The International Summer School at University of Angers offers the opportunity to develop academic skills this summer. Each programme includes lectures, workshops, applied visits and lots of social events.
For the past 13 years, the University of Angers has given international students the opportunity to enrich their academic experience in a stimulating and relaxed environment while discovering French culture and the Anjou region.
The one or two-week programmes take place between Saturday 24th June - Wednesday 5th July 2023 consisting of lectures, workshops, fild trips, leisure activities...while developing your network and creating great memories.
The Summer School options are as follows:
- Plant Health and Quality
- Simulation in Health Care
- Sustainable strategies in organic electronics
- Primary Care
It is useful to note that:
- Courses are taught in English (except for the Primary Care Summer School, which is taught in French only)
- Most programmes are for Postgraduate students, so be sure to check the level of the programme and ensure it's suitable for you
- The number of participants can be restricted per programme, and places are allocated on a first come first serve basis
- The programme may be cancelled if the minimum number of participants isn't reached, so if you have signed up you will be given a full refund if the programme doesn't go ahead
