External exams

Students who wish to do so can enter for the UCLES exams, which are held three times a year in Figueres and Girona. These diplomas are a great asset at university and in the world of business.

Certificates are awarded at the following levels of the Common European Framework:

Key English Test (K.E.T.): level A2
Preliminary English Test (P.E.T.): level B1
First Certificate (F.C.E.): level B2
Advanced (C.A.E.): level C1
Proficiency (C.P.E.): level C2

English Empordà is officially recognised by Cambridge University as a Preparation Centre for these exams, and some of our teachers have trained to be official examiners. Over the years the school has had a consistently good pass-rate at all of the levels.
