Marco Polo and Turandot

The Marco Polo and Turandot Projects

The Marco Polo and Turandot Projects allows Chinese students who do not speak Italian to obtain an Italian entry visa to enrol at an Italian university, provided they first attend an Italian language course for 10 or 11 months.
The students attaining a level B1 certification or higher at the end of such a course will possess the language requirement to enrol at their chosen Italian University.
Candidates wishing to enrol on an Italian language course must complete a pre-enrolment process at the Italian Embassy in China by the end of August. On their pre-enrolment applications, candidates must specify the Italian University where they wish to enrol for their degree programme and the school they wish to attend their Italian language course.
To enrol on a degree course, students need to contact the Foreign Students office (Ufficio Stranieri) of their chosen University. Undergraduate students will be issued a statement of achievement only if they have passed the “Gao Kao” examination with a score of at least 400/750.
CiaoItaly provides a reception service and Italian language courses designed for the specific needs of students wishing to enrol at an Italian University. Lessons are taught by native speakers with expertise in the teaching of Italian to Chinese students. The school also offers many recreational activities which allow students to get to know the city of Turin and practise their Italian outside the classroom as much as possible. So as to offer the best possible courses, we guarantee a maximum of 10 students per class.
