Number of places available

2 per semester

Language of instruction

This destination has a language of instruction other than English. This means that you need to have at least a language proficiency level of CEFR B2 French. You need to complete French Language and Culture II (UCHUMFRE21) or get an exemption from the UCU Language & Culture coordinator, and it is your own responsibility to achieve at least B2 French. This language requirement is partly for your own protection, so you can take courses at the same level as you do at UCU, and partly because we believe it allows you to have an experience abroad that is more immersive, enriching and culturally valuable to you.

At EGE Rabat there are English courses available, but the possibility of oversubscription means you might have to take courses in French. Knowledge of Arabic is not necessary, but international students are expected to study Arabic as part of their programme.
