Since all the bachelor’s degrees on offer, except for the bachelor in Physics, are offered in French, students must be fluent and competent in their use of the primary language of instruction. Students who are not comfortable with the French language can attend a one year Intensive French course, known as the Français Langue Etrangère (or French as a Foreign Language) (FLE), to improve their language to the necessary academic level before joining their chosen program.
