Many partnerships offering short trips abroad

Summer and winter schools are university programmes with an international dimension giving students the chance to study one or more subjects abroad, in some cases, subject to certain conditions, validated as part of a course at the University of Lille under the ECTS. Lasting up to 8 weeks, these programmes are generally run during the summer or winter periods or between two teaching terms.

They can also give students the opportunity to take part in research projects at university laboratories.

In North American institutes, the programme may have different objectives: helping students secure credits for classes they are unable to attend during the academic year (for example if there is an overlap with another class), or allowing them to pick up credits for one or two classes not validated during the academic year.

Several North American and European universities offer these options.
