UNINT Faculty of Interpreting and Translation is one of the three Italian members of CIUTI, a prestigious international association representing the world's best university faculties for translators and interpreters, and its Master's degree programme is part of the European Master's in Translation (EMT) network after undergoing a strict admission procedure.

The language course targets anyone who is interested in learning/improving his/her Italian. The course is open to foreign students with a secondary school diploma or equivalent educational title from a foreign institution or students enrolled in a university or other higher education institution.
