Students can take the TAL during regular exam sessions and also on other dates during the year. Information about the TAL test can be found on the website of the Language Centre:

If students already have a valid international certificate at B1 level or above, they need not take the TAL or oral tests (see Moodle- sezione ‘Informazioni Lingua Inglese Triennale’ for a list of recognised certificates)


** students can choose to complete all the TAL test, that is, the written and oral sections. Please contact your docente.
