Université Catholique de Lille - Summer Program Website


The European Summer Program is a four-week program for international students who want to discover Europe and learn how to speak French. It takes place annually, in two separate periods, from May - July, in Lille (located in northern France).

Either period of ESP would allow students to take 12 ECTS worth of courses (i.e., this is usually 6 UAlberta credits worth of courses) during their summer abroad.

The program is designed as a real « package », including courses, trips in Northern France and some large European cities, accommodation, some meals, detailed orientation session, and pick-up at the train station.
