Specific information regarding language requirements can be found on the academic offer of the University of Granada
http://internacional.ugr.es/pages/movilidad/estudiantes/entrantes/academicofferugr20111109
Official language proficiency certificates:

In the light of regional legislation, university regulations and recommendations from the European Commission, incoming Erasmus Mundus Action 2 applicants and scholarship holders to the University of Granada are subject to the following conditions regarding their language proficiency.

It is mandatory for undergraduate and master students who apply to the Erasmus Mundus Accion 2 programme to submit a Language Proficiency Certificate (minimum level B1 of the language of instruction) issued by any of the institutions listed in the file:
http://internacional.ugr.es/pages/promocion_ling/
tablasdecertificadosaceptadosporlaugrparaacreditaciondelenguasextranjeras

If an official language proficiency certificate issued by one of the organizations mentioned in the list of organizations recognized by our university cannot be provided before the deadline of the call for applications, potential applicants may submit other certificates that indicate a sufficient level of language competence.

The language proficiency should be expressed in terms of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages regarding speaking, writing, listening and reading. These certificates will be examined by the university-wide committee for language accreditation, and those meeting the international standards applied in the table mentioned above will be accepted. Notwithstanding, the Universidad de Granada reserves the right to accept or refuse any non-official language proficiency certificate which does not guarantee those standards on an individual basis during the application and evaluation phase.

Undergraduate and master students pre-selected for a scholarship MUST provide an official language proficiency certificate before they can receive an invitation letter for their stay at the Universidad de Granada.

If candidates cannot provide one of the official certificates accepted for Spanish language, they MUST take the UGR official Spanish examination (organised by the Centro de Lenguas Modernas of UGR), which will be sent to partner universities so students do not have to travel. The examination, which will take place around end of May or first fortnight of June, will be divided into two parts: (a) a written part supervised by a responsible person from the home institution and (b) a spoken part done through skype. The exam has to be supervised by a professor or a responsible person from the students’ home university. Students passing the examination may receive an official accreditation certificate from the Modern Languages Centre of the University of Granada, on payment of the corresponding fees.

In order to send the examination to your institution, it is necessary for you to sign a confidentiality agreement, which is a guarantee for the UGR that the exam will be taken in regular conditions, supervised by a member of the academic staff at your university, and not disclosed either before or after the examination date. Only those students who provide an Official Language Proficiency Certificate or pass the exam organised by the UGR, may be admitted at our university.
