Admission to a Dual Degree Programme: language requirements

Language requirements depend on the programme you are applying for. You must attach your test results directly to your online application.


For the dual degree programmes, we have to receive your application form and your language tests before the closing date indicated for each programme. Applications which do not include the language test results by the given deadline will be considered incomplete and will not be processed.

Bear in mind that it may take two to three months to get the results after having enrolled for a test (plus around 10 days to receive them). Make sure to enrol on time in order to respect the deadline. You must indicate the date in which you will/have pass(ed) the test.

Important information

Please check the list of test exemptions.

Please note that test results are valid for two years, except Cambridge proficiency certificates which have unlimited validity. Tests must be valid on the deadline of the programme you are applying for.

The language level requirements differ from one programme to another. If you are applying to two programmes you must meet the highest level required.

Our institution code for receiving your TOEFL score reports is 0695. Even if you have your score reports sent directly to us, please attach a copy to the application form as soon as you receive them. We only accept TOEFL IBT.

TCF 500 : Compulsory and optional parts required : 500 points with no sub-score below 14/20 for the optional parts. For more information on the TCF (Test de Connaissance du Français).
