French courses for refugees

As mastery of the language is the first integration vector in a new environment, ULiège offers those who are engaged in a university training process the possibility to reach the legal French level (level B2) required for admission. French courses as a foreign language have therefore been organised, in collaboration with the ISLV (Institute of Modern Languages), in accordance with the access conditions and practical modalities specified below:

Access conditions

  • Refugee status (asylum seeker, recognised refugee, subsidiary protection or stateless person) with
  • prior knowledge (A1 minimum) of French
  • holder of a secondary diploma or university degree
  • university training project in Belgium


  • duration and frequency: 10-week modules (October/December, January/March, April/June) - 4 days per week (Monday to Thursday) - 3 hours per day (1 p.m. to 4 p.m.)
  • levels: three different course levels (between A1 and B2)
  • quality teaching: professors certified in French as a foreign language (ISLV) - number of students limited to 15 per class
  • assessment: level and selection tests - examination at the end of each module
  • cost: free tuition and handling of travel expenses for public transportation
  • location: central building of University - Liège city
  • application: any interested person must make an appointment with the Refugee Office (see "contact(s)" ay the bottom of the page).

French conversation in "tandem" with a member of the university community: win-win!

Of course, French courses are suspended during the summer...however, at ULiège, the university community is mobilised: members of personnel and students respond to the call, on a volunteer basis, to share a few hours of individual conversation with refugee students.

An enriching experience, beyond the practice of French: the encounter, openness to others and their reality, help with integration...and working together.

This citizen action is highly encouraged within our Alma Mater.
