To be able to sit the English language exam included in the study plan, students must have level B1 proficiency in English.
Proficiency may be certified at the time of matriculation by submitting a certificate of level B1 language proficiency or better, or by sitting the SLAM (University Language Centre) Placement test during the first year of studies only, between September and December.
Students who do not pass the test must follow the SLAM language courses and obtain appropriate certification within the year the plan of study calls for a language exam.
Students with in-depth knowledge of foreign languages who wish to complete part of their university studies abroad may complete periods of study in various foreign universities, thereby obtaining an academic qualification from both their home university and the foreign one (Double Degree).
In particular, the degree course in Communication and Society has entered into an agreement with the American university John Cabot University in Rome which allows the acquisition of both the Italian degree and the Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Communication, valid internationally.
Students participating in this program will be selected according to the modalities indicated in the annual announcement.
