One of the major changes to this year’s AD5 competition is the two-part registration process. Part 1 will only require you to confirm your eligibility to participate in this competition, as well as pick a MINIMUM OF TWO official EU languages in which your knowledge is at B2 level or above. Not too complicated :)

At this stage, you do not need to pick an official Language 1 or Language 2 – that will happen in Part 2 of the application process. However, the languages that you list now will determine which languages you will be able to select from in the next stage.

Two very important things to keep in mind…

  • ​How Language 1 and 2 are determined. Your Language 1 may be any of the 24 official EU languages, while your Language 2 must be picked from the 5 languages (eventually) announced by EPSO after reviewing the languages most frequently declared by candidate in PART 1 of the application process.
  • Be very careful which languages you declare in PART 1 of the application process!  If you did not declare in your initial application at least one of the top 5 languages that EPSO will announce after reviewing these initial applications, YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED FROM THE COMPETITION!
    • Based on previous competitions and the institution’s requirements, we predict that English and French are probably safe bets, with German, Spanish and Italian most likely ranking high on the listing. But until EPSO officially announces the top 5 languages, no one will know with 100% certainty.
