A learning agreement is a study contract that specifies the curriculum to follow, as agreed by the student and his coordinator.

Language assessment and Online Linguistic Support (OLS)
Students selected for the Erasmus+ program have to take part in the assessment in the Online Linguistic Support (OLS) platform to grade their level of proficiency in French.
You will have to take a first language assessment before your departure, and then a second assessment when you return after your exchange in order to monitor your progress in the French language during your mobility at the University of Evry-Val-d'Essonne. Although it is mandatory, it will not prevent you from participating in the Erasmus+ program.
After you take the 1st language assessment, you will be able to follow a free online language course.
