Many Master's degree courses are taught entirely in English. Thus Candidates are expected to have a sound knowledge of this language and will need to present an official certificate of proficiency. Whilst it is an important requisite to be fluent in English, candidates do not need to know or learn Italian in order to successfully participate in the programmes.
