Language Requirements

The official language of Romania is Romanian. There are many other recognised minority languages, including French, German and Polish, to name just a few.

It is very common for university courses to be offered in more than one language. The most popular study languages are Romanian, English, German, French and Hungarian. If you wish to study in a non-native language, you will need to provide evidence of your language proficiency. If you do not meet the required standards, you may be able to take a language course to help you improve.

Even if you are able to study in English, you should make an effort to learn as much Romanian as possible. As well as picking up Romanian, you are presented with a fantastic opportunity to learn several other languages. Communicating with locals and other students is the perfect way to practice. This is a skill that will look great on your CV/resume!
