Université Lumière Lyon 2 CIEF French Language and Culture Summer School

About the Program

Spend four weeks discovering Lyon and the beauty of the region all while improving your French. Open to students of all levels of French language proficiency, the CIEF Summer School provides language courses in the mornings to help students develop written and oral skills for comprehension and linguistic expression. Then in the afternoons, students engage in collaborative project-based learning. The CIEF Leisure team organizes immersive cultural experiences and outings throughout the program such as sampling local gastronomy and a field trip to Annecy. 

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.

  5. If you plan to do multiple experiences (e.g. more than one summer program, a term exchange and a summer program, etc.), please submit a separate application for each experience. Our team will review your application(s) and if successful, will nominate you to apply to the partner institution(s). 
  6. Pay the Go Global Fee when prompted, after the application deadline.
