Demande d'admission préalable   

For who ? 

New! For 2021, TCF DAP  requirement has been replaced by TCF TP (tout public) with the regular mandatory part and the writing part.  To be valid for DAP, the writting exam is also mandatory.

 The exam must be taken by  February 6  2021. 

Test de Connaissance du Français (TCF ), an official test awarded by the French Ministry of Education, is designed to assess your French competency. Take this test if you do not have the DELF B1 or the DALF (Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française) or advanced diploma in French language, as it is useful for preliminary admission to undergraduate university studies and school of Architecture in France.

If I want to submit an application for licence 2, licence 3, master 1, master 2, business school or college, you do not have to take the TCF for DAP, but you have to take the TCF (or   hold the DELF B2 , DALF C1 or DALF C2). In this case, you must apply for the TCF compulsory examinations (listening, language structures and reading). Depending on the establishment, it may require you to  take the optional TCF writing examination and possibly the speaking examination.

Please always contact EACH school you wish to apply to in advance and check their requirements.  We will not contact them for you. 

How is it composed?

Compulsory examinations

Be careful! Your  writing examination will not be marked if one or both of the exercises are not completed, if the minimum number of words for each exercise has not been followed, if one or both of the exercises are off-topic.
