Admissions in the framework of an exchange programme
The Faculty of Arts, Languages, Art and Humanities (FLLASH) offers French language and civilization courses to all international students enrolled at the UVHC. These courses enable students to improve their level of French as a foreign language and facilitate their university studies and integration in France. There are different levels of French as a foreign language.
Students can, at the same time, prepare for the national DELF (Diplôme d’Etudes de Langue Francaise) and DALF exams (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Francaise) of the “Ministère de l’Education Nationale”. Following a test, students are divided into groups (A, B, C) depending on their level. Students move from one group to another as they progress.
