CLAD (Certification de compétence linguistique dans le domaine académique disciplinaire) is a free certification programme offered to students in English, German, Italian, Spanish, and French as a Foreign Language, to demonstrate that they have a C1 in their chosen programme when they finish their BA. This certification is particularly useful for students who wish to go to HEP to become an English teacher and who do have other certification but all are welcome to enrol.

Students can only enrol in this programme in the four weeks of their first year of studies (i.e. the deadline to sign up for courses). If you are interested in the CLAD programme, you should review the information on the CLAD webpage.

There will be two information presentations about CLAD, which you should attend to learn more about the requirements of the certification:

(1) A general information session about CLAD conducted by Victoria Beguelin-Argimon on Wednesday 3 October 2019 at 18:00 in Anthropole 2106.

(2) An information session specifically for English students conducted by Sara Lynch on Thursday 10 October 2019 at 12:00 in Anthropole 5021 (feel free to bring your lunch).

If you are unable to attend these session, or if you have questions about the English department requirements for CLAD, please contact Andrew Reilly.
