Each prospective outgoing student has to submit an official proof of knowledge of the language taught or being used at the host institution and fulfil its linguistic requirements so that his/her application can be finalised by the RIRO. RIRO encourages candidate outgoing students to use the Erasmus+ Online Linguistic Support (OLS) platform, to strengthen their language skills.
TSCC supports the study of foreign languages. The Programme of Study includes obligatory courses of foreign languages; which students have to attend in order to improve their linguistic skills. Two different modules exist: English and French for Theological study purposes (upon choice). Students in Cyprus have the opportunity to start learning English, from an early age, at Primary Education level, and French from the age of Secondary Education.
It is aimed that the linguistic skills acquired at T.S.C.C.’s will give students the possibility to communicate in one of the above foreign languages, without difficulty, and be able to research relevant bibliography.
