If you are accepted, you will have one week to either accept or refuse the exchange offer in the application portal.

Your student exchange cannot prolong your graduation. If you are too close to graduation when applying for exchange, your exchange application cannot be accepted: 30 ECTS of studies completed in the student exchange should fit your 210 ECTS degree.
In most of the destinations, the language of tuition is English, but in some institutions, knowledge of the local language is required. Always check the institution-specific language requirements in MoveON portal before filling in the application.
On the application, you are asked to self-evaluate your language skills on the CEFR levels, no other language certificate is required at the application stage. However, you must have the required language skills already at the time of application and must be ready to prove it with a language test after receiving the application results or when applying to your exchange destination. If you cannot prove that you meet the language level that you have self-evaluated, your exchange may be canceled. Therefore, it is important to evaluate your language skills carefully already when sending the application and choose destinations that match your language skills. If your language skills stated on the application do not meet the exchange destinations' requirements, your application to that specific destination cannot be processed.
Note that some exchange destinations might require basic knowledge of some other language than English. If you apply, for example, to a Italian university that requires knowledge of English and Italian, you need to self-evaluate your language skills in both languages for the application. There are plenty of materials online to help you to evaluate your language skills.
