UAB Languages level tests
FAQ's about level tests
If you already have some knowledge of the language you want to study with us, you’ll need to do a level test so that we can advise you on the best course to take and on your learning in general.
You don't need to do a level test if
- you want to begin a new language from zero
- you have already studied with us at the level just below the one you want to take now less than two years ago.
- you have a recognised certificate that is less than two years old
Level tests are organised some weeks before the courses start. You can do the test online or onsite.
Onsite level tests
There is no need to sign up or book a time to take the on-site test. You only need to go to the Language Service in one of the established time-slots. The test is free of charge and does not commit you to enrolling on any course.
Online level tests
Please book a time slot to do a level test online via Teams.
The level test consists of a multiple-choice exercise, a writing exercise and a short interview.
At the end of the test, the teacher will tell you which course would be best for you and you can then enrol at the UAB Idiomes Campus offices.
Level tests are not exams, so UAB Idiomes does not issue any certificates after them.
Once you know the result of your level, you should go to our Administration office to register for the course.
