Study in English, in French or in both languages

All courses at Saint Paul University are given in English, in French, or in both languages. To gain admission, you must therefore demonstrate proficiency in one of these languages.

I am applying for admission to a program offered in French:

If you would like to study in French and French is not your first language, you must submit official results from the intermediate test of the Alliance Française: 613-234-9470 or http://www.af.ca/spip.php, or contact a French embassy.

I am applying for admission to a program offered in English:

If you’re applying for an English-language program and you have not completed at least three years of full-time study in an institution where English is the only language of instruction,  located in a country where English is an official language, you must submit your official score in one of the following language tests recognized by the University.

Language tests

Scores indicated below are required for all programs offered in a direct-entry faculty. Even if you achieve the required score, we reserve the right to ask you to take language courses if we feel that your knowledge of one of the two official languages is not satisfactory. Test scores are valid for two years.

What score must I obtain in recognized ESL proficiency tests?
