The undergraduate programme in Language Mediation and Intercultural Communication (applied to economics, law and society) aims to train language mediators who possess solid language skills - combined with a sound knowledge of cultural studies and of the principles of economics, law, and sociology - and who are therefore capable of providing inter-linguistic services in a variety of contexts, ranging from public and private institutions, to schools and vocational training centres, to companies and other organizations in which language mediation and intercultural communication are of paramount importance.
Graduates from the degree programme in Language Mediation and Intercultural Communication (applied to economics, law and society) will find career opportunities in all areas involving international relations, both at the interpersonal level and in corporate contexts (foreign relations, import/export departments, employment in the foreign offices of Italian companies, or in the offices of foreign companies in Italy), public services, and tourism and related sectors of the hospitality industry. Further opportunities are available in document search activities - both at national and at international level -, drafting memos, reports, minutes and other types of correspondence in a foreign language as well as Italian. The publishing sector also offers career prospects, ranging from the translation of semi-specialised texts in the domains of economics, law, sociology and cultural studies, to tourism, art publishing and journalism in general. Careers prospects exist wherever language mediation and intercultural communication activities occur in both the corporate sphere and public institutions. Additional employment opportunities are provided by partnership initiatives within the framework of international bodies and organisations, and by involvement in national and/or international projects (both at a European and at a supra-European level) requiring solid linguistic and cultural skills alongside a firm grasp of the principles of economics, sociology or law.
Employment statistics (Almalaurea)

In order to be admitted to the degree programme in Language Mediation and Intercultural Communication, you must have a secondary-school diploma or equivalent qualification obtained abroad, and adequate knowledge. 

Students with an Italian qualification should demonstrate cultural and linguistic skills as normally achieved in secondary schools focussing on the humanities (especially but not exclusively with respect to language curricula) and socioeconomic studies. 

To successfully attend the programme, you should have a sound knowledge of the Italian language and culture. Moreover, you should have learnt a foreign language in high school (which does not necessarily have to be chosen as the curricular language). Adequate knowledge of Italian literature and culture is also required, as well as basic cultural skills for languages and civilisations commonly taught in high schools that the student intends to pursue. 

Non-Italian mother tongue students holding a foreign qualification must have at least a B1-level Italian language proficiency, according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL), as well as a basic knowledge of Italian culture.

Skills assessment

All students must sit for a general, non-selective assessment test before enrolment. The test is mandatory but does not affect access to the programme. For further information, see the “Test Guidelines” section below.

Additional learning requirements (OFA)

Should you fail the test, you can still enrol. However, students who fall short of the thresholds set forth in the call for applications will have to fulfil additional learning requirements by means of specific remedial activities. These requirements (OFA) must be met within the first year of the programme. Should you fail remedial assessments, your academic career will be halted at the end of year I (you will not be able to take any exams after 28 February 2022).
Students who achieved an overall score lower than 25/50 in the first three sections and scored less than 15/30 in the "Written comprehension" section will be assigned additional learning requirements (OFA).
More details will be made available in the call for application on the page https://www.unimi.it/it/studiare/frequendente-un-corso-di-laurea/subscribe/iscriversi-una-prima-laurea
 
Test guidelines

There are two separate tests for different types of students:

- Test A (TOLC-SU):
- for students with an Italian qualification (including candidates who are not Italian citizens or Italian mother tongue);
- for non-Italian mother tongue students with a foreign qualification, whether EU or non-EU residents, who intend to enrol in the AIM and ALI curricula (NOT in the Stranimedia curriculum)
These categories of students will have to take the TOLC-SU test (delivered by the CISIA Consortium), which focuses on general knowledge (with reference to the skills commonly learnt in high school), Italian vocabulary and morphosyntactic structures, written comprehension, and logical reasoning. For test structure details, contents and assessment criteria, please refer to the call for applications.

-Test B (created by the University of Milan and delivered on a single session):
-for non-Italian mother tongue students holding a foreign qualification who intend to enrol in the Stranimedia curriculum for foreign mediators with an L2 Italian proficiency.
The test will focus on basic skills related to Italian language and culture. The language test level is CEFRL B1; for structure details, contents and assessment criteria, please refer to the call for applications, which will also contain a
reference bibliography for the cultural competences required.

Note: Students who are not Italian mother tongue or citizens but have obtained an Italian qualification CANNOT access the Stranimedia curriculum. A foreign qualification is essential to access this curriculum.

Non-Italian mother tongue students with foreign qualifications who are Italian citizens have access to all curricula, but will have to take the admission test for the chosen curriculum. Test A is required to enrol in the AIM and ALI curricula, test B to enrol in the Stranimedia curriculum. It will not be possible to switch curriculum later.

In addition to sitting for the general knowledge test, those wishing to choose English as their curricular language must satisfy a CEFRL B1 proficiency requirement. Below this threshold they will not be able to choose English as their curricular language. Students below the threshold may enrol in the degree programme provided they choose two curricular languages other than English.

The English language test will take place at the same time as the general skills test.

For information on assessment tests and enrolment, please refer to the call for applications and the study programme website (https://mediazione.cdl.unimi.it/it/iscriversi).

Test dates

Students with an Italian qualification (including candidates who are not Italian mother tongue or citizens) and students with a foreign qualification who are not Italian mother tongue, whether EU or non-EU residents, and who intend to enrol in the AIM and ALI curricula, will have to take the TOLC-SU (CISIA Consortium) test on one of the dates set by the Consortium (within the terms that will be published in the call for applications). For admission to the programme with English as a curricular language, the score in the English section of the TOLC-SU test will be binding. The thresholds for any additional learning requirements (OFA) and for admission to the programme with English as a curricular language will be announced in the call for applications.

Non-Italian mother tongue students holding a foreign qualification who intend to enrol in the Stranimedia curriculum must sit for test B on 9 September 2020. The test will be held remotely as set forth in the call for applications, subject to any updates to be posted on the programme website.

Within the framework of the Erasmus programme, 58 exchange agreements are in place, covering 19 countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Malta, Norway, the Netherlands, Portugal, Poland, Rumania, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, plus Switzerland, which participates in the Erasmus + programme as a partner country. Additionally, Erasmus traineeship agreements have also been signed with companies and institutions in some of the above-mentioned countries.

Additionally, a number of exchange agreements are in place with partner universities in non-European countries. Under these agreements, students have the opportunity to attend classes and take exams at partner institutions. Such activities and exam results may be validated in full or in part, with the corresponding credits concurring to fulfil the requirements for the attainment of the degree. Courses are typically offered in the areas of languages and the humanities, and are available in the following partner institutions:

- ARGENTINA: Villa María (Córdoba)
- CHINA: Liaoning Normal University
- COLOMBIA: Pontificia Universidad Javeriana (Bogotá)
- CUBA: Universidad de la Habana
- JAPAN: Doshisha University (Kyoto), Meiji University (Tokyo), Waseda University (Tokyo), Kyoto University
- INDIA: Manipal (Karnataka)
- MEXICO: Universidad de Guadalajara, Claustro de Sor Juana (Città del Messico)
- RUSSIAN FEDERATION: Pushkin Institute (Mosca), Russian State University for the Humanities (Mosca), Linguistics University of Nizhny Novgorod, Moscow City Pedagogical University (Mosca), Novosibirsk Pedagogical State University, High School of Economics (Mosca)

Besides the Erasmus exchange agreements, the Course also has one double degree program in place whereby participating students earn degrees from both institutions:

- The double degree program with AMU - Aix Marseille Université, awards students a degree in Language Mediation and Intercultural Communication issued from UNIMI and a degree in Langues étrangères appliquées - LEA, issued by AMU. Participating UNIMI students spend the third year of their course at AMU Aix-Marseille Université. For further information please contact Prof. Giovanni Turchetta (giovanni.turchetta@unimi.it)
