Why take these exams?

If not simply for your own benefit, these French diplomas can be an asset to your CV as they are internationally recognised for both professional applications and university studies.

For instance, holders of the DALF C1 diploma and sometimes the DELF B2 can be exempted from taking an entrance test before enrolling in a French University. For foreign students, the DALF C1 is usually the required gateway to the most prestigious schools or universities.

What are the DELF and DALF exams?

The Diplôme d'études en langue française (English: Diploma in French Language Studies), or DELF for short, is a certification of French-language abilities for non-native speakers of French administered by the International Centre for French Studies (Centre international d'études pédagogiques, or CIEP) for France's Ministry of Education.

There are six independent diplomas, which correspond, respectively, to the six levels of the Council of Europe' s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). The examinations can be taken in 1 186 approved examination centres in 173 countries, including Oxford. The DELF and DALF qualifications are consistent with international standards for test development & the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. The 6 diplomas that make up DELF and DALF are completely independent. This means that candidates can register for the examination of their choice, according to their level. If you wish to emigrate to Québec or Canada, the eTEFaQ/eTEF Canada are also highly recommended.
Since 2019, we have become a fully accredited centre. You can now take your DELF and DALF exams at the Alliance Francaise d’Oxford, conveniently located in Central North Oxford for ease of access from North Oxford, Jericho, Summertown, Central Oxford and Oxfordshire.

We will also be offering DELF Junior Exams (for 11-17 yo) in 2020.  Please contact us for more information.
