Humanities bachelor's degree courses: assessment of a European Union language (3 credits)

SLAM - University of Milan Language Centre manages 3 credit language proficiency tests of one of the languages of the European Union - French, Spanish and German - for students of Liberal Studies in Communication.

Philosophy, Humanities, History and Human Science of Environment, Landscape and Territory students can choose this language proficiency as an elective activity, according to their programme.

The required levels are the following:

  • French: B1
  • Spanish: B1
  • German: A2

Students who already have a language certificate among those accepted by the University, gotten no more than 3 years prior to its submission and at a level equal to or higher than that required, can ask for validation by uploading it through the InformaStudenti service.

Those who do not have a valid language certificate will have to take an entry-level test in one of the languages they have chosen.

Entry-level tests in French, Spanish and German take place twice a year, in November and February.

Each student can take the test in the chosen language only once per academic year.

Students who attain the required level will receive the corresponding language assessment credits, according to their degree programme.

Those who fail the test will have to attend a 40-hour language course. Courses take place in the second semester and attendance is compulsory. At the end of the course, students have to take an end of course test which can be sat up to 5 times in order to pass it. In order to be admitted to the end of course test, students must have attended at least 75% of classes. Those who do not attend the required number of classes will not be admitted to the end of course test, but they can take the entry-level test again during the first semester of the following year.
