Further Your French Studies at Laval University in Beautiful Québec City!
The Modern Languages Institute at UFV is pleased to announce a new Student Exchange Agreement with Laval University in Québec City. Students will be able to pursue 12 credits of advanced French study at Laval and transfer the credits back to UFV as fourth-year courses. Students will pay tuition fees at UFV, which are lower than those they would pay at Laval. Laval University will provide students with a proper welcome, an academic tutor to favour their integration in their academic program, and will provide information to find housing.
Who Can Participate?
Students must have successfully completed FREN 319 and two other 300-level FREN courses.
How Many Students Can Participate?
Two qualified students will be able to participate in the exchange in the 2013-2014 academic year. After 2014, 5 qualified students will be able to participate per academic year.
How Are Students Selected for the Exchange?
Students should notify the Department Head of Modern Languages of their wish to pursue this exchange at least two months before they wish to participate in the exchange. Qualified students will be selected on a first-come, first-serve basis.
How Do Students Select Courses at Laval?
Students will be given a French language placement test in order to select appropriate courses and receive approval prior to departure.
