French as a Foreign Language
Before coming to study in France, it’s important to have a sufficient level in French, (written and oral). For university-level courses in the Faculty of Arts & Humanities or the Faculty of Science & Engineering, the French fluency requirement is generally B2 or higher, based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). Please contact the relevant faculty directly for the French fluency requirement on the academic program to which you would like to apply. However, please note that at the Faculty of Medicine, the CEFRL C1 level in French is required for all degree programs.
International students enrolled at Sorbonne University and international staff who need linguistic assistance can enroll in our French classes. These courses take place on campus and are appropriate to the student schedules. French classes over the academic year are available: between 2 hours and 6 hours each week during one semester or both, according to the student’s initial level (estimated by a compulsory online placement test).
Courses are free for bachelor and master students enrolled at Sorbonne University.
