School of French as a Foreign Language
The School of French as a Foreign Language (Ecole de français langue étrangère) is affiliated to the Faculty of Arts. It offers full-time courses, or complementary courses on French language and culture and that of the French-speaking world during the autumn and spring semesters.
Complete degree courses allow the student either:
- to integrate a basic discipline of French as a Foreign Language in a Bachelor of Arts degree in order to develop a broad and systematic expertise in French, with in-depth reflection on the language and how it is taught, or;
- to specialise solely in French as a Foreign Language while preparing for the Diploma in French as a Foreign Language.
