University students stuck over English

ONE fifth of students who have finished their studies at the University of Malaga have not been able to graduate, due to a lack of skills in a second language.

New guidelines brought in during the 2010-2011 academic year stated that, in order to complete their degree, students must reach an adequate level in a second language that would enable them to get by abroad.

This caused problems for many students, who arrived at university with hardly any knowledge of a second language and put off that part of their studies, only to find they were unable to receive their degrees.

More than 1,000 students sat exams for level B1 in English, French, German or Italian and level B2 for English and French last month, and are hoping to have achieved results that will allow their degrees to be issued.
