English Proficiency

We wish to remind you that in order to take the MSc courses, students must have an adequate knowledge of the English language , at minimum B2 level, as established by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Students can demonstrate the required knowledge level either through an approved international certification (see the list of international certifications recognized by the University of Siena), or by passing a B2 level exam at the Centro Linguistico di Ateneo (CLA).

After enrolment in Siena, students having an international certification must present it to the CLA office. The CLA is located in Piazza San Francesco 7, Siena (more details can be found in the related website).

Students without a valid English Proficiency Certification are obliged to pass the B2 exam and the University of Siena offers B2 level courses. Dates of the exams and timetables of the courses are reported in the CLA website. The timetable of the English courses is also included in the MSc courses timetable.

Students are strongly encouraged to pass the B2 exam as soon as possible, in order to be able to fruitfully take the MSc courses.
