In order to begin studying in the Certificate of Proficiency – French for Professional Communication, all new students (except for the beginners level) are required to take the Entrance Placement Test (EPT). Test results are used to evaluate the student’s current level of proficiency in our program structure. Students can take the test only once per session and the results are valid for one year.

Topics Covered

The test takes 1 hour and 40 min to complete and consists of four sections:

Listening comprehension



Reading Comprehension

Learning Outcomes

Your test result will be ready 1 business day following the end of the placement test period.  When it is ready, we will notify you by email and provide you with instructions on how to retrieve your test result. Information about course registration will be sent by email.

On the first day of classes, the course lecturer confirms the student’s placement and may recommend a transfer to another level in certain cases. In each case, the final decision for a transfer is made by the course lecturer and the administration.


Please note that course registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Taking the placement test does not guarantee a space in a course.

Please note that all fees are non-refundable. Before submitting your registration, please double check the date you have chosen as test dates are fixed and final. If you cannot attend the date you registered for, you must register for a new test date and make another payment.
