Who can register for the test

Registration is open only to active members of the university community for the January call. Having an e-mail address with the domain or being a member of Alumni does NOT give individuals the right to register.

Please refer to the official announcement of the exam for more information.


The registration fee of the January call changes from year to year and it entitles candidates to one attempt. UV staff (PDI, PI and PTGAS) can apply for grants for official language tests.

Please refer to the official announcement of the exam to find out the registration fees and the criteria for fee reduction or exemption provided for in current legislation.


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.
