The Foundation Year is a preparatory course, taught in Italian designed for:
– students who do not meet the minimum 12 years of schooling required for enrollment in an Italian University Degree course;
– students who want to access undergraduate degrees at the University of Pavia;
– students interested in learning Italian or improving their Italian language skills.

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

For the academic year 2023-2024, students will attend all courses, both Italian and Area Studies courses in person in Pavia from October 2023 until June 2024.
