Upon receiving the nomination, the Università del Molise’s IRO will send a confirmation of reception both to the Home University and to the nominated student.

Academic Calendar

In the framework of the Erasmus Students Mobility for Studies (SMS), incoming students are allowed to earn credits (ECTS) by taking part in teaching activities (like lectures, classes or practical learning) at the hosting University, and according to the rules of the hosting University. The Università del Molise’s teaching activities are organized yearly in two distinct semesters (Fall and Spring, or as they are frequently called in Italian, First and Second) which are in their turn divided into a teaching period and an examination period, according to the following Academic Calendar:

1st Semester (Fall semester) From 21 September to end February
Teaching period From 21 September to 22 December
Examination period From 11 January to 26 February
2nd Semester (Spring-Summer) From 1 March to 30 July
Teaching period From 1 March to 7 June
Examination period From 8 June to 30 July

Class schedules are set yearly, just before lessons start.


In the Italian university system, a certain number of credits (CFU in Italian; 1 CFU = 1 ECTS) is assigned to each teaching activity, and each teaching activity is considered completed after passing a final exam. The final exam may be written, oral, or a mix of the two. On-the-run tests during the course of the teachings may be also planned. The final examination result is graded on a scale from 0 to 30 points. To pass the final exam it is needed to reach at least 18 points. Indicatively, each numerical grade corresponds to a qualitative grade as follows: 18-23: Sufficient to pass; 24-27: Good; 28-30: Excellent; 30 cum laude: Mention of honour.

Language Requirements

The official language of instruction is Italian. Università del Molise  strongly recommends that Erasmus incoming students possess at least A2 level of knowledge of Italian language before the mobility starts, according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). However, an official certification of competence in Italian is not required to apply. We strongly recommend Erasmus incoming students to get the highest possible benefit from the Erasmus On Line Linguistic Support (OLS) licenses provided by their Home Universities in order to develop confidence with Italian language before and during the mobility.

Università del Molise adopts English as vehicular language, and Erasmus incoming students are expected to know English at a sufficient level, in order to interact with administrative offices and professors.

A list of teachings delivered in English is set yearly and is available here.

Teachers and professors are open to provide Erasmus students studying materials in English or other languages upon request, even for the teaching activities delivered in Italian. Professors, in addition, may allow Erasmus students to take final exams in English or other languages different from Italian, but this must be agreed upon case by case, before the examination period starts, and under direct request of the Erasmus incoming student.
