French classes

It is essential to have a good level of French to be able to follow the courses at the École Normale Supérieure de Rennes: level B2 of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) is required for every incoming foreign student.
If your application file is excellent but your French level is weak, ENS Rennes organises a summer school offering French language classes.
The Centre for International Mobility (CMI) of Rennes, in partnership with the Rennes International Centre of French Studies for Foreigners (CIREFE), provides French language classes for international researchers and PhD students. To determine the level of the participants and divide them into several groups, an evaluation test is given at the CIREFE.
Based on the results, the participants join the various regular CIREFE classes.

The sessions take place as follows:

The classes take place twice weekly, from Monday to Thursday from 6:15 pm to 8:15 pm in the CIREFE premises (Villejean campus).
Registration costs for the classes are €150, of which :
  • 75 € is paid by the CMI Rennes,
  • 75 € by participant
