What you need to know

The program details

Students choose one, two, or three 4-week sessions and immerse themselves in France’s art, history, and culture. Courses include the opportunity to explore French business, art history, and/or French identity and immigration. Students can also enroll in an optional Communicative French Language course taught in French (1 credit). In-class work is augmented with co-curricular visits to the city’s rich variety of cultural institutions and organizations relevant to the course offering.

CIEE Toulouse is located in the historic district of Toulouse, in the middle of the vibrant city center and close to all the main commercial facilities, Institut Catholique de Toulouse, and cultural sites.

Academics

Academics

  • CLASS FORMAT

    Classes will be taken with other CIEE students only.

  • GRADING

    Grades are based on essays, written tests, oral presentations, out-of-class project reports, class participation, and final exams. Students can expect at least one midterm and one final exam during the term. The final exam can account for as much as 50% of the final grade. In general, French professors use a French grading scale of 0–20, with 10 considered a minimal passing grade. All final grades will be converted into U.S. letter grades.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    Students notice striking differences between education systems. Professors in France tend to be more formal than in the United States and do not see it as their role to give encouragement or individual attention to students. As a result, French students are generally very self-disciplined and do not expect to be motivated by their instructors. Classes will typically meet Monday through Friday. Students are expected to complete all of the homework assigned and take exams when scheduled.

Eligibility

  • OVERALL GPA

    Students need to have a GPA of at least 2.5.
