Outline of the curriculum
The Italian University System is based on a scale ranging from 0 to 30, with 18 as a pass mark. A cum laude may be added to the highest grade (30 e lode), as a mention of special distinction (the grade system).
Italian A2 courses and exams
All non-Italian students have to take an A2 language exam. Courses are offered by the Trento University Language Centre where you can also take the exam. All courses are free of charge.
Alternatively, several international certificates are recognised by Trento University. These are listed at the last link below. These certificates are offered by Italian Cultural Centres in many European cities (Prague, Edinburgh etc) but are not free of charge and are not always held regularly.
