Test de Connaissance du Français (TCF)

Do you want to assess your linguistic skills in French for personal, academic, or professional purposes?

The TCF is an official exam recognized by the French government. It provides a snapshot of your level of French language proficiency.

The TCF is available in six versions, four of which are currently offered by The French Institute in Qatar, your only approved center in Qatar:

TCF Tout Public allows you to justify your level of French proficiency for personal academic or professional purposes.

TCF DAP for the prior admission request, is available for students who wish to integrate a license 1 in a French university or a French school of architecture.

TCF ANF for access to French nationality is essential for any foreign person wishing to acquire French nationality by naturalization, reintegration or by declaration of nationality by marriage to a French citizen. This examination meets the new provisions introduced by the French Ministry of the Interior fixing at level B1 (oral and written comprehension and expression tests) the level required in French for applicants for naturalization.

TCF for the residence card in France, is essential for any foreign person under the age of 65 requesting for the first time the issue of a long-term resident card (valid for 10 years) or a card marked “Long-term resident – EU”. It meets the new provisions introduced by the French Ministry of the Interior (Decree No. 2016-1456 of October 28, 2016 and Order of February 21, 2018) setting the required level at A2 (oral and written comprehension and expression tests) in French for applicants applying for the long-term resident card.
