Why is it interesting?

In this training, there are 500 hours of French lessons.
You will have classes 20 hours per week, from Monday to Friday.

You will have to sit exams to obtain a University Diploma.

It is possible to take the DELF at the end of the training.

If you are a beneficiary of international protection or a beneficiary of temporary protection and you are under 35, you can receive financial aid (scholarships based on social requirements or specific annual aid) every month and a place to stay during the training.
If you are on RSA, you can also access the DU in continuing education without funding (free registration fees).

During the course, you'll find out all about university in France: what it's like to be a student, how courses and exams are organised, what qualifications and courses are available, how to take notes during lectures and review your lessons outside lectures, how to give presentations and prepare for exams.

France's higher education system is complex.
