API in Caen, France: Intensive Language summer
Founded in 1432, the Université de Caen, Basse-Normandie is one of Europe’s oldest academic institutions, and is located in the center of Caen. It is a multi-disciplinary university, welcomes 24,000 students each year and offers at more than one hundred different programs.
This program is designed to provide summer students who wish to study abroad in Caen with the necessary language tools for an immediate immersion into the French civilization and way of life, and to enable them to gain a sufficient autonomy in a various range of communication situations. Students will take 45 hours of French language (for 3 semester credits), and will then be required to select an afternoon cultural module for an additional 30 hours (for 2 semester credits). In total, students will earn 5 semester credits for this program.
Because the mandatory afternoon cultural modules each carry different prices, we have itemized the minimal fees separately per course, which will be reflected on the course offerings page and dates and fees pages.
Coursework is supplemented by cultural activities and excursions, which will take place on free afternoons and weekends to enhance the learning experience.
