Intensive University French Program
A French program to begin your studies at the Université de Montréal
This four-month program provides the ideal conditions to reach the advanced intermediate level of French proficiency, required for admissibility to most of UdeM study programs.
To be admissible to this French program you must:
1. Have sufficient knowledge of French
This intensive French program is exclusively developed for university students whose knowledge of French meets level 6 of the Échelle québécoise des niveaux de compétence en français des personnes immigrantes adultes or level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).
To be admissible, all candidates must provide proof of French knowledge equivalent to level B1.
To this end, they must have attained one of the following:
- level B1 on the TEF Express online test reserved for Université de Montréal candidates.
- between 345 and 600 out of 990 on the TFI or level B1 in listening and reading comprehension on one of the following tests in the 18 months prior to enrolment in the study program.
2. Plan to submit an application to a study program at the Université de Montréal
To register, you first need to target a study program at the Université de Montréal that requires a French proficiency level of B2. If you successfully complete this intensive program, you will not have to take an additional French proficiency test to begin your studies at UdeM. Your attestation will remain valid for 2 years.
