This website is dedicated to the candidates who would like to study at the University of Burgundy outside of a short term exchange programme and are of a foreign nationality.

This website provides instructions on how to apply to all of our programmes, at all levels and for both English and French taught programmes. Because of this, you may find some documents which have only been published in French as they are relevant to those applying for French taught programmes only.

French language test


The majority of courses at the University of Burgundy are given in French. This means it is necessary for each candidate to have a good level of French:

  • C1 level is required for the study programmes in Law, Administration (AES), Economics / Business / Management and Biological and environmental sciences (Sciences de la Vie, de la Terre et de l'Environnement - UFR SVTE). C1 level is also recommended (but not required) for all social sciences and humanities;
  • B2 level is required for all other study programmes (social sciences and humanities included).


We only accept the tests TCF, DELF or DALF. Some tests can have mandatory and additional exercises. We only require the mandatory exercises.

For those candidates OUTSIDE of the European Union, European Economic Areas and the Swiss confederation and who would like to register in Licence 1 (first year studies) should present the special French language test called TCF DAP (except in the cases mentioned below). You will find more information about TCF DAP at the International Centre for pedagogical studies website and in our article Submit your application for TCF DAP.

If you do not have the required French language test you can find all information about passing the test at the International Centre for pedagogical studies website.

Certain applicants are exempt from the French language test. If any of the following options apply there is no requirement to show any French language certificates:

  • Nationals of countries which French is exclusively the official language, as well as applicants living in those countries where they have received and been awarded their final secondary school leaving certificate.
  • For countries where French is not the only official language, only those applicants who have completed their secondary school level education at a French speaking institution.
  • Applicants from Mauritius who are in possession of a baccalaureate with merit bilingual.
  • Applicants from institutions including French bilingual departments displayed on the list of French ministry or on the Le fil du biLingue website.
  • Applicants, who have obtained the Test d'Evaluation du Français (TEF), organised by the Chamber of Commerce and the Industry of Paris (Chambre du Commerce et de l'Industrie de Paris) with at least 14/20 in the level of written expression.
  • These same rules of exemption of French Language Level Test equally apply to the students outside of the European Union, European Economic Area and the Swiss Confederation who would like to apply for Licence 1 (First year studies) who should show us TCF DAP. These candidates are equally exempt from TCF DAP if they already hold a DELF or DALF qualification with the required level.


English Knowledge Level Test

Candidates who wish to pursue a study program taught in English are not required to have an English language test done in advance except candidates who want to apply for master in Advanced Electronic Systems Engineering where the B2 level is required. Only the official tests issued by national or international instances will be accepted.

Candidates who want to apply for all other English taught programmes: if you have already acquired a certificate with your English level please include it with your application. If you do not have any official proof of language level you must demonstrate your English skills in your application, evidence showing that you are somewhat able to express yourself in the language for example Report cards from Secondary school and or University, Language school Certificate, evidence of courses taken in English...
