Students from outside the European Union

In order to complete a successful course in France, without belonging to the European Union, it is necessary to go through a regulated process. Students who do not reside in the European Union must apply for admission to the Cooperation and Cultural Action Department of the French Embassy. The application must be made between October and January, before the current year of study.

Est-il nécessaire de parler français pour étudier en France ?

In Paris, in order to study in an institution of higher learning, non-French speaking students must undergo the TCF DAP procedure (test de connaissance du français pour demande d’admission préalable). It is an approved language assessment test, available on the Internet or through various organizations, including tests of oral and written comprehension. It takes place at the CIEP (Centre international d’études pédagogiques) and validates one’s ability to follow courses in French.

Quel niveau de français est-il conseillé d’avoir pour venir étudier en France ?

France is the first French-speaking country to welcome the most foreign students. Its attractiveness is great but the candidates who come to try their luck must have a minimum level B2 to follow their training. It is therefore necessary to assess his or her language level.
