Erasmus+ language support

Access to Erasmus+ language support is dependent on the UK's position on the Erasmus+ programme.

The promotion of language learning and linguistic diversity is one of the objectives of the Erasmus+ Programme.

If you are undertaking an exchange, or work placement through the Erasmus+ programme, it will be mandatory to take a language assessment prior to your departure, unless your native language is the language of study or work. Prior to your Erasmus+ mobility you will be contacted via email with information about how to access the language assessment.

Depending on the outcome of your initial assessment, you will either automatically be allocated a licence for an online language course, or offered the option of following an online course in the language of study or work.

Online courses are currently available in 22 European languages. The OLS language courses provide a combination of self-paced activities and interactive features. You can personalise your learning to meet your own needs and preferences, for example you can skip content in which you are already proficient. You can also benefit from interactive live sessions, such as a forum, moderated by native speaker tutors, where you can exchange experiences with other Erasmus+ students and tutoring sessions with an online tutor.

At the end of your exchange or work placement, you will take a final language assessment, which will quantify the progress you have made and you will receive a detailed notification confirming your new language level.

There is no charge for this language development provision.
