Erasmus+ Language Support

For Erasmus+ placements taking place in the academic year 2017/18:

The promotion of language learning and linguistic diversity is one of the main objectives of Erasmus+.  The EC has provided an Online Linguistic Support (OLS) system that is designed to assess the competence in the langauge of study or work before and after the mobility.  The assessment is mandatory for those students undertaking a mobility period of two months or longer in one of the following 12 languages where it is not the student's native language:

  • English
  • Spanish
  • Italian
  • French
  • German
  • Dutch
  • Czech
  • Danish
  • Greek
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Swedish

The results of the language assessment test carried out by participants before their departure will not stop them from taking part in the mobility activity, whatever the result, unless the receiving institution has specified the language level required.
