POLICIES ON FRENCH

  • Anyone educated outside of Quebec must pass a French Test before entering a University Program.

  • In case of failure, the candidate must enrol in a French course to upgrade his or her level of French proficiency.

  • These upgrade courses are intended for Francophones and are very difficult for

    Non-Francophones. This is why the Certificate offers French courses tailored to the needs

    of Non-Francophones.
