Who can register for the test

Anyone over 16 years of age.


The registration fee is €100 for students of the University of Valencia and €120 for the rest of candidates, and it entitles to one attempt at one level. Nevertheless, if you pass either the oral or the written paper, your mark will be kept for a year. During that time, you can register to retake the failed paper getting a 30% off, and you will only need to pass this paper to obtain the certificate. 

University staff can ask for official language tests grants.


CELI certificates are fully recognised by the University of Valencia, by the Italian Ministry of Education and also by private companies, chambers of commerce and public and private educational systems around the world. They certify an adequate knowledge of Italian for professional or academic activity in Spain and around the world at the required level.
