Frequently Asked Questions About Erasmus Applications

Frequently Asked Questions About Erasmus Applications

1. Language requirements for placement:

  • The current requirements mandate students going to Universidad de La Laguna to have a Spanish A2 and Universita degli Studi di Perugia to have an Italian B1 proficiency. You MUST have proof of proficiency for these two universities when you make your Erasmus application for placement.
  • English is currently sufficient for all other universities. However, TU Eindhoven requires an IELTS exam score equivalent to level C1 or higher, Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha requires a score (from an international exam like TOEFL, IELTS..) equivalent to B1 or higher (You will need this proof of proficiency if you are placed to this university – so it is not needed when you make Erasmus applications for placement). The partner universities may update these requirements at any time.

2. Language requirements for courses: The courses offered at the partner universities where English proficiency is sufficient may change at each semester, however based on previous semesters, students usually could find courses offered in English. However, there could be some semesters in which due to several factors, you may not be able to enroll in a total of 30 ECTS credits taught in English.
