International Students in Romania
International students (foreign students) get their higher education in universities, academies and institutes, that are accredited and have a special license to teach foreign students. All the universities from the list of universities possess the license. The Ministry of Education, Research, Youth and Sports of Romania controls the quality of educational services.
The examination of Romanian/ English/ French language skills for international students that apply for instruction in one of these languages, without preparatory year, takes place according to the methodology approved by the Institute of Romanian Language.
International students exempted from language test:
- you are from the country where the language is officially,
- you have done your previous studies in the same language with the language of instruction
- you have a certificate of language proficiency
- you can prove with documents that you have studied Romanian for at least four years
The testing centres and the periods for taking the language exams will be established subsequently.
If you do not know the language of study, you must attend the courses of the Preparatory year in order to learn Romanian. During the first semester of the Preparatory year, you will study Romanian as a foreign language while during the second semester, you will study the Romanian vocabulary specific for the faculty fields where they will continue their studies: technical, mathematics, medicine, economy, law, humanists, agronomy, etc.
