Examination for the Certificate of Proficiency in English (ECPE)
In 1957, the University of Michigan designated the Hellenic American Union as the official representative in Greece for the Examination for the Certificate of Proficiency in English (ECPE). Since then, the Hellenic American Union has been administering the examination not only in Greece but also in many other countries.
The Certificate of Proficiency (ECPE) constitutes an official certification of knowledge of the English language at the C2 level, as outlined by the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).It is awarded by the University of Michigan, one of the leading U.S. Universities in the field of linguistic research, with lengthy experience in establishing and developing a broad range of English language examinations.
The ECPE is officially recognized in Greece by the state (Supreme Council for Civil Personnel Selection) and the private sector as a C2 level certification of English language competence. It is also recognized in several countries and can be used for academic and professional purposes. For more information concerning the validity of the ECPE for academic purposes, its holders should address the academic institutions to which they intend to submit it. ECPE holders can obtain the corresponding proficiency certification (“eparkeia”) from the Greek Ministry of Education, Lifelong Learning and Religious Affairs.
