Certificates and Exams

Spanish

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.

During this exam period, you can take exams to accredit one of the levels of the European Framework of Reference for Languages. The levels for which you can take exams during this period are: A1, A2, B1 and B2

If the exam level for which you are interested in gaining accreditation is not offered, you can request a level on demand.

At least 10 working days before the first test in the exam, the SdL must receive the individualised recommendations report from the UAB’s PIUNE (or another recognised entity for such purposes), in which all recommended adaptations are clearly indicated. If this report is not received, or if it is not received in time, no adaptations can be made to the examinations.
