Thank you for your interest in EPFC courses. 

The next registration campaign will take place from 9 November to 17 November.

Language courses beginning: the weeks of 15 November 2021 or 22 November 2021

All the courses that start in November

For all courses other than language courses, you must be able to speak French fluently.

Two placement tests are required prior to any registration in French: a written test (maximum 45 minutes) followed by an oral test. Both tests take place at the EPFC, on appointment (the link will be published soon). 

Registration will take place on the day of the test, at the EPFC.

Two placement tests are required prior to any registration in English: a written test followed by an oral test. Both tests are organized online. 

  1. Take the written test via this form (the link will be activated on 9 November at 10:00).
  2. The appointment* for the oral test is made after the written test. This test will take place by videoconference only. 
  3. Then complete an application form, which will be sent to you after the oral test.

Once you have completed all these steps, you will be contacted :

  • by e-mail to finalise the payment of the registration
