What does it mean to have a B1 Certificate in English? Having a B1 certificate in English is the key to success in many countries. While a degree and complementary courses can open doors, a B1 certificate in English can be an equally important part of your pitch for employment and further academic training. Due to the Bologna Process requisites, university students need to prove their language competence at different stages and for many purposes such as Erasmus mobility, graduating, entrance to master programmes, among others.

The MOOC starts next week but you already can enrol here. We are looking forward to seeing you aorund!
