All modules in French

We offer learning opportunities either parallel to or integrated into your study program for the acquisition of language skills required at university and useful in your professional future.

Transparency of study programs and coherence of both learning objectives and levels are ensured through our link with European standards – particularly through our use of the European Language Portfolio for Higher Education.

For more information on our study concept.

Learning a language requires considerable effort and regular work on your part, both inside and outside the classroom. Before registering for a module, make sure that you will have time to do the work required. Remember that if you are placed in a group, you are expected to attend the module regularly and in its entirety.
