Exams and Certificates


We offer language exams to the university community and to anyone aged 16 or more who wishes to certify their level of proficiency in a language. Our level certificates are university certificates, issued by the UAB Language Service and recognised by all Catalan universities, the Catalan Government (Generalitat) and many companies and organisations. They are valid for obtaining credits at the UAB, and as proof of having the required B2 level in a third language, for universities in Catalonia.

You will find information below about the next exam session at UAB Languages Barcelona, in June 2021.  UAB Languages Campus offers other exam sessions

Exam candidates with special needs 
UAB Languages Barcelona will attempt to adapt the exams to meet the particular needs of candidates with disabilities. Candidates should therefore express these needs when enrolling. A UAB Idiomes Barcelona representative will then get in contact and arrange for the Student Disability Service (PIUNE) or another specialist service to report on the modifications that need to be made.

The results will be posted on 20 June. Students will receive an email with partial and final results. 
Certificates are issued within a maximum of 7 working days.
