Our main objective is to organise a multicultural event that will be an incentive for our students (and teachers) to learn from/about foreign countries, to gain experience abroad through study periods (Erasmus, among other possibilities) or internships or international programs .


The online application form is to be completed by 15th January 2023: HERE


Guests will have to cover for their accommodation and transport expenses, but the IUT will provide lunches and dinners. You may apply to an Erasmus+ teaching funding programme, through your university, please contact your International Office.


Over these 3 days, our first-year students will have no regular classes, but they will be requested to attend some of the lectures given by our foreign guests. Attendance will be compulsory for the students.

We would be pleased if, in accordance with Erasmus practices, each guest could give 8 hours of lectures altogether( some lectures can be repeated) . Those one-hour lectures should be given in a foreign language preferably (English, German, Spanish). If that is impossible, the lectures can also be given in French.

Please bear in mind that our students are in 1st year.
Therefore, your lectures should not be too specialized or too ambitious, all the more as they will be given in a foreign language. The important thing is to give them the opportunity to attend lectures in a foreign language and/or to discover other universities and other countries.

Our students participating in those International Days are from the following departments:
-Business Administration (including Finance/accounting, Management of SMEs, H.R.M.);
-Logistics and transport;
-Biology and food industry.

Consequently, all the topics related to the above-mentioned areas (biochemistry/biology, economics, business law, management, etc.) are welcome (but should not be too specialized). Your lecture may also deal with a special aspect of the political/social/cultural life of your region/country.
