French courses

French courses are organised at the House for Foreign Researchers (MCE) for researchers and their family members. There are three sessions per year: one from beginning of October until December, one from January til March and the last one from May until June.


The teachers are all from the 'Institut de Français Langue étrangère de l'Université de Nantes'.

The session can be included in some doctoral programmes, in agreement with the person in charge of your doctoral cursus (please check directly with your Doctoral School).



Each session has three independent levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Classes are no more than 12/13 participants. The lessons are held in the classrooms of the MCE from 6pm til 8pm on weekdays, twice per week.


Next session will start from January 27th at the MCE.

- beginner level : on Monday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 8pm


- intermediate level : on Tuesday and Friday from 6 to 8pm


- advanced level : on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 8pm
