Instructions for Marco Polo Project Chinese Students
The Marco Polo project consists in a governmental agreement, between Italy and China, with the purpose of supporting the presence of Chinese students in Italian universities.
Students who participate in this project will have a chance to arrive earlier than other international students in Italy in order to learn Italian for 10 or 11 months (level of Italian required B2).
The end of the course after passing the final test and the admission test provided for the admission to the chosen programme, students will be able to enroll following the procedures reported in the public call of the specific programme.
– the Tor Vergata University of Rome as your chosen University;
– the University programme you are interested in and the place where you will attend the course of Italian language and culture;
– the Embassy/Consulate where you need to apply for the Visa.
The pre-enrollment application will be verified by Tor Vergata University of Rome and forwarded to the Embassy or Consulate you have declared in your application.
:: VERY IMPORTANT NOTE ::
it will be in any case mandatory to go the Embassy/Consulate in order to finalise the pre-enrollment procedure and obtain the Study Visa. We strongly recommend to bring to your Embassy/Consulate all your documents long in advance.
Note that the pre-enrollment does not guarantee the admission to the programmes. In order to enroll you need to sit for and pass the requirements verification and/or the admission tests provided for the programme you are interested in.
After the pre-enrollment, if an Italian language course is required for these Chinese students, is it recommended that the Italian language course duration is not inferior to 10 months (preferably 80/100 monthly hours) in order to guarantee a consistent and continuous exposure to the Italian language to obtain a B1 starting level with the aim of a progressive language skills improvement in the following years.
Tor Vergata University of Rome, as part of the Marco Polo Project, provides an 11-month Italian language and culture course for a total of 1.000 hours.
