Important information - Erasmus and international mobility at the Department of Law

1. Introduction to EU Law and Intensive Italian Language Course
For those of you who intend to take the intensive course of Introduction to EU Law, classes begin on February 12, 2018; the course runs until March 5.
Those of you who are interested in the Italian Language Course should note that an intensive course for beginners has been organised at the Department of Law, also beginning on February 12, 3-6 pm. This course is free of charge and will award 6 ECTS if your final exam is approved.
Other language courses are organised by the University Language Centre along the semester, but there is an enrollment fee and, more importantly, they often overlap with the schedule of classes at the Department of Law. Those of you who  arrive in Ferrara by next week and are interested in learning Italian are strongly advised to take up this course.
Should you be interested in the intensive language course, we would be grateful if you could kindly inform us by answering to this email as soon as possible.
