French as a second language

All students admitted to the Université de Sherbrooke must have a functional knowledge of French that will enable them to take courses at all levels of study. Candidates for admission who have completed their studies in a language other than French may have to take a French proficiency test. Depending on the results, the student may have to take one or more French courses. To help students who do not speak French, The Language Centre of the Department of Letters and Communications of the Université de Sherbrooke offers a micro-program, French as Second Language. This program offers 5 intensive courses in the following areas:
  • Verbal communication
  • Written communication
  • Grammar
  • Language and culture
Courses in the micro-program are free of charge for students who are required to take these courses as a condition of admission to the Université de Sherbrooke.


Some programs require a certain level of English comprehension. For more details, check the Admission et exigences tab on the program's official website page.
