All courses are taught in Italian.
For non-Italian native speakers, it is highly recommended to hold a B1 level certificate in Italian language (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) for bachelor's students, and a B2 level certificate for master's students.
For non-EU students residing outside Italy this is a mandatory requirement.

Any applicants who do not yet have any Italian language certificates at the time of enrolment can take a placement test at Rovigo Conservatory in order to ascertain their skills.
Language tutoring is guaranteed during the academic year.
Rovigo Conservatory offers to all international degree students intensive Italian language courses, in cooperation with the Dante Alighieri Society.
Italian language courses are mandatory for non-Italian native speakers who cannot demonstrate language proficiency at B1 level for Bachelor's courses, and B2 level for Master's.
The Dante Alighieri Society also organises PILDA preparation courses.
PLIDA (Dante Alighieri Italian Language Project) is an exam that certifies the level of Italian as a foreign language, according to the six levels laid out by the Council of Europe on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (from level A1 for the most basic beginner to C2 for the very highest level of ability).
This exam is recognized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and it is valid all over the world.
