University of Salamanca, through its Cursos Internacionales, is part of the KOBALT group, along with the University of Cambridge, the Alliance Français and the Goethe Institut. It was the KOBALT group who worked on the development of the BULATS tests. Furthermore, Cursos Internacionales is BULATS Agent and Test Administrator, so it is approved to commercialize tests in the four available languages: English, French, German and Spanish.
Within the language field, the working group Plataforma de Acreditación Universitaria selected BULATS as the language accreditation system for University students. In this respect, the Conference of Spanish University Rectors (CRUE) and Cursos Internacionales have signed an agreement, and Cursos Internacionales is responsible for providing BULATS test materials.
BULATS is a multilingual suite of tests which provides an easy, quick, reliable and economical assessment of students or professionals’ language proficiency at the workplace. BULATS results are expressed as levels on the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
