2019-20 FLEX Testing Information


Initial FLEX testing for the 2019-20 academic year has been completed in all countries except Greece. Information about applying for the 2020-21 academic year will be posted on this site beginning in September 2019.

FLEX testing for the 2019-20 academic year is still open for Greece. Interested candidates from Greece who meet the eligibility requirements are invited to com­plete a preliminary online application located here.  A selection com­mittee will evaluate online applications, and select semifinalists in late winter 2019.

All candidates must successfully complete the first rounds of the competition before they are invited to the semifinalist round.  At the semifinalist stage, students and their parents are invited to attend an informational meeting to learn more about the program. Students then take part in an individual interview with American Councils staff, take a standardized test of English, write another set of proctored essays, and receive the official program application. Please see the FLEX brochure below for more information.
