Language

The language of courses and evaluations is English. During the final semester, the professional thesis project is also written and defended in English.

Nevertheless, local European languages are integrated and supported in the teaching programme, allowing students the opportunity to acquire more linguistic competencies in order to promote:

  • An optimal integration in hosting countries
  • A better interaction and exchange with local producers and institutional actors of the wine industry.

Learning the local language can also be helpful if a student wishes to pursue a PhD degree in one of the hosting countries.

For that reason, hosting country language courses are available, either as “required” in the second semester (Italian or Portuguese) or as “optional” in the third semester (French). For students who master the language of the hosting country in the second semester, a replacement study will be proposed in the scientific laboratory of the partner institution.
