A recognition scheme for language learning in higher education
The UNILANG recognition scheme serves to help UK university students articulate and translate what their language learning outcomes mean in terms of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). It provides a recognised certificate that will inform students’ CVs and will explain to careers services and employers the value of their languages. The scheme runs alongside the award of credits or other HE awards by the HEI concerned. UNILANG is also designed to assist course providers to map their courses onto a transparent and translatable model.
UNILANG is administered through the AULC. UNILANG is also part of the Network for University Language Testing in Europe (NULTE – NULTE- CERCLES) which offers mutual recognition of language learning between participating programmes in the UK, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Poland, Slovakia and Spain).
