  • CIEACOVA May/June tests announced​. More information here.
  • Instructions on how to download CIEACOVA certificates have been published.

The Language Policy Service, in collaboration with other Valencian universities, organises official Catalan language tests (CIEACOVA) to certify levels A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2.

Who can register for the test?

Registration is open only to current members of the university community. Having an e-mail address with the domain or being a member of Alumni does not give individuals who are not employees or current students of the University of Valencia the right to register.

Each official announcement specifies the requirement of being at least 18 years of age before a certain date. Refer to the announcement to know the exact date.

How much does it cost?

The registration fee changes from year to year and it entitles candidates to one attempt. The 2021 fee is €28. UV staff (PDI, PIF and PAS) can apply for grants for official language tests.

In the cases provided for by the legislation in force, candidates are entitled to a reduction in fees or exemption from payment under the terms specified in each official announcement.

What validity do certificates have?

CIEACOVA certificates are equivalent to the language certificates granted by the Valencian Government (Junta Qualificadora de Coneixements de Valencià) and by official language schools and to other official certificates awarded by the Catalan Government, the Government of the Balearic Islands, the Government of Andorra, the Ramon Llull Institute, the University of the Balearic Islands and Catalan universities.

See the Catalan language certificates that are recognised as valid at the University of Valencia.
