The program officially begins on Monday, June 28th at 8:00 am. All students are required to attend a general assembly as it includes vital information for your success in the program.
All students will be sent a link to an online French Language Assessment that must be completed a minimum of two weeks prior to start of the program. Students will then complete the assessment with an oral interview via phone or Zoom. Students will be divided into levels from beginner to advanced based on the combined test results.
No, this year La Maison Française will be 100% remote using the Online Hybrid delivery model so participants are welcome to join from anywhere!
Upon successful completion of the program, you will receive a Certificate of Completion. Although this is a non-credit program, some institutions may elect to grant credit to their students who have completed La Maison Française at the University of Victoria.
Please contact your current educational institutions Transfer Credit Office for more information.
