Language requirements

Candidates need to demonstrate a very good level of English (at least a C1 in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for Languages) and an elementary level of French (at least an A1 in accordance with CEFR) in terms of both oral and written comprehension and expression, which can be proven. French and English language levels are monitored during selection interviews and candidates should, when possible, supply recognised certificates or recommendation letters from language teachers showing language levels in relation to the Common European Framework for Reference (CEFR) and TOEFL Equivalency Table (TOEIC, TOEFL-IELTS Score Comparison Chart).

Students whose first language is English or French or have studied at university in English or French for at least one full academic year are exempt from having to prove their fluency in these languages. (French and English language levels are also monitored during the selection interviews). Students with no prior knowledge of the French language might still be considered as eligible candidates if their application is excellent, on the condition that they will achieve at least an elementary knowledge of French (A1) before the start of the academic year. Knowledge of any other language is considered to be an asset.

Students who do not yet possess an A1+/A2 level of French, will be required to follow an intensive French course during the introductory course period.
