ITACE

The ITACE is the Interuniversity Test of Academic English. This test was developed by the language centres of four Flemish universities (UGent, KUL, UA en VUB). There are three versions of the test: an ITACE for lecturers, an ITACE for CLIL teachers and an ITACE for students.

  • Would you like to take an ITACE for CLIL teachers? You can find all information on this test on the website of the ITACE for CLIL teachers.
  • Would you like to take an ITACE for students? Carefully read all information on this page below and check the website of the ITACE for students.

If you are a non-native speaker of English and you wish to register for a programme taught in English at Ghent University, you have to prove that you know English well enough, both orally and in writing. This can a.o. be done by passing the ITACE for students. If there are other reasons for requiring a certificate of your English language skills (e.g. studies abroad, internship, emigration, etc.), you can contact the UCT and take the ITACE for students.
