Undergraduate Medical Education - French Language Testing offered by McGill's School of Continuing Studies.

Test results are used to evaluate a student’s current level of language proficiency and are also provided to the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences*. Note that students may only take the test once per year and results are only valid for 6 months.

*We would like to remind test-takers that all applicants to the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences are subject to the Faculty Code of Conduct, which includes academic integrity.

While Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences students are not required to register for any subsequent School of Continuing Studies' language courses, they are welcome to do so should they wish to improve their level of French.
