The information is constantly updated, therefore check the page frequently.


What is TARM?

Enrolment in all free-access courses requires you to take the TARM.

Starting from the 2018-2019 academic year, the TARM will be the only test required to all aspiring first-year students of a free-access Bachelor or Full-cycle degree programme, that is, all programmes which don’t require an entrance test or a limited number of students.

The TARM will be taken only once in the University, even if you fail it. Those who already took it in May 2018 and failed, must take it again starting from September 2018.

In 2018, it will take place from July 4 to July 26. The intensive language course, held by qualified professors, include a wide variety of cultural activities: seminars, tours, day trips, tastings and many other opportunities to learn about and appreciate completely the Piedmontese region. For 20 years, the strenght of our Summer Schools has been the chance of combining a high-quality Italian language course with the experience of an unforgettable holiday in Piedmont. A full-immersion in the Italian culture with TUE staff, young interns of the University of Turin and Master students of the Dipartimento di Lingue Straniere in Promozione e Organizzazione turistico-culturale del Territorio.

Since 1998, TUE Summer Schools have started a twenty-year-old tradition of excellence in teaching L2 Italian, becoming a project of promotion of our area and of our cultural heritage for foreigners coming from every part of the world.

The Summer School is oriented towards students, teachers, professors, doctors, researchers and scholarship recipients, but also to freelancers and foreign workers, citizens living in Turin and everyone who is interested in studying Italian. Courses are available in all levels, from pre-A1 to C1, according to the criteria of the Common European Framework of Reference. This year, there will be a chance for foreign students of gaining ECTS credits which they can use in their University.

cliniche legali contro la tratta di esseri umani

The University of Turin promotes Law Clinics, already common abroad. The clinical-legal method teaches law based on real cases, by applying codes to concrete contexts. Five clinics have been launched at the Law Department (Dipartimento di Giurisprudenza), each one dedicated to a different issue: inmates and former inmates; refugees and migrants; homeless people; disabled people; and human trafficking victims.

Clinics work like traditional university courses, but unlike the latter, provide more in-depth law concepts, promote social justice and allow concrete access to rights and justice. The history of clinic laws is recent: they started as an experimental project in 2015-1016 academic year, and became fully operational last year. Now, 10 students are participating, divided in pairs among 8 institutions, including Comune di Torino.

The collaboration with the Comune took place in the Anello Forte project (progetto Anello Forte), an initiative  by Regione Piemonte to face human trafficking and exploitation, It aims to identify victims as soon as possible, and consequently to protect them and include them socially. Until now, 19 victims have been identified by the students, who are also establishing 6 legal memories, of which no results are yet available.

The work of the clinic is part of the Third Mission activities: returning knowledge to the area. Alongside education and research, the civic engagement of the University is gaining importance, putting new generations at the service of society, allowing students to have a valid experience in the field and the chance to apply what they have learned in the classroom.

The clinic arranges meetings with the alleged victims – of 11,000 Nigerian women who disembarked in Sicily from Libya, 80% are victims of human trafficking, according to the data from IOM (International Organization for Migration) – and, with the presence of a cultural mediator, it commits to know whether it’s possible to activate international protection. Students then must write a legal record, together with a reconstruction of the victim’s story.

Tirocini Fondazione Crui

Fondazione CRUI is promoting a call for the selection of 16 curricular interships in Italian schools abroad.

What is Fondazione CRUI?

Founded in 2001 in the Conference of Italian University Deans (Conferenza dei Rettori delle Università Italiane) to provide services to universities, Fondazione CRUI has always focused its attention on innovation and job placement for university students.

Promoting internships for university students and graduates is an activity held by the Fondazione since 2001. high quality standards for internships as well as interns are guaranteed, thanks to the collaboration with important public and private entities, and to an advanced management and selection system in which candidates’ universities take part in.

Fondazione CRUI, as referee for the entire university system, finds strategic partners with which it organises internships. Its goal is to ensure Universities and its students will have a highly educational and useful experience for the development of a conscious approach to the job market, while offering host entities the opportunity to select their own interns among excellence in all Italian universities.

Sciopero docenti UniTo

The Movimento per la Dignità della Docenza Universitaria have announced a strike during the next summer exam session of 2017/2018 academic year, from June 1, 2018 to July 31, 2018.

Professors who will take part in the strike will not administer the first programmed exams. The following exams of the summer session will take place regularly.

It will be possible to schedule extraordinary exams:

  • from the fourteenth day after the day of the strike, if there’s only one exam from June 1 to July 31, or if there are 5 or less chances per year of re-taking the exam set ofr the day of the strike
  • approximately 7 days after the day of the strike, for graduating students, Erasmus students, students with specific health issues or pregnant students.

We guarantee therefore at least one chance of taking every exam during the summer session.

Based on the principles of the right to strike, professors are not obliged to communicate their intention of striking beforehand.

For further information, visit the Movimento per la Dignità della Docenza Universitaria website, on Sciopero giugno-luglio 2018 (2018 June-July strike) page. At the end of the page you will find in-depth documents, for Professors and Researchers taking part in the strike, with important clarifications for students as well.

In particular:

  • Integrazione indicazioni per sciopero 24-5-2018.pdf, is a document structured in questions and answers, providing precise and operational information on the striking method of professors and researchers (e.g. how a possible extraordinary exam will take place and how to schedule one; rules for students who have the urgency of taking the exam)
  • Indicazioni dettagliate per lo sciopero 8-5-2018.pdf, is the initial document, where you can find information about the reasons for the strike and basic instructions on how a strike works.

UniTo is completely available to help minimize the inconvenience for students.
