Is the expression of interest a definitive registration?
No, it is not. It is a registration required to quantify the total number of people interested in the project.
So, how am I supposed to complete my registration?
With the FULL REGISTRATION (effective registration for the test):
after expressing your interest, you will receive a link to the address you entered in the expression of interest form to enter your complete data in another form. You will also receive information about the enrolment fee.
You will receive this email containing the link after your expression of interest deadline.
Example: if your expression of interest deadline is “02/28/2021 h.12:00”, then you will receive the link to the address you entered in the expression of interest form in the days following the 02/28/2021.

How do I get my certification?

I am a student enrolled in the academic year 2019/2020 and so part of the UNICA-CLA English language Project. Can I take the Language Skills Assessment Test?
Yes, you can. However, we suggest you to use this service only as a last option, and only after having verified the possibilities available within the UNICA-CLA English language project in terms of Courses and exams offered free of charge.

If I take the Language Skills Assessment Test, how many attempts do I have?
We inform you that students have a maximum of 3 attempts FOR EACH LEVEL (not per academic year or calendar year) which they can make with their Faculty through Mock test.
Exhausted attempts, they could take the test again skipping a turn (they could not take the test immediately following), in order to achieve adequate preparation.
When I enter my credentials, I get a message that says the account must be added to the directory in order to enter the app.
You need to contact the help desk writing to: email@example.com to report the problem.
If I do not take the test, can I take it again or ask for a refund?
You cannot use the paid fee again in subsequent sessions, but you can ask for a refund if the test was not taken in full.
If the test had been taken even partially (only computer-based test completed), the fee shall NOT be refundable.
You can make a refund request by contacting the University of Cagliari Language Centre Administration (firstname.lastname@example.org) which will provide you with all the helpful information and the necessary documentation.
