Erasmus Course Overview

This course is designed specifically for university Erasmus program students. Classes use materials specially developed to cover specific needs and focus on extending the speaking and comprehension skills needed to follow classes at university. The groups are organized by level.

At the end of the course there is a final exam. Students who pass the final exam are eligible to obtain ECTS (elective) credits.

Course certificate

The course certificate specifies course dates, the number of contact hours, language level obtained, final grade and ECTS credits. In the case of not passing the exam, an attendance certificate is issued.


Students must attend at least 80% of classes; in the case of not fulfilling attendance requirements, up to 10% of the final result can be penalized.
