Higher Education – Pathway Programmes in France
French in Normandy will prepare you for your future studies and life, either here in France or back at home. Our pathway programmes offer progression routes at a number of destinations at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Upon successful completion of our pathway programmes, you will be able offered a place on the relevant vocational or academic programme with our partner organisations*.
*(If you have met the relevant entrance requirements and you have submitted an application which has been accepted by the partner institution).
Normandy is the perfect place to continue your studies. We are sure that you will be able to find an undergraduate or post-graduate course on one of the international programmes offered by local Higher Education Institutions here in Rouen to suit you.
Our partner schools in Rouen offer a wide selection of courses at undergraduate and post-graduate level which are delivered in either French or English or we can offer a selection of modules that are only delivered in English. French in Normandy can also help you apply to other Universities and Schools throughout France.
The minimum language level required to study in a French university is a B2 but we recommend that you reach a C1 level as this will prepare you better for study at undergraduate or graduate level. For vocational schools the required level is B2.
To start on a pathway programme you should contact us with an updated CV, your degrees and/or transcripts and your desired field of study and the level (Vocational/Postgraduate/Undergraduate etc). You should also tell us about your French language level and the dates that you hope to study. We pass your dossier to the appropriate institution who will contact you. Some interviews may take place by skype.
A typical time-line would be:
September-January Year 1 : Start French language course to reach B2/C1 level. Diploma exams are available every month from February to August.
January/February Year 2: Complete your application
June, July, August: Sit the DELF DALF exam
September Year 2: Enter the partner institution
