Any activity (lectures, seminars, exams, laboratories, thesis) of the InterMaths programme (for both first and second year) will be conducted in English. To this purpose all enrolled students are required to prove an adequate (upper-intermediate, B2, IELTS 5-6.5, TOEFL iBT 87-109) level of both spoken and written English.
If you are an international student, every semester (except for the fourth one) you'll be required to attend (and earn the related ECTS credits of) a course of the language and culture spoken in the country where you'll be spending such study period. Upon successfully completing each language course, students will be awarded 3 ECTS credits, which will be recorded as extra credits in the student's curriculum.
That is to say that all international students will have to attend:
- a beginner's (A1) course of Italian language during the first semester
- an elementary (A2) course of Italian language during the second semester
When moving to one of our partners for their second year, you'll also have to achieve a beginner's (A1) level in the local language spoken there by the end of the third semester. So, for instance, if you're going to spend your second year in Katowice, you'll have to attend:
- a beginner's (A1) course of Polish language during the third semester.
This doesn't obviously apply to local students enrolled in their own university of origin.
