Specific Admission Requirements

Specific Admission Requirements

1. Student must hold a first level university degree.

2. Students wishing to include German, English and/or Dutch in their Master's programme must provide proof of having achieved passive communicative skills (listening and reading comprehension) at Level B2 ("Independent User" level) and active communicative skills (oral expression) at Level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
Students who have not previously studied German, English and/or Dutch to the aforementioned level must pass a passive and active communicative skills test organized by the programme committee; there are two sessions planned, the first in late August and the second in September, before the start of the university year. For further information, contact Marina Kyndt.
All students wishing to include French in their Master's programme must sit an admission test organized by the programme committee. There are two sessions planned, the first in late August and the second in September, before the start of the university year. For further information, visit https://uclouvain.be/fr/facultes/fial/tests-de-langues.html
If a student fails the test in one of the two languages, prerequisites will be added to his or her Master's programme (without exceeding a total of 15 credits). This will automatically lead to the Master's courses in this language being deferred to the second year of the Master's degree.
Should a student fail the test in both languages, admission to the Master's degree is subject to successful completion of the Master's in Multilingual Communication preparatory year [56.0], for which the programme is tailored to the student's academic record.
Course equivalences must be approved by the Chair of the Examination Board, the Examination Board Secretary and the Vice Dean.

GENERAL OBSERVATION

The Master in Multilingual Communication involves :
- the pursuit of studies in the two languages included in the Bachelor’s programme (two Germanic languages or one Germanic language and French), whether these languages were studied as a major or minor (Minor in Dutch Studies [30.0] - Minor in German Studies [30.0] - Minor in English Studies [30.0] - Minor in French Studies [30.0])
or
- students being required to pass a language test proving sufficient proficiency in the two languages they wish to include in their Master’s programme.


Examples :
- Students with a Bachelor’s degree in Modern Languages and Literatures: German, Dutch and English [180.0] who have taken a minor in the third Germanic language (Dutch) may include in their Master’s programme two of the three Germanic languages studied at undergraduate level.
- Students with a Bachelor’s degree in Modern Languages and Literatures: General [180.0] who have taken a minor in a second Germanic language may include in their Master’s programme the two Germanic languages studied at undergraduate level.
- Students with a Bachelor’s degree in Information and Communication whose undergraduate results have been deemed sufficient in one of the two Germanic languages and who have passed the language test in a second Germanic language may include in their Master’s programme the two Germanic languages in question.
