Language of studies

a. Romanian
Candidates who do not speak Romanian language can apply for studies into Romanian provided they take a preparatory language course one year before enrolment. At the end of the preparatory year, the candidates will acquire a Romanian language certificate. In case the candidate already has knowledge of Romanian language, they can sit in for the Romanian language test at the Faculty of Letters which issues a language certificate. Romanian language certificates will be accepted only from Romanian universities accredited to issue such certificates.

The candidates submitting Romanian diplomas and certificates, or documents attesting studies pursued in Romanian for at least four consecutive years in a pre-university unit or three consecutive years in a Romanian accredited higher education institution are exempt from taking the Romanian language test

As of this year, candidates can apply for a Romanian language preparatory year at the University of Oradea.

b. English
Candidates choosing specialisations in English have to submit one of the following documents: internationally acknowledged English certificate, proof that they pursued prior studies in English, proof that the candidate is a national of a country where English is an official language, or an English certificate issued by the Faculty of Letters (University of Oradea).
