Buddy Programme

We know how important is during the first days to find a familiar face among the crowd, this is why the Buddy Program aims to match each international student with a local student of UER, who can give you a hand with the doubts you might have and will be your mate.

Furthermore, we organize some entertaining activities so that you can spend quality time with your new buddy and other fellows, both Italians and international, smooth your integration in the college life, discover the Eternal City and the Italian culture.

Grading system


The academic credit system adopted by the Italian universities is based on “CFU” (acronym for “Crediti Formativi Universitari”). A CFU corresponds to 25 hours of work per student, including time for personal study. For each didactic activity, the student gains a determined number of CFU. The European University of Rome generally recognizes the equivalence 1 CFU = 1 ECTS and adopts an ECTS mark conversion scale:

UER Grades ECTS Grades Decimal Grades
30 e lode/30 A+/A 10
29/27 B+/B- 9
26/25 C+/C 8
24/23 D+/D 7
22/18 E+/E- 6/5
<18 F 5/4

Italian language and culture courses

ItalianTo all the incoming students that aim to study in Italian, we recommend to have a B2 Italian knowledge level. We require them to certificate, at least, a B1 Italian language level, but in this case, attending the Italian language course offered by the UER would be compulsory. Apart from learning linguistic aspects of the language, you will also discover the Italian culture.

There are 2 levels (beginners & advanced). It is held twice a week, from October to December and from March to May and each session lasts 45 min. The course will be recognized with 3 ECTS (for one semester).  At the beginning of each semester the student will take a placement test. The course is for free but the placement test has a symbolic price of 20 euro, to be oaid before taking the placement test.
