Proficiency in French – Nimes


Before you leave: assessment of your proficiency level

 A sound command of the French language is compulsory for students wishing to enrol on a university course: applicants wishing to study at the University of Nîmes must have attained B2 level.

All applications, therefore, must include proof of the level attained in the Test de Connaissance du Français (TCF - French Proficiency Test).


UNÎMES organises an annual TCF DAP language proficiency exam session.

This will take place on 21 February 2018.


For other exam dates, please contact the CIEP.

When you arrive: French courses


The University of Nîmes organises French courses for international students.

  • At undergraduate year 1 level, these courses are organised as part of the “Maîtrise de la Langue Française” elective course
  • These courses are also available to other students: please speak to your international mobility contact to add them to your programme of study.
