Universitat Rovira i Virgili

Accreditation of Catalan for the teaching and research staff

The teaching staff of Catalan universities are required to accredit that they have a sufficient command of both spoken and written Catalan so that they can respond to the demands of their academic tasks (Decree 128/2010, 14 September).

To allow them to do so, every semester (in May and June) the URV's Language Service organises exams for the Certificate of the Advanced Catalan for teaching and research staff.

The exams are preceded by a preparatory course that can be either online (Advanced Catalan for teaching and research staff) or face to face (Advanced Catalan sessions for teaching and research staff). Like the exams, this course is free.
