The study programme complies with all the standards specific to the linguistic field: The European Portofolio of Languages (The Council of Europe, 2000), The Common European Framework for Languages (2000) etc. When it was first set up in Romania, by Babes Bolyai University in Cluj (1994), the study programme benefited from the support of European study programmes, being very successful among the applicants.

During the 2014-2017 period the study programme was subsidised through a project granted by  The International Association of Applied Modern Languages.
