Program Description: Lille Catholic University is the largest private university in France and is a 15-minute walk from the town center. In addition to French language and culture courses, students have the opportunity to take some courses in English and French from the university's many schools.

Program Location: Lille is known as a friendly city: its people work hard but also know how to enjoy life. Lille offers a wide variety of entertainment, cultural and sporting activities, pubs and restaurants, as well as fine museums, concert halls and theaters, mostly within walking distance from the Lille Catholic University campus.
Lille is a lively university city situated at the heart of North-Western Europe. It is at the hub of a cross-border metropolis (France-Belgium) of around 1.2 million inhabitants, with a student population of over 100,000. The city is the capital of French Flanders. It is strategically positioned: within a 150- mile radius, there are five European capitals (Amsterdam, Brussels, London, Luxembourg, and Paris), and excellent road and rail links make Lille a major European crossroads.
