The Kindergarten and Elementary Pédagogie de l'Immersion Française major is designed to meet the needs of students enrolled in the B.Ed.

Competency in French

Students wishing to follow the Kindergarten and Elementary Pédagogie de l'Immersion Française major must demonstrate a high level of competency in French by: providing proof of graduation from a French language secondary/high school (not French Immersion) or CEGEP; or by placing at the FRSL 431 level or higher on the French Language Placement Test (FLPT) at the French Language Centre (McGill).

Pédagogie de l'Immersion Française (PIF) Freshman Year (U0)

Students from outside of Quebec may be required to complete the Freshman en français year (offered through the French Language Centre, Faculty of Arts). Students undertaking the Freshman en français year may also be conditionally accepted into the PIF program, if they have a strong background in French (ex. Grade 12 French Immersion Program) and achieve an acceptable grade in the FLPT.
Those students who are conditionally accepted will be transferred to the PIF program following successful completion of their freshman year (passing grade in level appropriate FRSL courses). Unsuccessful candidates will remain registered in the regular B.Ed. Kindergarten/Elementary stream.

Students should contact advisedise.education [at] mcgill.ca to indicate their desire to transfer into this major and will need to provide proof of French Language Competency, as outlined above for the transfer to be accepted/processed.
