Diploma in French language for higher studies, or DiFLHiS, is a special program designed by the administrative team of Centre Zenith as a foundation course to help students from the non French speaking countries to gain academic skills necessary to succeed in the French education environement and to learn French to the level necessary for studying at the French Universities (B2 level).




BE READY FOR THE FRENCH UNIVERSITIES: During this one year, international students will gain and finetune their academic skills necessary to succeed in the French system. They will learn French, to the level necessary to get into a French University. They will appear in the DELF test for the B2 level. By the end of the program, students will be both ready to join a French University for higher studies and be fluent in French.


CONCIOUS DECISION: Secondly, this program will help a foreign student to come to France, understand the life and society here over a period of one year, and take a concious decision about the stream of higher education which best suits their professional ambition. 


SOCIO-PROFESSIONAL ADVANTAGES: Thirdly, our foundation program will give students skills necessary to get into the social life in France more smoothly and to find a part time job more easily. They will have distinct advantages over most other international students from non-French speaking countries while looking for an internship or a job.


REDUCE COSTS: Lastly, this will drastically reduce cost of study in France for students from non French speaking countries. As of now, the only way to study in France for English speaking individuals is to get into prorgrams which are proposed in English, where fees often start from 15,000 euros a year and goes beyond 40,000 euros. With our foundation program, students will pay 6,000 euros for the first year and then can get into a University degree where annual fees may be as little as 300 euros a year.





It is a 615 hours program, and will be conducted over 44 weeks, from October 2021. You will study for 15 hours a week, from Monday to Friday and 3 hours a day. There will be two holidays. 2 weeks during the Christmass and New year, and 1 week during the ascension. There will be 12 to 16 students in a class.


Being on time and regular in the class will be important. Besides the DiFLHiS certificate you will also get a DELF B2 certificate by year end after successfully passing the examination.
