UAB Plan for Languages (2016-2020)
To improve UAB teaching staff’s command of foreign languages and specifically the level of English for lecturers wishing to offer classes in English.
There are two types of support:
A: Grants for English courses at or above level B2. of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) organised at the UAB.
B. Grants for foreign language courses organised at the UAB or elsewhere.
Type of aid
Teaching & research staff
Financial support may be granted to academic staff on contract to the UAB (capitol 1) throughout the period in which the course takes place.
To receive the grant you must be able to accredit having passed the course during the 2017-18 academic year. A certificate stating that the course has been taken and passed must be submitted.
For courses that do not specify the achievement of one of the CEFR levels or a final exam, a certificate of attendance will be required from the centre where the course was taken. For type A the courses must be organised by the UAB. For type B the courses must be organised by entities within the MOBINT call for application (taula d'idiomes CIC i ACLES) or in European university language centres
In case of doubt regarding the level or characteristics of the course, the Language Service may request further information from the applicant and decide whether the course is eligible for this support and, if so, to which mode it belongs of those contained in the Amount section.
Where there is insufficient funding to cover the maximum amounts the percentages described in this document will be reduced and priority will be given to the applications under mode A.
