Romanian Language Preparatory Year


The Preparatory Program of Romanian Language for Foreign Citizens is an intensive course, which aims at the development of the socio-linguistic and cultural competencies necessary to pursue studies in the Romanian language at Bachelor’s, Master or Doctoral levels, but it also helps the students to successfully adapt to the new socio-cultural environment.

This Romanian language course is designed for foreign students who want to enroll in Romanian graduate and postgraduate (Master, Ph.D., specialization) courses in Romania. Our expertise has been proven over more than 20 years and we pride ourselves on specialized teachers, carefully chosen study materials, and varied teaching methods. Moreover, we have successfully delivered online courses on our university e-learning platforms: MS Teams and Moodle.

The teaching activities are interactive, and based on the contextual practice of grammar and vocabulary elements. They are as varied as possible and cover all the four competencies necessary for learning foreign languages: oral/written comprehension, written/oral production, in a very natural form of integration, close to reality – from comprehension to production, from controlled to free production.


linguistic competences

development of linguistic competencies, according to the B1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Foreign Languages elaborated by the Council of Europe, which helps the students to attend graduate, postgraduate or professional specialization courses

culture and civilization

the acquisition of a series of culture and civilization elements, as well as the development of intercultural competencies

specialized vocabulary

the acquisition of specialized vocabulary, which facilitates the students’ oral and written expression, as well as oral and written comprehension in specialized language from various domains such as: medical, technical, humanistic, and social

The classes are taught throughout one academic year (2 semesters), ensuring the number of hours necessary for covering the teaching subject. The course output is the acquisition of general and specialized language knowledge and competencies, but also the acquisition of knowledge in the field of Romanian culture and civilization.

After passing the exams in all studied disciplines, at the end of the preparatory year, you will receive a graduation certificate, necessary to apply for undergraduate and postgraduate studies in Romania.
