalization, etc.).
- if the selection for the admission to the international programme is carried out by the University of Turin as Project coordinator, entry requirements will be checked by the Foreign Students office according to the usual regulation and procedures and you will have to hand in all the necessary documents.
If you are enrolled in a long-cycle degree (in university programs that do not have 3 + 2 cycle, i.e. Grandes Écoles or similar) and you still do not have the final title:
- only in the frame of a specific international cooperation project, you will be able to enroll in a second cycle degree, if you have completed at least 15 years of education, including 3 years at university level with 180 ECTS credits. The 3 years at university level should not include the first year of the specific cooperation program.
If you fulfill these requirements:
- if the selection is carried out by the foreign University coordinating the project, your admission requirements will be checked only by the coordinator and you will not have to hand in the documents usually required to foreign students;
- if the selection for the admission to the international programme is carried out by the University of Turin as Project coordinator, your eligibility must be checked and certified by our Institution. Please contact the coordinator of the international programme for further details.
Following latest "Procedures for the access of foreign students applying for a study-visa to high education of 2016-2017" (Attachment 1), starting from a.y. 2017-18 enrolments, students holding a foreign high school diploma will be admissible to first cycle degree programmes only if their diploma was gained after at least two years of attendance in the foreign system and if such system involves at least 12 years of global education.
