Studying in IAE

There are different ways to study in IAE Lille. It depends of your statute.

  1. If you are a student in a school or a university that is located in a country participating in Erasmus + program, then you can come to study at IAE Lille, School of Management of Lille.
    The duration of your stay can vary between 3 and 12 months. In this Erasmus frame you will be exempted from tuition fees in the host university (Lille 1 University).
    By obtaining ECTS credits, your education at IAE Lille will be fully recognized in your curriculum. (One full academic term at IAE Lille = 30 ECTS).
  2. If you are in a country which is not participating in Erasmus program, you maybe may apply in the frame of another kind of exchange between your country and France (Erasmus + - International Credits Mobility). Contact your own University international office to know if it is the case.
  3. Your own University may have set up a special exchange agreement with University of Lille covering Management and BA studies, maybe a double degree program.
    For this too, contact your own University international office. 
    In the previous settings you will gain the credits for the courses, recognized by your University for your own degree, but you won't gain the French degree (except in the double degree frame). To get the French degree, you must apply as a  "regular student" for proper registration. You may apply for all our programs, but note that there is a selection process and deadlines. You have to look at the page of the program(s) you are interested by, and follow the requested procedure. Our international programs, particularly the programs fully or partially in English are specially open to international students. See below the list of these programs.
