OLS is a compulsary part of the Erasmus+ program and supports students and interns in improving their foreign language competence.
OLS language test: If you are not a native Speaker you have to pass 2 OLS online language tests in the language of your studies, one before and one after your mobility. The course can be passed in Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, German, Greek, English, Spanish, Finnish, French, Croatian, Hungarian, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak and Swedish. Please note that the result of this test has no influence on your Erasmus+ funding!
OLS language course: In addition to the test all participants with a language Level from A1 to B1 are automatically invited to this online language course to improve it. The participation is voluntary. Also students with a Level higher than B1 can take part on demand (ask the Erasmus coordinator).
The OLS Systems works electronically: All students get the link to the test or the course by email after the Erasmus+ application.
