The French Institute of Qatar is the only authorized center in Qatar to be able to organize French exams. We offer different types of exams to certify your French language level in the following situations: 


  • The TEF Canada targets candidates wishing to certify their French language level for immigration and nationality procedures. It is required by the Federal Government of Canada.
  • The TEF Québec (TEFAQ) is aimed at candidates wishing to immigrate to Quebec and need to certify their level of French. It is required by the Ministry of Immigration, Francisation and Integration (MIFI). 

Professional / General / Academic

  • The DELF Tout Public (Diplomas d’Etudes en Langue Française) is designed for people wishing to evaluate their level of French for personal, academic or professional purposes and is valid for life. Foreign students wishing to continue their studies in France are required by French universities to provide a DELF AP diploma. The DELF AP assesses the levels (A1, A2, B1, B2) of the European Language Framework (CEFRL). The DALF (Advanced Diplomas in French Language) corresponds to advanced levels (C1, C2).
  • The TCF Tout Public SO (Test de Connaissance du Français sur Ordinateur)certifies your level of French for personal, academic or professional purposes. The TCF results in the issuance of a level certificate valid for 2 years.


  • The TCF IRN (French knowledge test – Integration, Residence and Nationality) is essential for foreigners wishing to obtain French nationality. This exam responds to the new provisions establishing level B1 (oral and written comprehension and expression exam) as the level required in the French language for candidates for naturalization.

Diplomas for the youngest

  • The DELF Junior targets students who are still in secondary school (12 to 17 years old). The Junior version has the same structure as the DELF all Public but covers subjects relating to the interests and passions of teenagers. The exams range from level A1 to B2.
  • The DELF Prim is designed for children in primary school (6 to 12 years old) who are starting to learn French. The exams correspond to level A1.1, A1 and A2.

International Certificate of Mastery in Arabic (CIMA)

  • The CIMA (International Certificate of Mastery in Arabic) assesses the four key skills required for all candidates wishing to interact in Arabic. The exam is therefore made up of four compulsory modules lasting a total of three hours.

DAEFLE (FLE teachers)

  • The professional diploma in French as a foreign language from the Alliance Française Paris Ile-de-France (DAEFLE) is aimed at anyone holding a Bachelor degree and at level C1 wishing to teach French as a foreign language (FLE) in France and/or abroad.
