The Program: In 1998, Southeast entered into a direct exchange agreement with the Université d'Angers in Angers, France. Angers, a city with 250,000 inhabitants, is situated in the Loire Valley in the west of France. It is best known for its medieval castle, the Château d'Angers (1230); its magnificent cathedral; and its beautiful countryside. Angers is less than 2 hours from Paris.

Academic Program & Calendar: Students with one year of French can enroll in intensive French language classes at the Université d'Angers. Students with two years of French can enroll in advanced language courses and in other disciplines. Fall Semester is Late September - Early February; Spring Semester is Early February - June.

Room & Board: Most students will stay in the University's dormitories (approximately $160-$250 per month). Meals can be taken in the Université d'Angers cafeteria at a reasonable cost.

Program Costs: All scholarships can be applied to this direct exchange:

Southeast Tuition (12 credits): $2202 (resident)/$3852 (nonresident)
Administration Fee: $250

Other costs: Airfare, housing, books, and incidental costs are additional and will vary from student to student. Departmental scholarships are available to help defray costs.

Eligibility: Sophomores, juniors, and seniors, with a minimum overall GPA of 2.7 are eligible to apply for the exchange. Applicants must express a strong desire to learn French and must be in good academic standing at the time of departure. French majors will be given preference.

Credit: Up to 12-15 credit hours of academic work at UA may be transferred to Southeast and recorded on the Southeast transcript. Letter grades will be recorded on the student's Southeast transcript upon return. Students should confer with French faculty before going to France and should return to Southeast with appropriate materials for faculty to evaluate course content, such as syllabi, written work, exams.
