The Language Centre of the University SLAM manages language proficiency test in French, English, Spanish and German (3 ECTS) for Political, Economic and Social sciences bachelor and master degrees.
Students who already have a language certificate- at equal or higher level than the language requirements of the chosen degree programme- recognised by the University can ask for validation by sending it through Infostudenti Service to the Language Centre of the University.
The certificate must have been attained within 3 years of the day of presentation.
Students who do not have a valid language certificate will have to take a placement test in one of the languages they have chosen. French, Spanish and German tests can be taken exclusively in the first trimester, according to the calendar above.
Students must pay attention to the foreign language they choose because it is not possible change it once the placement test has been taken.
Each student can take the test in the chosen language only once.
Students who attain the required level will receive the language assessment credits (3CFU), according to their study plan.
Those who fail the test will have to attend a 20-hour language course.
The courses take place in the third trimester and the attendance is compulsory. At the end of the course, students have to take an end of course test up to 5 times. In order to be admitted to the end of course test, students have to attend at least 60% of the course. Those who do not attend the required number of in-person learning and exercises, will not be admitted to the end of course test but they can take the placement test again during the first trimester of the following year.
