Which course should you complete to prove your oral French knowledge?
One of the most popular options to prove knowledge of French for the Quebec Experience Program is to provide a final transcript attesting to the successful completion of an advanced intermediate level French course taken in Québec, in a recognized educational institution.
It is very important to select a course that is accepted by the authorities before registering. Submission of a Quebec Experience Program application with an invalid French course can lead to a refused application.
Several course options are offered, divided by educational level, from high school to university level. The selection of the appropriate educational level depends on the type of eligible diploma you are pursuing for the Quebec Experience Program. For example, if you are pursuing a bachelor degree, you will select a university level language course.
