Substitution of studies in the first foreign language

According to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), the beginning skill level for the first foreign language required for a degree must be B2 in English, and B1 in other languages. Language skills required for a degree may be demonstrated by taking a substitute examination.  For Arabic, Japanese, Chinese, Portuguese, Danish, Estonian, the student must first verify that his or her faculty will accept one of these languages as the first foreign language in a degree.
