AEC and DEC programs

International students entering our DEC (Diploma of College Studies) programs must have completed schooling that is considered equivalent to a high school diploma issued by the Quebec Ministry of Education (MEES).

Prospective DEC students must prove that they have passed the Test d’évaluaion de français pour le Canada (TEF Canada) with the respective conditions met in order to be considered for admission. Please find the TEF Canada result requirements below.

For AEC (Attestation of College Studies) programs, your prior schooling must demonstrate your ability to undertake College studies should you not have a high school diploma. All international students must successfully complete the TAV College English Language Admission Test to verify language proficiency.

Mandatory French Knowledge
French proficiency levels for an AEC in English

As of July 2023, all individuals enrolled in the AEC program in English must demonstrate sufficient knowledge of French to obtain their attestation. Individuals holding a certificate of eligibility for instruction in English are exempt from this requirement.

The following skills will be evaluated using the Quebec scale of French proficiency levels: listening, speaking, reading and writing.

The Ministry regulations require more advanced oral than written skills:

  • Speaking and listening : Level 7 (B2)
  • Reading and writing : Level 4 (A2)

TAV College will not provide your attestation if you have not demonstrated sufficient French knowledge. Proof of this level of French language proficiency is required BEFORE the start of the program OR DURING the program. This proof will be placed in the students’ file. Students can have access to francization services before, during and after their studies. Please contact the international academic advisor for in-college French courses.

Recognized French Language Tests: TEFAQ, TCF-Québec, TCF-Canada, TEF, TEF Canada, TCF, DELF and DALF

Period of validity

All standardized tests have a validity period. A test that is no longer valid will not be accepted by TAV College. However, an attestation that was valid at the time of admission, but is no longer valid because studies have been extended, will be recognized. A student who has demonstrated attainment of levels 7 and 4 will not have to retake a standardized test.

Language test results

International students, having completed the following tests, must have obtained at least these results for their admission. Please note that the TAV College test must also be successfully completed, regardless of the other test results.
