Linguistic skills at entry level
In order to attend the CEILS course, at least a B2 level in English is required.
The language requirement will be verified once you are enrolled.
In case the requirement is missing at the moment of enrolment, you will have to recover it before the first exam sitting, either by providing International certificates recognized by the CLA (University Language Centre), or by taking the internal exam of the CLA.
If you have a certificate and you intend to ask for the recognition of the credits, you must upload it through an online procedure available starting from October 1st, 2018.
Linguistic skills to be achieved
- You are required to achieve a proficient level (C1) in English over the course of the bachelor;
- C1 level in English or higher corresponds to 6 ECTS credits in your Study plan
- To reach the required level of English you are to attend classes at the CLA
- In case you already hold an English language certificate at C1 level at the moment of enrolment, you will be assigned the 6 ECTS credits in your Study plan.
Second foreign language
- You have to achieve a good working knowledge (B1) in a second foreign language, by choosing among those taught at the CLA, which are: German, French, Spanish and Italian (compulsory for non-Italian nationals)
- B1 level (or higher) in the second language corresponds to 6 ECTS credits in the Study plan
- To reach the required level of B1 you can either attend classes at the CLA or provide International certificates recognized by the CLA
- In case you register a B1 level certificate, and subsequently wish to take an exam of a B2 level or higher within the same language, the higher language level will also be inserted in your Study plan, but you will not receive any extra credits.
If you have a certificate and you intend to ask for the recognition of the credits, you must upload it through an online procedure available starting from October 2018.
