RSM accepts English course/test results at C1.1 level (CEFR) taken at any accredited university of applied science or research university within the EU/EEA. All aspects of the language must have been included in the test (reading, writing, listening and speaking skills).


You must be able to provide proof of this in your application. Accepted forms of proof are:

  • a course certificate clearly indicating the the obtained level
  • an official statement, filled in and signed by your university (you can also have your university fill in the RSM provided English Proficiency form)


The Language & Training Centre (LTC) of Erasmus University, Rotterdam offers intake tests throughout the year, which will determine your current level of proficiency, as well as English courses from September onwards.


What is not accepted as proof:

Online tests, such as the OLS (Online Linguistics Support for Erasmus+) or Oxford Online Placement test are not accepted.


If you are a current RSM BA student and during the academic year 2020-2021 completed the APTIS English test as a part of the course Professionele Ontwikkeling II (POII), please be aware that this test is not valid proof when applying for a MSc programme at RSM, because at the time the test was not proctored.
