Pre-departure session 11 June [fr]
In order to well prepare the departing students in the coming semester, 2 « pre-departure » sessions were organized on 11 June. Following the large number of registration, the participants were divided into 2 groups according to their destination – the first session for those to Paris & Lille, and the second session for the rest of France.
The event was indeed a successful one. A total of 80 students were warmly welcomed in the French Consulate. These students are heading to France for different study projects –French language course, exchange program, Master degree, etc. Each session started with a presentation about France: the education system, general information about the country, as well as tips for daily life. The visa application procedures were then presented, followed by a French survival phrases learning session. They were then invited not only to discuss among themselves, but also with the alumni.
