Teaching Council

Updated: 14.02.2022

The School frequently receives requests from former students who are in the process of applying to the Teaching Council. While documentation is easily attainable for students who have started studying in UCD after 2007, official documentation and letters from before 2007 can be more difficult to access. 

Common request by applicants include the following:  

  • confirmation of achieving a minimum level of B2.2 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (or equivalent)
  • syllabus/module descriptors and reading lists
  • official transcripts listing module breakdown and individual grades

Below we have listed how and where individual information can be accessed. Please note: The School cannot confirm CEFR levels for students who have started in UCD prior to 2007.  At that date, the then language departments at UCD did not reference the Common European Framework of Reference for language teaching.

In cases where students have started in UCD prior to 2007 we recommend that applicants provide certification of successful completion of an independent language competency test as approved by the Teaching Council. These tests can be acquired in the following locations:
