Erasmus+ Online Language Support (OLS)

Erasmus+ Online Language Support (OLS)

Most students participating in Erasmus+ student mobility will need to take a language test in Online Language Support (OLS) before they leave.
  • About OLS

    Before you leave, you will need to take a compulsory online language test.

    The language test will assess what level you are at in the language you are going to study in or use in practical training. When you return from the mobility period, you can take a new test and thereby see your development. The test after the mobility period is not compulsory.  

    The languages currently covered in OLS are: English, French, Spanish, German, Bulgarian, Danish, Estonian, Finnish, Greek, Irish, Gaelic, Italian, Croatian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovakian, Slovenian, Swedish, Czech and Hungarian.

    First, you need to register as a user at the EU Academy as follows:

    1. Go to the OLS platform at EU Academy (academy.europa.eu)
    2. Create an account by following the login steps in the video (academy.europa.eu).

    To access the language test, do the following:

    1. In the search field "What do you want to learn today", enter "Placement test".
    2. All available language tests will appear (24 languages). There are filtering options you can use if it is difficult to find the right language test.
    3. Click on the language test to be taken.
    4. Once on the website, press "Enrol" (yellow box on the right)
    5. Then press "Attempt quiz now".
    6. The test takes 10 - 45 minutes.
    7. When you have answered all the questions, press "Finish attempt".
    8. Then you get an overview of the results. The last page shows the language level.

    If you have problems, we recommend that you contact OLS support (academy.europa.eu). You can also check if someone has already asked the same thing and received an answer in the OLS assistance (academy.europa.eu).

    Please note that the European Commission, who owns both the Erasmus+ programme and the OLS, has launched a technical solution that has not yet been fully developed. This means that we unfortunately cannot give you any assistance, and it means that it may take time to get answers to the questions you submit on the link above.
