Bachelor en Cultures Européennes - English studies

Language Requirements

The Bachelor en Cultures Européennes is a trilingual programme that actively promotes multilingualism and code-switching between languages. Although you can apply and complete the programme with bilingual combinations of English and German or English and French, we encourage you to take this opportunity to learn and study in a third language. 

Step 1

Verified Language Skills in English


To apply to this programme, your level of English must be equivalent to a C1 or C2 (‘proficient user’) on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment (CEFR). This corresponds to the following language qualifications:

  • IELTS – Score 7 (Band 7 = ‘good user’)
  • CPE (Certificate of Proficiency in English), Level C2
  • CAE (Certificate in Advanced English), Level C1
  • TOEFL Internet-based Test: Minimal Total Score = 95/120 (C1 or above) and the corresponding minimum in each skills category in the Internet-based TOEFL Test (skill categories: reading: 24, listening: 22, speaking: 25, writing: 24).


Step 2

Verified Language Skills in German and French


Because the common curriculum of our programme (60 ECTS) is trilingual, you will need:

  • verified language skills (B2) in a second language (German or French);
  • an A2 level in a third language (German or French).
