Additional Languages

wordcloud thank you (3)

An additional language is any language not included in the permanent EUI language offer. The Language Centre oversees a few additional language courses every year.

Additional courses can be organised by the Language Centre when required.

EUI members can also consider following courses in additional languages at the University of Florence Centro Linguistico Ateneo (CLA).


Additional language courses at the University of Florence, Centro Linguistico Ateneo (CLA)

As an EUI member you can follow additional language courses at the University of Florence.

EUI members pay 'facilitated fees'.

You can find further information on the languages available and costs at the Centro Linguistico Ateneo.

For any further information, contact the Language Centre Assistant.


Procedure for enrolling in an EUI course in an additional language

  1. Before each new term (mid-September, mid-November, mid-March) the Language Centre will send an email asking if you are interested in learning an additional language.
    If at least 5 people express interest within 5 days, a course will be organised.

  2. The Language Centre Assistant will put interested learners in contact with possible teachers. 
    Where possible, the Language Centre will try to find a teacher from within the EUI community.

  3. Please note that it is not always possible to find a teacher for every language requested. 

  4. Once the course has been set up, the Language Centre will advertise it. If new participants join, the costs will be lowered correspondingly.  


Cost of an EUI course in an additional language 

  • Participants must pay for additional language courses. Once the Language Centre has a list of participants, it will send you an email informing you of the fee and length of course. 

  • Your department or unit may cover your course fees. For more information, apply directly to them.

  • The greater the number of participants, the lower the cost per person. 

    If new participants enrol in the course, the costs will be lowered.

  • If your fees are not covered by your department or unit, you must pay before the course starts.
