Basic knowledge of a second Romance language or Latin must be demonstrated by the time of registration for the examination.

- "Basic knowledge" corresponds to level A2 of the CEFR:

- Such a certificate can be obtained for a fee at the university's internal language center or at other language schools (e.g. DELF, DELE).

- A free option is offered by the Italicum (see link below).

- Native speakers also need a certificate. It is possible to take the placement test to check your knowledge of Spanish or French, but this only takes place at the beginning of the winter semester.

- It is not possible for the institute to cover the costs of courses at the Language Center.
