In Esisar, the language of instruction is French. However, some Industrial projects may be carried out in English. See Industrial projects for more information.
Since 2001, France uses the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL), established by the Council of Europe. Within this Framework, exchange students should have a level of French of at least A2 (level C2 being the top level). That means you have to know enough French to make yourself understood, understand what your tutors are saying, and take exams.
Foreign graduating students should have a level of French of at least B2. That means that you can understand technical discussions in your field of specialization. You can produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue.
The MISTRE Master is entirely taught in English: no French language requirements for foreign students.
The courses will begin with French level test. This test is not an exam, it only evaluates your language skills and chooses the right level group for you.
If you wish, you can take intensive French courses in Grenoble. These courses are taught by the CUEF (Center Universitaire d'Etudes Françaises). You can register directly on their website. Do not hesitate to contact us if you need help for applying.
Registration and accommodation fees for this intensive month are at your own expense.
If you register, please inform Esisar’s International Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
