French test for international students

A minimum B2 level in French, certified by a test recognised by Grenoble IAE - INP, is required for international students to access programs taught in French.

How do you prove your level of French?

Non-French students applying for bachelor's and master's degree programs (full-time student, work-study and Executive Education) taught in French (see below for the list of programs concerned) must present a certificate attesting to their B2 level in French for admission.
To be admissible, the test must have been taken within the 2 years preceding the application for admission on 1st January of the year in question. If you have obtained a diploma in French (DELF, DALF or DUEF), it is recognised and valid for an unlimited period.
The test result must be submitted with all the documents before the application deadline. A test registration certificate is not acceptable. Grenoble IAE - INP does not organise certification sessions. For more information on the language certifications offered by Université Grenoble Alpes, please contact the Language service.
