Public: these thematic courses are reserved and designed for English-speaking students enrolled in a partner university and on a bilateral fee-paying program at UPVM3.

Course duration: 3 hours per week over the 13 weeks of the semester.

Number of courses per student : Up to 4 or 5 courses per semester, for a maximum total of around 15 hours per week. Depending on the home university, some of these classes may be “required classes”.

Program durations:

  • September to May (academic year)
  • September to December (1st semester)
  • January to May (2nd semester)

Language level : Most but not all of the courses are level-based. If applicable, the level required will be checked when applying.

Validation: These courses do not grant ECTS because they are not part of a university degree. They give credits, which are generally transferred by US universities, 1 hour = 1 credit.

The final grade also depends on class attendance. If the student is absent from class or arrives late, the final grade will be lower.

Places are limited and pre-registration is required.
