Language Skills and French Courses


Most Université Laval courses are taught exclusively in French.

To attend Université Laval, your French language skills must correspond to at least a 750 score on the Test de Français International (TFI) or a B2 level on the Common European Framework of Reference scale. Our language school offers courses that can help you improve your French to meet UL language requirements. As an exchange student you won't have to pay the tuition fees, but only course extra fees.

Université Laval cannot guarantee exchange program participants access to foreign language courses other than French. All language classes have limited enrolment. Upon arriving on campus, you will also need to pass a placement test before registering.
