Thanks to the Project Marco Polo and Turandot, Chinese students have the opportunity to enroll in an Italian Higher Education Institution (University, Academy of Fine Arts, Conservatory) on a bachelor degree (BA) or master degree courses (MA).
Chinese students are required to follow an Italian language course in Italy organised by a University or educational organisations which have a special agreement with Higher Education Institutes such as Linguaviva. If students pass the final exam of the Italian language course, they can proceed to finalise the enrollment in the chosen university, with no obligation of returning to China and consequently obtaining the renewal of the residence permit . Further students will be exempted from the compulsory Italian language test which normally is required from all international students in order to access university courses.
Italian language course
Linguaviva has partnership agreements with leading universities, Academies of Fine Arts and Conservatories, thus the Italian language course organised by Linguaviva in its centers in Florence and Milan and the final Italian language certificate is recognised as valid to access to Italian universities.
The Italian language course for Marco Polo and Turandot Chinese students is based on reference levels of the Common European Framework A1 to B2.
At the end of the course, students must pass a final exam in order to obtain a B2 language skills certification. Passing the final examination is therefore essential to be enrolled in an Italian University. If you choose a degree course with a selective entrance examination (Architecture, Design, Engineering, Economics, Medicine, Academy of Fine Arts, Conservatory) in addition to passing the Italian language test, students should also pass the specific admission tests.
