University of Padua Language Center (CLA)

The University of Padua offers many opportunities to gain working knowledge of a foreign language or to build on existing skills.

The CLA - Centro Linguistico di Ateneo, provides language courses (English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese) for regular students, Erasmus students, professors and administrative staff. Thanks to the multimedia- laboratory facilities, both budding and experienced linguistics can follow traditional lessons or choose from a host of self-taught courses.

In order to apply for the University of Padua under the "Erasmus + for Studies Programme", students must provide certificates to prove their language competences in Italian and/or English as follows:

A2 Italian level for students attending course units in Italian
B1 English level for students attending course units in English

Different programmes may apply specific conditions. It is therefore highly recommended that exchange students address the respective contact person for each specific programme they are interested in.
