EXAMS

Students who have regularly attended at least one session of French language courses (in the current year) can register for an exam to obtain a language diploma:

- Certificate Examination B2-C1

If they pass, they will be awarded a language diploma, certifying their level in French: A2, B1, B2 or C1.
