French language and culture

Courses are organised by the CIREFE (Centre international rennais d'études du français pour étrangers). They cover all levels from A1 to C2 of the CERF (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). You'll be tested on-line before the start of the course and on successful completion of the course, you'll gain ECTS credits, awarded by your home university.

There are around 15 participants per group, and groups are organised according to levels. Courses last 3 weeks (21 hours per week) and are open to anyone over 18 years old.

Information about the 2017 Summer programme can be found here.

French language courses are also available for international students throughout the academic year.
