Diplôme d'études en langue française (DELF-DALF) Certification Examinations

Durham University is approved by the Institut français to offer DELF examinations at CEFR levels A1, A2, B1 and B2 and DALF examinations at C1 and C2.

Examination preparation materials may be found via the France Education International DELF website clicking on the appropriate examination level, or the France Education International DALF website.

COVID-19 Update: Next DELF-DALF examination session scheduled for May / June 2022

Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation, temporary suspension of face-to-face assessment and the obligations we have in our core role as a University, we are unable to offer DELF-DALF examinations in 2021.

We are currently planning to hold our next DELF-DALF examination session in late May / early June 2022. Further details will be released in due course. If you would like to be added to a contact list to receive updates on this, please contact

Please note that you may still be able to sit an examination this year at another centre. We cannot however provide any advice as to possible alternatives due to the present situation nationally and internationally.
