Welcome to the Sapienza University Erasmus Programme!

Key Information for Erasmus Students


Language Requirements

As per the new Sapienza guidelines, students are no longer required to provide an official certificate attesting their Italian language level. However, we recommend that students have no less than an intermediate level of Italian to make the most of their stay and make daily life in Rome easier and more enjoyable.

Italian Language Courses

Language courses are free of charge for all students who wish to attend them. In order to enroll in Sapienza Italian language courses, incoming Erasmus students must fill out the relevant section on their application form and take a placement test upon arrival.

Students have the following options:

  • INTENSIVE COURSE (strongly suggested to students who do not have an intermediate level of Italian): Daily classes, 3 weeks;
  • REGULAR COURSE: Classes twice a week, 3 months

Academic Information

For all information on your academic calendar, syllabus, exams, etc. you need to contact the Erasmus Officer at your receiving Faculty. All didactic activity is managed at a Faculty level.

Unfortunately, Sapienza University does not provide students with accommodation. However, together with your login code for the on-line application form, you will receive (by e-mail) a username and a password to access accomodation notices provided by the Erasmus Student Network "Progetto Casa".
Furthermore, Sapienza signed some special housing agreements with companies that offer free intermediation service and with CTS, that you will pay only if you accept the housing they found for you.

Erasmus Welcome Day - February 11th, 2016

Sapienza organises an Erasmus Welcome Day for students coming in the second semester. During the Welcome Day, students receive useful information about academic  and university life at Sapienza. It's also a great opportunity to meet with our Erasmus Coordinator, Prof. Luciano Saso, Erasmus staff and members of the Erasmus Student Network (ESN).

Enrolment in Exams for Erasmus Students – Infostud Service

Summer School in Italian Language and Culture
Sapienza organises a Summer School for students to study and discover many aspects of Italian literature, arts and cinema, whilst perfecting their language skills. The Summer School includes two independent and parallel courses, taught both in English and Italian, with a final assessment test. Both courses include guided visits to the most important monuments and sites in Rome.
