First time enrolment in Italian language courses

If you are enrolling in the beginners' course

Places in ITALIAN 106 and ITALIAN 106G are strictly limited to students with no previous knowledge of the language. Before enrolling please make sure that you have carefully read the course descriptions in the course catalogue on Student Services Online and Italian.

We will assess your Language Ability Declaration and check your student record. We aim to respond to you within five working days.

  • If you are eligible we will email you to confirm. Initiate the enrolment process on Student Services Online if you have not already done so.
  • This is a waitlisted course. Your enrolment will be completed by the Arts Students’ Centre once your Language Ability Declaration has been approved.
  • If you may be eligible for a higher course we will email you to advise.
     

If you are enrolling in a course above beginners' level

If your first enrolment in a Italian language course is above the beginners’ course (ITALIAN 106 or 106G) you must sit a two-hour written test and take an oral test no later than six working days before semester starts. Your students’ centre will check that this course can be included in your programme, as well as other eligibility criteria. If all criteria are met you will be enrolled.  

It may take up to 20 working days for your enrolment to be finalised, so please start the process early.
