If you have a foreign high school diploma, you will have to take a Italian language proficiency test. If you fail the test, you will have to take a remedial Italian language course at the School of Italian Language and Culture for Foreign Students.
You will also have to take, like all other students, the initial knowledge test.
Verification of the initial preparation of this course is through TE.L.E.MA.CO, a TEst of Logic AND MAthematic and Verbal COmprehension.
TE.L.E.MA.CO is a self-assessment test that allows you to gain awareness of your level of preparedness, and the areas that need improvement, in order to successfully tackle your first year of study.
The test assesses some basic and some more advanced skills, depending on the course of study.
The verification is mandatory and can be taken on three dates, in September, October and November.
You can confirm enrollment, attend classes and take in-progress tests even if you have not passed or have not yet taken the verification.
If you do not pass the verification (or if you do not attend any of its three editions) you will be given Additional Educational Obligations (OFA) which you can fulfill by December through a self-training online course and by passing a verification (TE.S.E.O.) for which there are 3 editions.
If you have not yet made up the OFAs by the end of December, you will have to take some first-year exams as a priority and, until you have passed at least 12 CFUs of those exams, you will be prevented from taking the other exams.
If, at the beginning of the second year, you have not yet made up your OFAs, you will be able to register for the second time, but as a repeater, and will not be able to plan to take teachings from years beyond the first.
