CIEF is one of the oldest centers of French language teaching, culture and civilization in France (born in 1901). It is a member of the ADCUEFE-CAMPUS FLE (Association of University Centers for French Studies for Foreigners).

This reference center is also resolutely turned towards the introduction of new classes and educational innovations and it works all year round (also offering training and organizing excursions to discover the treasures of the region and France).

Its size (about 800 students each year) allows to build privileged and personalized relationships between the teaching team and the participants in its programs.

The verdant and welcoming Dijon campus promotes linguistic immersion and interculturality.

The international student is constantly at the center of all our concerns and we hope that his passage to CIEF is a key step in his reflection as a citizen of an ever more open and cosmopolitan world.

Our region, located in the center and the heart of Europe, is rich in history and a millenary heritage: architecture, art, gastronomy, wines of Burgundy…

Its capital, Dijon metropolis, located at 1h35 by TGV from Paris, has all the assets of a city combining history, modernity and economic dynamism.
