Courses in Italian Language for foreign students

In the 1st semester of the A.Y. 2023-24, all foreign students already enrolled in Tor Vergata University can take an Italian language course for free by enrolling in the online self-learning Italian language courses provided by the ICoN (Italian Culture on the Net) Consortium. The ICoN Consortium – of which the University of Tor Vergata has been a member since its foundation – is a consortium of Italian universities that aims to promote and spread the Italian language and culture in the world through e-learning and new technologies.

At the end of the ICoN Courses, students who complete 100% of the activities on the platform will be issued a certificate of completion by ICoN indicating the level and number of hours of self-study. ICoN courses do not include a final exam or automatic acquisition of credits. It will be the responsibility of each student’s Home University or Course Coordinator/Director to decide whether to award credits against the certificate issued by ICoN.

Students enrolled at Tor Vergata University will be able to register for ICoN courses from 5th to 25th September 2023.

A second and final time frame to register is open from 28th September 2023 to 9th October 2023.
