Campus France launches new study programme French+Sciences
Campus France is launching a new programme for short study stays in sciences, "French ⨁ Sciences", in partnership with the centers of FLE (French as a foreign language).
HIGHLIGHT FRENCH TECHNOLOGICAL KNOW-HOW BY REMOVING THE LANGUAGE BARRIER
The creation of this programme is meant for English-speaking students enrolled in science and technology universities, and who can be complete beginners in French.
The courses offered as part of "French⨁Sciences" aim to promote the French technological know-how and the excellence of the scientific training. They are conducted in English - while including a module of FLE (French as a foreign language): the objective is to overcome the language barrier, and allow non-French speaking students to experience a short programme in science and perhaps pursue studies in France.
INNOVATIVE FIELDS FOR CURRENT CHALLENGES
These short stays of 3 to 4 weeks revolve around a thematic and internationally recognized companies in the economic area of the FLE Partner Centers (all referenced "FLE Quality Label"):
The last three allow the validation of ECTS credits.

A SIMPLIFIED REGISTRATION PROCESS FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
The registrations are done online on the website of the partner FLE centers, that can answer students’ questions directly. Session dates are based on the summer holidays in both hemispheres, so that regardless of the area of origin of students interested in "French ⨁ Sciences", they can find a session corresponding to the period of their holidays.
A NEW TAILOR-MADE INSURANCE
Another innovation introduced in this programme is the creation of a specific short-term insurance scheme, developed by Campus France in partnership with MGEL / APRIL International: this insurance covers health, repatriation and public liability costs; when applicable, it allow to obtain a visa. A certificate is available upon payment.
