Benefits of taking Cambridge Exams for Students in Italy

Article taken from the Cambridge English website:
Students studying on English-medium degree courses at two Italian universities are now entitled to a full or partial exemption from English tests set by their university – if they have passed a Cambridge English exam.

A range of Cambridge English tests, developed by Cambridge English Language Assessment, are now officially accepted on courses in the Economics faculty and Human Sciences department at Università degli Studi di Palermo and the law department of Seconda Università di Napoli "Università Federico II".

“Italy is a really popular choice for international students and we’re seeing more English medium courses become available which is really encouraging,” commented Nicola Johnson from Cambridge English Language Assessment. “Universities around the world are turning to external assessments to measure language ability to help them ensure students have the English language skills they need for success in university life. The Cambridge English exams takes this one step further by assessing the real-life communication skills students need in the classroom and socially.”

The full details of the exemptions are:

University of Palermo dept of Humanistic Sciences: recognition for Cambridge English: Preliminary (undergraduate), Cambridge English: First (undergraduate), Cambridge English: Advanced (postgraduate) allowing students to have a partial exemption from the English exam; Università di Palermo - Facoltà di Economia: recognised Cambridge English: Key and Cambridge English: Preliminary. Students with these certificates are exempt from taking the English exam, from taking the English course and are awarded six credits.

Seconda Università di Napoli - Faculty of Law: recognised Cambridge English: Preliminary. Students with Cambridge English: Preliminary have full exemption from taking the General English exam.
Students should contact the universities directly to find out more information about the new exemptions.
