EMiLA students visit the regular courses both at home and at the host institutions. EMiLA addresses cultural diversity and different landscape traditions by not transforming all modules into English, which would otherwise result in a loss of depth. Instead, a certain language proficiency will be required of the students in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (CEFR) before they can go to the countries where they want to study.

Students are asked to supply proof of English skills and, if you want to study at a university/school which teaches in another language, a minimum level of knowledge of this language has to be demonstrated, too. The University of Edinburgh and the Academie van Bouwkunst Amsterdam teach in English, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, École nationale supérieure du paysage Versailles/Marseille and the Leibniz Universität Hannover each teach in their national language. The two EMiLA modules (eLearning and the Summer School) are taught in English.

Each partner has language requirements for home and visiting students, which indicate the level of language competency needed for studying at their school. Please read the course handbook to learn more!
