Short programs

For over 15 years, the University of Tours has been organizing short academic programs (also called ‘summer programs’) in English or in French, at the request of its international partners exclusively.

As a comprehensive university, the UT is particularly asked for conceiving short programs around literature, culture, gastronomy, or Renaissance in France and in the Loire Valley, but any topic can be made available !

While in Tours for a few weeks, students and professors can enjoy our university and region in a secure environment thanks to a turnkey service fully managed by the International Relations Office : accommodation, classes, cultural activities, and logistical aspects are totally handled.

Some of our reference partners !

The University of Tours has acquired a real expertise in the development of such tailor-made short programs. Here are some of our international partners trusting the University of Tours for designing their summer/winter programs !
