Design a yearlong program uniquely suited to your academic major, professional aspirations and interests as you combine semester options into a yearlong program.
Create the yearlong program that best suits your needs by combining Lyon semester program options for a custom program. For example, a student could participate in the business program the first semester with a second semester of French language courses, the Certificate of French and European Studies program, or even regular French university courses through the Direct Enroll program for students with a strong mastery of French. This option allows students to potentially complete coursework in two distinct academic areas during their year in Lyon and is an outstanding option for students double-majoring in French and another academic area.
Requirements depend on the programs chosen. See each Lyon program page for more information.
Housing is coordinated by the IE3 Global Resident Director. Students may choose a host family, a residence hall, or a small apartment depending on their preferences. The host family option provides an opportunity for cultural and linguistic immersion and a majority of meals are included. Students living in residence halls have access to cooking facilities and/or inexpensive student restaurants.
IE3 Global seeks to make its exchange programs affordable and accessible. The exact price of this combination of programs depends on the programs chosen, but would be comparable to the price of the Lyon Direct Enroll program. For sample information regarding the program budget (both the program fee and an estimate of personal expenses), please click on the following:
The program fee includes academic and administrative fees, room and board allowance, on-site support, orientation expenses, group activities, and health and accident insurance. The program fee does not include airfare, visa expenses, campus-based fees and personal expenses such as local transportation, textbooks, laundry, recreation (including continental travel), personal supplies and incidental expenses.
Program costs for the upcoming academic year will be set in May. The program fee for non-resident and graduate students is higher than that for resident undergraduates. Information regarding payment schedule and refund policy will be provided during the IE3 Global orientation.
