Language Centre

In today’s world, language proficiency is the cornerstone for personal development and the basis to achieving academic and professional excellence. The Language Centre is part of the Vice-Rectorate for Internationalisation and Digital Transformation. Its aim is to provide quality language tuition, thus contributing to the internationalisation of the university and its environment.

The Language Centre provides services to both national and international members of the university community, as per three main functions:

  • Improving language proficiency
  • Integration through activities, such as meetings, clubs and debates as well as language accreditation.
  • Further, it is a source of objective information where students can learn more about the language requirements they need to meet in order to achieve their academic and professional goals, as well as the resources available to them to do so.

The Language Centre offers language courses in three sessions every year - Semester 1, Semester 2 and a Summer Intensive Course in small groups divided by levels as per the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Courses comprise 40 hours of tuition and are offered at very competitive prices for CEU students - €275. Tuition hours are scheduled so as to be compatible with students’ timetables as well as convenient for them.

Classes use a communicative approach and work on all language skills, and students can choose between a general language course or one that helps them prepare for official exams.

The Language Centre offers specific courses to prepare for TOEFL ITP and TOEFL iBT for all CEU students enrolled in International Bilingual Programmes (IBP’s). These courses run for a whole quarter (cuatrimestre) and include 20 hours of tuition. They are aimed at students who are yet to meet the language requirements for their programme. These courses are free of charge for students enrolled in IBP’s.

The Language Centre offers Spanish as a Foreign Language courses to international students who have chosen to study Dentistry or Physiotherapy at CEU, as well as to Erasmus exchange students from over 25 countries.

Courses run for a whole quarter (cuatrimestre) and they are taught in groups divided by levels as per the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The aim of these courses is to introduce key language structures and communicative aspects of Spanish.

The Diplomas de Español como Lengua Extranjera (DELE) are official language certifications awarded by Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education. In addition to certifying language proficiency in Spanish as a Foreign Language, they are internationally recognised and do not have an expiration date.

The Language Centre at Universidad CEU San Pablo has been recognised as a DELE Examination Centre by Instituto Cervantes since 2011.
