Exchange Programs

Junior Year Abroad

The Department encourages students in a four-year program to spend their junior year in a French-speaking environment. To this end, a study abroad progam has been put into place allowing students to spend their third year at the CIDEF (Centre International d'Etudes Francaises) in Angers, France. For information about this program, see the chair or designate.

Check the StFX International Exchange Office website for details on how to apply for a junior year abroad experience. Various opportunities for student exchange at French universities are below.
