The Language Centre of the University SLAM manages language proficiency test of French, Spanish German and Anglo-American (6 ECTS) required by Political Sciences (SPO), Social Sciences for Globalization (GLO)
The required levels are:
Advanced Anglo-American: C1
Students who already have a language certificate recognised by the University can ask for validation by sending it through Infostudenti Service to the Language Centre of the University.
Students who do not have a valid language certificate will have to take an online placement test in one of the languages they have chosen. French, Spanish and German tests can be taken in the first trimester, according to the calendar above.
Each student can take the test in the chosen language only once.
Students who pass the test of the required level will receive the language assessment credits, according to their study plan. Those who fail the test will have to attend a 40-hour language course. The courses take place in the second and 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 75% 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 semester of the following year.
