To get an IFP School degree, all students must obtain a minimum level of English (TOEIC: 945) because a very good command of English is essential in the energy and transport sectors. At the beginning of the school year, all students must take an internal test to assess their current level of English. If they do not get this score, they must take English classes once or twice a week, in order to take the test again in the course of the year and practice the language orally.
IFP School provides students with a Language Hub, dedicated to foreign languages (books, games, magazines, DVDs and documentation preparing students to take tests).
Students applying to an English-language program must give proof of a minimum level in one of the following tests before the admissions board convenes:
- TOEIC: 850
- TOEFL: 90
- IELTS: 6.5
- Cambridge: 175
- Bulats: 70
Compulsory courses are organized twice a week for students who need to improve their level of French. Objectives:
- understand syntax rules and vocabulary
- communicate in everyday situations
- adapt more easily to the French culture
Students with a higher level can take optional classes, with topics in:
- culture and civilization
- written expression techniques
French courses are proposed to students to help them get used to life in France and adapt more easily to the French culture.
Spanish and German classes can also be offered, depending on the demand.
