The Foundation Year is a preparatory course, taught in Italian designed for:

The course includes both Italian language classes and preparatory courses from one of the following study areas: (1) Humanities; (2) Science and Medicine; (3) Economics, Law and Politics.

For the academic year 2022-2023, students will attend all courses, both Italian and Area Studies courses in person in Pavia from October 2022 until June 2023.

Students who pass the Foundation year final exams will:

  • meet the minimum entry requirements for undergraduate study and be exempted from the first year of University fee at the University of Pavia.
