Summer exchange

Paris, France.

Spend the summer abroad at one of LUSEM's partner universities!

Participating in a summer exchange is a great and fun way to boost your employability, by adding international merit to your CV, exploring new courses and subjects, practising your language skills and expanding your global network.

This year's offer of summer exchanges includes programmes and courses such as "International Fashion Business" at IÉSEG School of Management in Paris, "Big Data: Data Analytics and Visualisation" at Audencia Business School in Nantes and "Sports and Event Management in a Global Context" at Université Laval in Quebec, Canada. Explore the full offer for summer 2020 in the list below!

Some of the LUSEM's partner universities offer summer courses in the framework of the exchange. This means that students nominated by LUSEM are exempted tuition fees. Students applying should be aware that there will be other costs associated with the exchange, such as travel expenses, living costs and costs for activities. 

In some cases students from LUSEM are not exempted tuition fees, but are offered a reduced price instead.

Partaking in a summer exchange is suitable for Bachelor’s and Master’s students majoring in any of the subjects offered at the School of Economics and Management. 

Who can apply?
At the time of application, you must be registered for full-time studies at the School of Economics and Management, and have completed at least 30 credits at the School.

What if I have been on an exchange before?
You can apply for a summer course even if you have previously been nominated for, or already participated in, the School of Economics and Management’s exchange programme. Similarly, participation in summer courses will not prevent you from applying for exchange studies in future application rounds.
