Foreign Language Exams

The Faculty of Arts conducts examinations in foreign languages, coordinated by the Center for Pedagogical Education.

The University of Ljubljana's Faculty of Arts provides exams in foreign languages, coordinated by the Centre for Pedagogical Education (CPE).

This exams are intended for candidates with at least a minimum knowledge of a foreign language who require a certificate of knowledge of a foreign language for personal or official purposes, e.g. for enrolment in graduate study, applying for employment or a scholarship, or for study abroad. The Faculty of Arts only offers exams, while the choice of language education is at the candidate's discretion.

Languages Available

We offer exams in 23 languages: Albanian, English, German, Dutch, Swedish, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Croatian, Serbian, Macedonian, Russian, Czech, Slovak, Polish, Hungarian, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, New and Ancient Greek and Latin.

There is no official schedule for foreign language examinations. The candidate is required to contact the appropriate examiner for each language and set the date and time. In modern (European) languages he/she should also inform the examiner about the level of the Common European Language Framework (CEFR) at which he/she wishes to take the exam. You can help yourself with the self-assessment grid or the application.

No special preparations are required to attend the examination (e.g. no special preliminary courses). The examination usually includes testing communicative competencies in four categories, namely: writing, reading comprehension, oral communication, and listening comprehension. Candidates can obtain more detailed descriptions of the examinations and instructions regarding exam preparation from individual examiners.

In modern (European) languages Albanian, English, German, Dutch, French, Italian, Spanish, Croatian, Serbian, Czech, Polish, Slovak and Russian, as well as in Korean, the exams are conducted at A2–C2 levels according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). After successfully passing the exam in the above languages candidates will receive a Slovene-English certificate stating the level according to the CEFR.

In other languages, the level of language assessed in the exam is not determined by the exam catalog, but can be described in a "communicative" sense. The exams are therefore pragmatically based: they take into account language use, i. e. for example the ability to communicate on current social, everyday, political topics, etc., and the certificate does not indicate the level according to the CEFR.

The candidates should contact the CPE during office hours (every day 11:00–13:00) and before attending the examination. If the examination fee is being paid for by your employer or another legal person, you must submit the original order form in advance. Complaints made at a later time will not be considered.

The contact person for information regarding foreign language examinations is dr. Mojca Leskovec (, Phone: +386 1 241 10 47).

The price of a foreign language examination is 123,02 EUR.


During the epidemic, foreign language exams are conducted remotely via videoconferencing tools and
