2020 CILS exam sessions.

The CILS (Certificate of Italian as a Foreign Language) is an official examination provided by the Foreigners University of Siena and it certifies the degree of linguistic-communicative knowledge in Italian as L2. It is official in the sense that it is recognized by the Ministry of University and Research and it is necessary to work in any institution that requires an official certificate of knowledge of Italian. The CILS A2-“Module for integration in Italy” certification is necessary for foreigners to obtain the long residency permit. The CILS DUE-B2 certification exonerates non-european students to take the Italian examination in Italian universities.

The CILS course is an intensive course of 4 hours per day, from monday to friday, for a minimum of 2 weeks.
