Ready to meet French people?

Learn French through immersion at CIDEF!

Learning French at CIDEF gives you the opportunity to meet French people on campus (9,000 students) and during social and cultural events at various other venues.

The BEC and AFIA will help you settle in your new student life in France

CIDEF hosts the BEC, an exchange programme office that organises events (for example the so-called “international evening”), sports and cultural activities that are as many opportunities to meet with French students. Hundreds of students contact the BEC to take advantage of its network and thus have the opportunity to meet and befriend French people.

To help you settle into your new French life, CIDEF also works with A.F.I.A. (Accueil familial international de l’Anjou), an organisation that will give you the chance to meet with French families for a meal or a cup of tea and thus hone your speaking skills.

CIDEF is committed to encourage global student communication
