Foreign students are advised to learn Italian, since almost all courses are offered in Italian and exams will be taken in Italian as well.
Please remember that not only the success of your studies, but also the enjoyment of your time in Turin will be very dependent upon your ability to speak Italian.
CLA (Language Centre) at Politecnico di Torino offers all International students Italian language courses. Intensive courses will only be held in September and January/February . During the academic year, there are no language courses at the same time as the lectures.
The two Italian universities for foreigners are State institutions specialised in teaching and research for the development and diffusion of the Italian language, literature and culture. They both offer courses in Italian Language and Culture all year long.
For an updated list of Italian language courses held outside Politecnico, please ask to the Foreign Citizens Services Unit.
