Knowledge of the French language is required since all the courses are provided in French. A student with a beginner level in French will not be accepted in the Master program.
For non-Francophone students, the minimum required level is B1.2 (corresponding to at least 400 hours of French courses) according to the criteria of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Those whose level is under B1.2 must attend summer upgrading intensive courses on site prior to the training. These courses are provided by the Centre of French Language (CFLE) of the CIHEAM Montpellier (ISO 9001 certified and labelled Quality FLE).
French-speaking students (except French natives) must undertake the distance learning provided in French and starting in July. The trainees will be assessed in September.
Advanced knowledge in economic sciences are required since the economy is a central component of the Masters programmes of the CIHEAM Montpellier.
For all students with little or no initial training in economic sciences, prerequisites in economy are required and distance courses organized accordingly from July to September, followed by classroom courses, also in September.
