However, if you demonstrate higher-level Italian language proficiency (minimum B2 level for Italian in the European Common Framework), you may enroll in select Italian-taught courses.

Students who wish to gain some familiarity with Italian language or improve their proficiency may register for a pre-semester “crash” course in Italian (offered at various levels, beginner to advanced) for an additional fee, payable to Bocconi University.

Local Language Courses: Each semester the International Student Desk organizes Italian language courses for exchange students to help them with the Italian language.

Italian Crash Course: a two week full immersion intensive course held before the start of Bocconi courses. In addition, a Follow-up Course, which will continue throughout the semester is also available. The Italian Crash Course and the Follow-Up Course are optional, extra-curricular courses, and therefore will not be included in exchange students' study plans or official transcripts. Furthermore, credits will not be issued. For full details about the Italian Language Courses, workload, available levels and registration procedures, please click here

Their contacts are available here.

In order to facilitate integration of exchange students onto their campus, the International Student Desk organizes a comprehensive Orientation Program. This includes: a mandatory on-site Orientation Meeting, which provides information on relocation, Bocconi and International Student Desk regulations, services and activities as well as the main semester dates; Permit of Stay Sessions, which will help Non-EU students carry out the Permit of Stay application; and a Cross Culture Session, which helps students get familiar with Milan habits and Italian culture

Paris, France

Founded in 1257 by the theologian and chaplain of Saint Louis, Robert de Sorbon, the Collège de la Sorbonne became the center of theological studies. The Sorbonne was closed in 1790, and its buildings became part of the University of Paris in 1808. During the 19th and 20th centuries, the University of Paris expanded both academically (beyond the study of theology) and physically (beyond its original location in the Latin Quarter). In 1968, the University of Paris was divided into three independent entities located in and around Paris.

Since that division, the system has grown to include 13 different universities, and the Sorbonne has become a complex of buildings serving the needs of these universities.

During the academic year NYU Paris has a formal student exchange arrangement between NYU Paris and the University of Paris VII (Denis Diderot). The arrangement permits NYU in Paris students to obtain university student cards and to have a large choice of courses. Students may also take courses at other Universities (Paris I, III, X) or specialized institutions such as the Institut d'Études Politiques, and Ecole Normale Supérieur. Students enrolled in the French university system attend classes with native speakers of French. Advanced students in Program II typically take one course in the French university system and the rest of their courses at the NYU center.

Registration for French university courses takes place at the Paris center, upon your arrival in France in consultation with the NYU Paris staff. Areas of interest to NYU students and in which these universities excel include literature, history, language methodology and phonetics, cinema, political science, anthropology, and art history. Students’ work is supervised and evaluated in tutorial sessions with NYU faculty members and the Paris director.
