French – Intensive modules

For: Incoming exchange students / incoming master students / incoming Swiss German and Swiss Italian students

The Language Centre offers intensive modules in French, intended exclusively for exchange or master students (the persons concerned have received a separate email about this) and for Swiss German and Swiss Italian students.

These courses take place before the beginning of the academic year so that you may prepare yourself under the best possible conditions in a French-speaking environment.

  • Select “Register online”.
  • Identify yourself with your user name and password which you received from the EPFL for your email**.
  • If you are a real beginner (without any knowledge), it is not necessary to do the placement and written tests.  If this is the case for you, click on “Next”.
  • If you are not a beginner, carefully complete every part of the process, do not use any support for the tests (placement and written test) as the aim is to know your level. Please note: the placement test consists of 3 sections.
  • Validate your pre-registration.

Groups are formed according to level. You will receive confirmation and all necessary information by email.

If you have any queries, please contact the Language Centre at: centredelangues@epfl.ch

**Remark: In principle, wait to receive your EPFL email (= your Gaspar ID) before registering for a course.

You will receive all the emails of the Language Centre on your EPFL account.
