  • All the studies. International exchange students can take courses from more than one degree, level or even faculty or school, as long as the academic coordinator considers the student has enough background to follow the course.
  • Teaching languages at the UdL
    • Courses in English
    • Erasmus OLS: Erasmus students must carry out the OLS language assessment in English and/or Spanish (there is no OLS in Catalan yet) before the mobility period. The completion of the online assessment before departure is a pre-requisite for the mobility, except in duly justified cases. The level of language competence in English that the participant already has or agrees to acquire by the start of the mobility period is a B1. Moreover, Erasmus students can follow OLS language courses (English and Spanish), starting as soon as they receive access to the OLS platform.
