If you are attending a bachelor’s degree course or the master’s program in Primary Education, you will need to reach an intermediate language level in the third language (level B1 or B2) in order to register for degree course exams.
The language requirements and exam registration blocks are established by each degree course regulation and may differ within the same degree course depending on the year of matriculation.

For students of the Faculty of Economics: For information on the awarding of additional points at graduation for the achievement of specific language levels, please contact the Faculty Secretariat or consult the regulations of the courses in your degree programme.

In order to prove that you meet the language requirements of your study course, you can also upload one of the recognized language certificates to the Cockpit > Student Zone > Language Requirements.

Relevant Information and Registration

Relevant information

  • The language exams take place on the Bozen-Bolzano Campus.
  • In order to pass the language exam, we strongly recommend that you carefully read the information on the structure of the exam, so that you have an idea of the type of exercises that you will find in the exam.
  • It is not possible to register for two CEFR levels of the same language.
  • Please arrive 15 minutes before the beginning of the exam; you will not be admitted to the exam if you are over 20 minutes late.
  • Bring a valid ID (ID-card, driving license or passport, the unibz campus card is no longer accepted), otherwise you will not be admitted to the exam. 

Registration

Registration must be made during the indicated periods, otherwise it will not be possible to take the exam. 

You can register in Cockpit > Student Zone > Language Requirements, selecting the language and level of the exam you wish to take.
Once you have chosen the language and the level of the exam, you must confirm your choice by clicking on "Submit".
A second screen will open where you can select the date and time of the exam.
If your registration is successful, you will receive an automatic confirmation e-mail to the unibz e-mail address. 

The system automatically recognizes which module(s) you will need to complete.

If you have never taken the language exam or failed module I, your registration will include all three modules.

If you have already passed module I, but not module II (written) and module III (oral): the system will suggest you to register for the written exam (module II) and you will have to register in person for the oral exam (module III), once you have completed module II.

If you have to pass only module II (written) or only module III (oral): the system will offer you registration for the missing module.

Depending on your year of enrolment and the requirements you have to meet in the second language, the system will offer you registration for the supplementary oral exams B2+ or C1.

Students with disabilities and/or specific learning disorders

Whenever you need to apply for compensatory and/or exemptive measures (link a pagina guida studiare senza barriere) during the language exams, you should inform the Advisory Service of your participation via e-mail (study@unibz.it) at least 15 days before the examination date.
The Advisory Service will then contact the Language Centre and confirm that the requested measures have been implemented.
If your request is not made in time, the measures to which you could be eligible will not be applied.
