  • Level of French Recommended: intermediate to advanced
    As most of the FCP courses are taught in French (more than 60%), this program is ideal for students from French Immersion and Francophone programs. However, we do accept students who have completed Core French and who are ready to meet the challenge of studying in both of Canada's official languages at university. The intermediate level corresponds approximately to the B1 level of the DELF certification. Consult the table describing the levels of competence to learn more: DELF-DALF
