PhD students at the University of Cagliari

For the last few years, the University Language Centre (CLA) has been in charge of assessing the English language competence of our PhD students, in view of their reaching the B2 level of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Languages), in accordance with all Doctorate Schools present at our University.

 To this purpose, CLA organise each year an English ASSESSMENT test dedicated to all our PhD students. In case your test result is B2 or higher, you will be invited to take a speaking test, to confirm your English competence at B2 or higher (the cost of these interviews will be covered by our Language Centre).


The test results will be communicated by email to your PhD tutors and/or coordinators. They will enable you to access our language courses, where needed, which will start during the next months.

In order to take the assessment test, please fill in the form at the following link by logging with your Unica Esse3 credentials (please see the attachment files): (responses will be accepted until 31/01/2022 at 12.00 am).

Please note that if you have a language certificate among those accepted by our centre , not older than 5 years, you will be exempted from taking our test.  Thus, you are kindly requested to upload the document in the attachment area of the above mentioned form (in PDF format).
