About us

The Institut français was established in 1965 in Groningen. It is an institution which is directly linked to the French Embassy and its goal is to promote the French language and culture. Our office is located in the Harmoniegebouw at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Groningen.


The Institut français offers many French courses in addition to cultural activities . These courses are designed for people who wish to improve the reading, speaking and writing skills. Our offer ranges from A1 to C2 levels. We additionally arrange two DELF/DALF (official French diplomas) session a year.

For more information on our cultural activities and our courses, you can consult our brochure .

We aim to develop academic cooperation between France and the Netherlands by helping students and researchers with grants and mobilities and by holding scientific bilateral events such as the créathon . We are happy to give tips and advice to the students who wish to carry on their study or find an internship in France.
