The UOC's English courses are taught are organized into five levels, each of which is divided into two parts.

They start with A1-level courses for beginners and end with C1-level courses.

Instructors use self-correcting multimedia materials, communication tools and different classroom activities to help students develop their oral and written comprehension and expression skills, and improve their ability to communicate in English.

Guidance on enrolment

We recommend that you take the level test when deciding which course best suits your current level. If you have no prior knowledge and would like to enrol on a beginners' course, you may proceed directly to enrolment.

CLUC English tests

If you enrol at the UOC Centre for Modern Languages, you can register for the CLUC (Catalan Universities Language Certificate) B2-level English examination. CLUC examinations are taken in person at one of the universities in Catalonia.
