All partner universities we are having a cooperation with are offering courses in English. It does mean that you do not need to speak the language of the country you are going to. Nevertheless this might be a benefit for you, especially in Spain, France and German. Once you are accepted for an exchange semester you will receive English language Proficiency letter from your coordinator at JU. This letter is a proof of your language prerequesities and it is accepted by many of our partner universities. However Language Proficiency letter is not accepted by ALL universities, especially some of the universities in the US and Australia are still requiring TOEFL tests. Please check Intapps for actual English requirements information for each university.


Specific information about how many credits you must earn prior to going abroad and what courses are essential can be found at "Opportunities within your programme" section where you can find programme specific information.
