About the programs

Modelled on its highly successful month-long European Summer Program, offered every June and July since 2001, the Lille Short Programs are two-week long programs designed to give students from all over the world a unique academic and cultural experience, complete with group dinners, local and regional tours and opportunities to socialize with French students.

 The programs offer:

  - French language classes (c. 18 hours),

  - Intercultural Communication (c. 2 hours),

  - Classes in a specific field of study with related guided visits (c. 25 hours):

Introduction to France and Europe: Lille’s location at the heart of Europe in northern France, close to Brussels, London and Paris, makes it a perfect location from which to study both France and Europe – their history, culture, politics and more.

Business and Management in Europe: learn about the European economy and about trade in France and Belgium.

Visualising ‘Flanders’: examine a sampling of the rich artistic heritage of Flanders in its historical and physical context, from paintings to fictional films.

French language and culture: conversation classes in the afternoons with cultural visits, in addition to the morning language classes.
