Language proficiency exams are conducted according to standardized criteria and the specifications of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and include an assessment of written comprehension, listening comprehension, written production and oral production.
The Bi- and Trilingualism Service of the Autonomous Province of Bozen-Bolzano recognizes our exams (which includes a assessment of all four language skills) in order to obtain the bilingualism certificate.
For example, if you have passed the unibz German exam at the B1, B2 or C1 level may obtain the bilingualism certificate for the corresponding level by taking the monolingual Italian exam. Conversely, if you have passed the Italian exam you will only have to take the monolingual German exam. You can check on the web pages of the Bi- and Trilingualism Service which other language certifications are recognized.
N.B. the waiting times for taking the bilingualism exam of the Autonomous Province of Bozen-Bolzano can be rather long. If you need to obtain the certificate of bilingualism urgently to take part in a public competition, you can request the exam to be rescheduled to an earlier date.
You can also contact the examination service of the Province by phone to check if there are any last-minute spots.
For information on how to obtain a bilingualism exam and the recognition of unibz language certificates, please contact the Bi- and Trilingualism Examination Service of the Autonomous Province of Bozen-Bolzano.
