Credit-point Courses - French for Economists

There are a total of four separate economic Français Economique courses (A-B-C-D) within the scope of the Economic Français Economique Credit-point Courses.  Only one course (A or B or C or D) is offered on a rotating basis each semester.

  1. Bachelor students in their study year of consolidation and specialization (s. PO §8).
  2. Online registration for the chosen course during the stipulated registration time (30.03.2020 until 14.04.2020).  Registration is on a ‘first come first served basis’. After the online registration for French for Economists Credit-Point Courses has ended, a later e-mail registration is only possible for students of our Faculty who have in the past already successfully completed one of our French for Economists Credit-point Courses, and, of course, if there are any vacant places available on these courses.
  3. Only in summer semester 2020: an official document proving your language abilities (B2.2 Certificate, DEFL B2 or C1) or a pass grade in the final examinations of a previous Bachelor Credit-point Course in French for Economists.


According to the Common European Reference Framework on Languages (CEFR), the target of this course corresponds to level C1.1. The economic French course ‘Vertiefung’ provides a good preparation for this course.


Due to the decision made on the coronavirus by the cabinet of the Hessen State Government, the Foreign Languages for Economists Department has decided to cancel the qualifying test for the 2020 summer semester.

Lessons will commence from 20 April onwards.

You will be required to present an official document proving your language abilities (B2.2 Certificate, DEFL B2 or C1) when registering. Students will not be able to register without one of the above certificates.
