Courses often selected by Exchange Students


You are here : ENGLISH > Admissions & Courses > Courses often selected by exchange students

The University François-Rabelais offers a course catalogue to incoming exchange students. It is designed to help students establish their learning agreement. It is necessary to set up a programme equivalent to 30 ECTS per semestre, in agreement with your pedagogical coordinator in your home university and your administrative referents in Tours.

The information provided in this catalogue reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the university. However, it does not cover all the courses offered at the University of Tours. The catalogue only lists the courses often selected by exchange students, but you may add any other course of the university.
