6. Learn French (CUEFEE & CRL)

French language & culture courses at the CUEFEE

You can complete your learning agreement with courses of French, offered by our University Center of French Teaching for Foreign Students (CUEFEE). You can choose up to 3 courses.

If validated, each course will give you 4 ECTS as follows:

  • Written language (24h/ semester), 4 ECTS credits
  • Oral language (24h/ semester), 4 ECTS credits
  • Cultural options (20h/ semester), 4 ECTS credits (level B1 minimum required)

These courses are free for exchange students.

/!\ Students with a level of French above C1 will not be able to register for CUEFEE courses.

If you wish to take courses at CUEFEE, you will need to indicate this during a step on your online pre-registration on Mobility Online. Upon your arrival, you will be required to pass a French language proficiency test that will allow you to be referred to an appropriate level group.

Registration for the placement test will only be possible during your appointment at the International Relations Office for the final administrative registration at the university.

The dates for the placement tests will be given to you during your final registration upon your arrival.
