Learning French, English or others languages
The Language Department of the Faculty of Sciences in Orsay offers courses in French as a Foreign Language (FLE) to international students who want to study at University Paris-Sud.
The University also organises a University Diploma in French as a Foreign Language (DU de FLE) for students pre-selected for Master’s courses at University Paris-Sud but whose French is below the required level. Students can learn and practice French over the course of a year (570 teaching hours) before starting a scientific degree.
To be able to join the diploma programme you must first have a conditional offer for inclusion in a Bachelor 's or Master’s programme at Paris-Sud for the following year and must have a minimum level of A2 in French.
