Italian placement test

The Italian placement test takes place at the start of each semester and gives access to the Italian language "regular" courses (levels A1, A2, B1, B2/C1). On the basis of their test results, students are admitted and placed into the most suitable group. To be admitted to the regular courses, students must show they can use the language productively at least at an A1 level.
