Short term mobility
Exchanges last from 3 to 12 months. You are expected to have good results at your home university and an intermediate to advanced level of language proficiency. As a student in France you will be a non-degree candidate, meaning that you will not be granted a degree in France, but your studies abroad will be acknowledged by your home university. You only pay fees at your home institution.
