International opportunities for students

The University Language Centre (CLA) provides languages courses in several languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and Chinese) and at different levels.

The courses are held by qualified, native speaker teachers. The language courses take place at the Language Centre (CLA) in Via Verdi 8 in Trento, and in the different University Departments throughout the academic year. Some courses aim at developing general language skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening), while others are more specific.

Language courses are free for foreign students in the frame of international mobility programmes if foreseen by their study plan. Italian language courses are equivalent to 3 ECTS. You can find the courses list in the left menu of this page.
