Summer Courses


Students who have regularly attended at least one session of French language courses (in the current year) can register for an exam to obtain a language diploma:

- A2-B1 Diploma Examination

- Certificate Examination B2-C1

If they pass, they will be awarded a language diploma, certifying their level in French: A2, B1, B2 or C1.

Passing the Certificate of French (advanced level diploma: B2 or C1) exempts students from the French admission exam to the University of Geneva (the Faculty of Arts requires an additional test).

  • Registration for the examination is only open to participants of the current year's Summer School.
  • Students who have failed the preparatory year offered by the ELCF cannot register for the B2-C1 Summer School Certificate.
  • Cancellations and refunds are possible before the announced registration deadline.
  • All requests for cancellation must be sent by e-mail to cefle(at)
  • In the case of a refund, an administration fee of CHF 20.00 will be deducted.
  • In case of cancellation for administrative or medical reasons (no visa, border closure, flight cancellation, quarantine, illness) and upon presentation of supporting evidence, reimbursement after the deadline is possible with a CHF 20.00 administration fee.
