Program Description: The first session of this program takes place at Lille Catholic University, a multidisciplinary university, and France's largest private university. The European Summer Program's goal is to give international students the opportunity to study in the summer at a University at the heart of Europe. The program is designed for students who are looking for a high-quality study abroad experience. Participants come from all over the world, and this diversity enhances the program for students as they are able to interact with other international students sharing a similar experience in France.
