French courses and level tests / Incoming exchange student
At the University of Liège courses are in most cases taught in French. Exchange students therefore need to have suﬀicient profciency of the language, both written and oral, to understand courses and to take part eﬀectively in seminars and practicals.
Therefore we ask students who follow courses given in French to join to their application form a document testifying their level of French. The minimal required level is B1 (B2 for HEC Liège - Management School) according to the Common European Framework of Reference.
Next to this proof of language, at their arrival, non French-speaking students who take courses in French have to take a compulsory test in French to attest their profciency. The results are sent to departmental coordinators.
Dates for the French tests:
• for the 1st term: from 23rd to 25th September 2019
• for the 2nd term: from 3rd to 5th February 2020
In Liège, French preparatory courses (before the beginning of the 1st term) and French courses (during the academic year) are organised by the “Département de français de l’Institut supérieur des Langues Vivantes (ISLV)”.
1st term preparatory course: from 2nd to 11th September 2019 (no ECTS); 100€ charge for exchange students
For students who would like to follow a French course during the evening in Liège, the compulsory test will be used to evaluate their level in order to create the groups for the courses.
