Other foreign languages: tests and courses

Some degree courses include a further language assessment - basic or advanced level - among the following languages:

  • Anglo-American/advanced English
  • French
  • Spanish
  • German

Further information regarding the characteristics of the different entry-level tests and the corresponding credits can be found in the dedicated degree course box below.

Important notice: Students must pay attention to the foreign language they choose because it is not possible to switch and choose a different one once the entry-level test has been taken.

For a.y. 2021-2022, tests are being held in-person and, therefore, open to students holding the Covid-19 certificate, i.e. green pass. The green pass is issued also to unvaccinated individuals with a negative molecular (or rapid antigen) test result in the last 48 hours, or those who have recovered from Covid19.

Wearing a mask is compulsory inside closed spaces, unless in a situation of complete isolation, to safeguard one's health and respect other people.

Exceptions to the in-person test requirement will be granted only for the following reasons:

a) Covid-19 positive or quarantined students

b) Students with underlying health concerns, as laid down by law

c) Students residing in countries with health restrictions or cross-border travel restrictions

Should one of these cases apply to your situation, contact us through Informastudenti, 'language test' category and attach the self-certification available at this link: https://www.unimi.it/en/study/bachelor-and-master-study/following-your-programme-study/teaching-activities-campus together with your identification document. Then wait for our reply to be summoned to sit the test remotely.
