Since 2021, there are two possibilities for obtaining English language proficiency, according to Ordinance 1684/2021

 

1 - Through the evaluation carried out in English language institutes recognized by the PPGEBM; 

 

2 - Through the application of a test by the advisor.

Assessment performed by the advisor

Alternatively, the advisor may apply a test to his mentee, under the following conditions:

III - The advisor is responsible for preparing the student's certificate of proficiency.

 

Students who get at least 50% of the questions right will be considered proficient in English. Obviously, this test is only valid for the PPGEBM and we will not provide a certificate of proficiency.
