Sufficient familiarity with the French language is mandatory for successful studies or internships in Nice.

You must be able to read, speak, take notes in class, and draft dissertations, practical exercises, and essays in French. We highly recommend that you assess your level of French before you leave. Ideally you should learn French in your home country, then perfect the language during your stay in Paris.

Minimal understanding for the language will be necessary to be admitted to a French higher education establishment, particularly in universities where you must pass a linguistic evaluation test (oral and written understanding).
