There is no need for a certificate. However, Region Europe is a program entirely in English, including extra-academic activities, so basic knowledge of the language is necessary for the understanding and interaction both with Professors and other students, and for the completion of the final paper.
The group is mainly international: aside from UniTo students, participants will come from Europe, Asia, Africa and Americas, in a group suitable for the Region Europe Program. Through the years an increasing number of Erasmus, double-degree and exchange students have attended. The international environment is one of the most significant aspects of this Program.
Students are free to choose the lectures in which they are the most interested. Each student will be able to choose freely the number of lectures they wish to attend among the 45 proposed ones, without being bound to the division of the program in three modules.
The lectures calendar will be published at the beginning of the Program. Usually, classes take place from Monday to Friday, with a variable schedule between 8 am to 8 pm (CET time). An average of one/two lectures per day is to be expected.
Students' signatures, will be collected during each lecture. With the purpose of confirming attendance, a roll call could be done occasionally in a casual moment during the lectures. Students who register for the lectures but are later found to be absent at the roll call will lose the possibility to obtain Region Europe’s credits or the certificate of participation.
Lectures will take place atthe University of Turin - Campus Luigi Einaudi.
