EEEA Pre-College Program


The Pre-College Program is a university bridge program designed for prospective students, typically recent graduates of high school. It is made for foreign students who need to study French through an intensive program and to pass the DELFB2 exam. Unlike other language schools, students can take introductory courses in computer science, business administration, or fine arts, as well as general education courses after passing the French B1 level test. If a student chooses to enter the EEEA undergraduate program after completing this pre-college program, the credits taken will be counted and can be transferred to the undergraduate program.


Both former and recent high school graduates can apply to enter the pre-college program. The EEEA Admissions Committee will make a selection based on the student's motivation, grades, application, and language proficiency.


The Pre-College Program is a trimester program, with a fall trimester, a spring trimester and a summer school. The fall trimester starts from September and ends in December, and the spring trimester starts in January of the following year and ends in April. Each trimester lasts 15 weeks, while the summer trimester is from May to June, with an optional 10-week intensive exam preparation course. The summer vacation runs from July to August.
