The International MINERVE Programme combines disciplinary courses taught in German, Spanish or Italian with 21 bachelor’s degrees (fr. Licence), while continuing to learn English.
Courses are taught by German-, Spanish– or Italian-speaking teachers based at the Université Lumière Lyon 2, as well as teachers from foreign partner universities.
Students become familiar with foreign university practices, while working on subjects complementary to those studied in their standard undergraduate programme.
The International MINERVE programme is ideal for all those who wish to give an international dimension to their undergraudate degree, and an optimal preparation for study abroad experiences, possible as of the third year.
