  • What is the Bachelor Summer Program?

The Bachelor Summer Program gives you the opportunity to study at UJF, obtain credits for your home university and meet students from all over the word! It is also open to French UJF students with whom you will interact daily.

This 6 week program offers scientific courses taught in English and a French language and culture module. You may choose among three scientific topics (physical computing, large scale facilities, biochemistry). Each of them is made up of lessons, tutorials, practical work and scientific visits.

You will discover different aspects of French life through cultural excursions within the city and in its beautiful surroundings.
