Italian Language Courses for ERASMUS+ students in Italy 2018/2019


During 15 years, the University for Foreigners of Siena was one of the organiser of EILC (Erasmus Intensive Language Courses) in Italy. Starting from 2014/2015 academic year, the new ERASMUS+ Programme has cancelled the EILC courses, which have been replaced by OLS (Online Linguistic Support). 

In order to keep on our longstanding experience and give to perspective Erasmus students in Italy the opportunity to improve their Italian language skills, we organise for the third year the EPLUS intensive Italian language courses ONLY for 2019/2020 Erasmus+ students in Italy (either for study or traineeship), for 2, 3 or 4 weeks, during summer 2019 and winter 2020. 


IMPORTANT: These courses are NOT for students who will spend their Erasmus for study period at Università per Stranieri di Siena (I SIENA02), because they have the chance to attend up to 3 months of Italian language courses for free.
