Learn more about the English language training development project We want to ensure that all of our students, once they graduate, can seek employment internationally, can decide where to apply their skills and be free to communicate, write and speak to as many people in the world as possible. Applying at a company in California, going to teach Latin in Sweden as well as attracting foreign investors or tourists to Genoa should be goals within the reach of every UniGe graduate. In an increasingly connected world, knowing at least one other language should be considered an essential skill, whatever the field of study. UniGe has decided to invest in the language training of its students and not to leave it up to the will and ability of individuals to fill any gap; this is a major organizational and training effort, coordinated by the Language Skills Development Sector, which we believe will see very concrete results in the job placement of the next few years, when it will become clear to everyone that being a UniGe graduate, will also be a guarantee of knowing English. From academic year 2019/2020 UniGe organizes an experimental project with the aim of adjusting the knowledge of all freshmen to the B1 level of English language in the shortest possible time and thus making the goals of B2 level at the end of the bachelor's degree and C1 level at the end of the master's degree achievable for all students. In the first year there is a Assessment test for those who do not present B2 level certification or higher, with tests between September and November; for those who do not reach the level there are online and possibly in-person courses, to be taken and passed within the first year of their career. In the years following the first one, an offering of B2 English courses first and C1 later (in master's degrees) will follow.
