Confirmation of the Language Level
The University of Economics in Bratislava offers courses mostly in the English language, therefore, it is necessary for a student to have a sufficient language level (the minimum level required is B2 level) according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages established by the Council of Europe.
The Confirmation of Foreign Language Proficiency Level B2 should be issued by the sending university based on the results of any standardized language examination, which demonstrates the required level of foreign language proficiency acquired by the incoming students, but we do not require any certificate, confirmation from your home university about the English skills, confirmed by your coordinator is sufficient.
Each student from a non-EU country is obliged to resolve his/her visa requirements at the relevant embassy, based on a forwarded acceptance letter before the arrival to the Slovak Republic.
