Changes in the certificates that can be used to certify the foreign language competency at the UPC
Until the 2016-2017 academic year, the UPC issued its own language certificates for courses passed at Merit School and Unicor Languages, the companies that provided courses for the UPC Language Programme until July 2017. From this academic year onwards, the UPC offers language courses through agreements with other universities. Consult the table of valid certificates.

Since the introduction of bachelor’s degrees, the UPC, in its academic regulations, considers the foreign language competency to have been attained in one of four ways. Further information


ECTS credit recognition for language certificates at the UPC

ECTS credit recognition for languages has been extended to include any officially valid certificates for the foreign language competency that you submitted while you were taking a bachelor’s degree.
