How to apply to colleges offering Science & Maths in France
The application procedure for universities in France starts in December for non-Europeans and follows a very strict calendar. In February, non-French speakers will be invited to take a French language test (TCF = test de connaissance du français) which is the equivalent of the English TOEFL/IELTS. A good level in French B High (between 5 and 6 on the IB scale) is sufficient. The written expression counts more than the oral performance. Also, students need to provide their portfolio if asked by the college/university.
