This can take place both just before the start of the semester abroad and under study during the semester. Please find out on each university`s website about the dates and fees of a language course.

Also, using their lab infrastructure a large number of tests will be performed on emulated MV and LV distribution grids according to the CIGRE benchmarks. THE OLS language courses offer participants the opportunity to improve their knowledge of the foreign language while abroad. After the first language test, participants who have reached a language level from A1 to B1 from the common European reference framework are automatically invited to take a language course. Participants who have achieved results with a higher level of language may use an optional language course in the national language or in the main working language tested.
