Certificates for certifying the foreign language competency at the UPC

Certificates issued by Catalan universities serve as proof to certify the foreign language competency in the Catalan university system. Certificates with the CertACLES stamp are also valid in Spanish and European universities. Until July 2017, the UPC issued its own language certificates with the companies that provided courses for the UPC Language Programme. These certificates are still valid. Consult the table of valid certificates at the UPC and the exam sessions at universities with Idiomes UPC agreements.

Attainment of the foreign language competency on bachelor’s degrees at the UPC

Language certificates are one of the routes to attain the foreign language competency. Consult the current 4 routes at the UPC.


ECTS credit recognition for languages

You can have up to 6 ECTS credits recognised for languages with the same officially valid certificate that you submit to certify the foreign language competency if you obtained it during your bachelor’s degree, in accordance with the credit calculations in the academic regulations.
