These summer schools will take place in France in July 2019.The France Excellence Summer Schools courses  are taught in English by professors-researchers from French universities of international reputation. The summer schools are made up of guided practical work, training modules to introduction to research, and a first introduction to French language and culture.

APPLICATION

The Summer Schools Program France Excellence is dedicated to Bachelor Master students who wish to pursue their studies with a PhD. Students should have a good English level and an excellent academic background in the chosen field. The number of places available is limited to guarantee the quality of supervision. A limited number (100) of grants will be attributed by the French Embassy to support exceptional applications. The grant covers the tuition fees (mostly all-inclusive: courses, meals, accommodation, sightseeings, local transportation) and the visa fees, but does not cover trips from China to France and from France to China.
 
You will be informed about admission before 2019 April.
You should find an answer to most of your questions here. Otherwise you can contact the France Excellence Summer School Team at ecoledete@institutfrancais-chine.com.
