Introductory crash courses aim to make students’ integration easier ! A good preparation is essential to make the most of your studies in a new school abroad. In fact, the general organisation of studies, teaching methods, requirements and assessment processes are quite different depending on the country or continent.

The period of adjustment over the first weeks of your stay in this new environment is essential. For this purpose, 4 Introductory Periods are available for all international students. The objectives and content of those sessions are established according to the students’ needs :
- French as a Foreign Language' Session ('FLE')
- Session for the Master's degree by Apprenticeship (French 'Ingénieur' diploma)
- Session for the “International Vintage?? MSc

Common objectives :
- refresh and develop language skills,
- build up students’ confidence in speaking,
- help international students meet with ESA students,
- acquaint students with the environment (campus and local life),
- acquire oral and written language skills.

Such sessions are not designed for beginners in French, but for students at elementary or intermediate levels. Students should have acquired the fundamentals of French to be able to attend the classes.

If you have registered for a degree course at the ESA Group, a tutor will supervise you throughout your studies. He/she will provide you with the necessary support concerning all academic issues or any problems resulting from an extended stay away from your home country and culture.

From your very first day in Angers, you will have the opportunity to participate in social events, outings or week-end excursions and meet with French students. You will be assisted by a French peer student who will help you settle into social life and solve everyday issues.
