Why study a foundation programme?
The foundation course offers you a direct route into studying at a world-class university.
It is a preparatory course taught in both Italian and english aimed at prospective students who want to apply for undergraduate degrees at the University of Pisa.
If you do not meet the entry criteria for your chosen undergraduate course, the foundation course may offer you an alternative entry route.
All of our undergraduate courses can be accessed via the foundation course, and international students will also have the chance to improve their Italian language skills.
Students who pass the Foundation Course will be exempted from the Italian Proficiency University admission test of the University of Pisa
A foundation course is the first step on the way to successfully obtaining your degree!
