Online Linguistic Support (OLS)
The OLS platform will automatically allocate the verified language course licence to students who obtain a level up to and including B1 in the preliminary assessment.
Students who obtain a level equal to or higher than B2 in their allocated language in the preliminary assessment will be able to choose whether to enrol on the advanced course in the same language or a foundation course in the official language of their destination country (if included on the OLS platform).
The allocated language cannot be changed and students must use their licence.
At their discretion, Erasmus+ destinations can use the language level achieved in the preliminary assessment into account to satisfy their specific language admission criteria. Students must contact their host institution to discuss this.
By 15 October each year, once students return from their Erasmus+ period, the OLS platform will automatically send students a reminder to sit their final assessment. Students that haven’t sat the test by 31 October will be required to repay their Erasmus+ bursary in full.
