English is one of the two working languages of the College. A good working knowledge of English is an essential condition for admission. The College usually requires students to have a minimum level of B1 on the Council of Europe language scales. International Relations and Diplomacy students should have a C1 level in English.
All applicants should evaluate their language skills in the online application form and, when possible, supply internationally recognised certificates or recommendations from language teachers or professors mentioning the applicant's level in relation to the common European framework for languages. Please note that there are specific language requirements for the different study programmes.
