    Accepted Language Tests and Diplomas


There are specific language requirements at the College of Europe, Bruges campus and Natolin campus.


We prefer students to obtain external language certificates. All international language certificates are accepted as long as they indicate the Council of Europe's levels.


Students may, if not in possession of a language certificate, also supply a university certificate or a recommendation letter written by a language professor or teacher referring to the applicant's language levels in relation to the Council of Europe levels.


We accept all language certificates from universities, language schools and testing organizations, as long as the language level is shown clearly.


The College of Europe can recommend the following international language tests:




  • University of Cambridge


We accept TOEFL certificates as long as students show that the level corresponds to the College requirements for the programme being applied for.


Please note that if your TOEFL/IELTS qualification runs out before you begin at the College in September, you do not have to retake the test if the expiry date falls within a reasonable period which would allow you to be considered as an applicant.



  • Diplômes de l'Alliance française


  • Test de Connaissance du français (TCF):

  • Certificat de Francais Juridique de la Chambre de Commerce et d'Industrie de Paris

It is the responsibility of the applicant to make sure all materials are submitted online. Applications which are not complete, i.e. including all required uploads, cannot be submitted and will not be reviewed.
