Third Year in Nice Exchange Program - Academic Information
On-Site Coordinator 2017-2018: Dr. Alain Thomas (University of Guelph)
Courses from the Université de Nice
You will be expected to register in the equivalent of 3.0 courses (six semester courses) at the Faculté des Lettres et Sciences Humaines, Université de Nice. The Program Coordinator will assist you with your course selections.
You will receive credit from the participating university at which you are registered for all French courses you complete successfully at Nice. However, you must abide by all of your home university's regulations regarding course changes and cancellations to the extent that is feasible. If in doubt always contact the Program Coordinator. Iit may also be necessary to consult your own university. Every effort will be made to find equivalent courses. For courses in areas of study other than French, it is the student's responsibility to ascertain that the home university will accept the course for transfer credit.
Normally, the French courses which participants in the Canadian Third Year in Nice Program take are first-year level courses from the Département de Lettres Modernes. The web site of the Université de Nice can help you decipher the system of diplomas in French Universities, which has undergone a major restructuring that was implemented in the 2004-2005 academic year. Rather than taking "DEUG I" courses as they were called under the old system, students will take mostly "Licence 1" courses.
Your home University will advise you on the equivalents that will be assigned to the courses.
