Université de Lausanne Summer French Language Courses

About the Program

Lausanne offers French language courses in the summer. Their offerings include 3-week and 6-week options for complete beginners and for students at levels A1 through C1. However, there is only one program track, the Mutual Teaching in Context or MTC Program (previously called "Learning through Cultural Mediation" or LCM) that offers transfer credits. The MTC Program is only available to students at the B1 level of French language proficiency or higher. Please note that your language level will be assessed on the first day of class and you will be placed at that time. 

Final program details will be published by the partner institution that manages this program and are generally updated on their program webpage. However, you must apply through Go Global to be considered for this program and ensure you follow the appropriate transfer credit process.

Course Credits

You will enroll in 1 language course. Your language level will be assessed upon arrival. Please note that currently, ECTS credits (2 ECTS Credit = 1 UBC Credit) are only awarded for the MTC program; however, fees will be charged regardless of the program you enroll in. Visit the program page for information on assessment and credits.

Transfer credits are only granted for courses with academic content and may not be granted for cultural activities or intensive language courses. Please speak to a departmental advisor if you have any questions.
