Prior to taking their first French course, students are required to write the Nipissing University French placement test. This test will evaluate the language competency of students and enable them to enrol in the appropriate language level. Students who have tested at a level equivalent to or greater than FREN 2007 may pursue their French studies in any upper level courses (e.g. FREN 2106, FREN 3006, etc.) The Faculty of Arts and Science French placement test and the French minor are distinct from the French proficiency requirement for admission to the Schulich School of Education. Students should consult the Schulich School of Education for details on those requirements.
