Program Description:
Lille Header 2019PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The Paris-Lille program is designed for students to study French language, culture, art, cinema, politics, or international business while immersing themselves in the French experience. The program begins with a five day study tour in Paris. Students will have time to visit the major sites in Paris, take a bike tour of Versailles, and visit Giverny, home of Claude Monet. After completing the travel study tour, the group will travel to Lille for the remaining four weeks of the program. With a population of over one million, Lille is the cultural, economic, and historic center of northeastern France. It is located only one hour by train from Paris, two hours from London, and three hours from Amsterdam. Weekends in Lille are generally free for independent travel.

ACADEMICS
Students will choose from one language course, as well as one elective for a total of 6 credits.* Both sections of FL 395 are taught in French. PS 341 and FL 216 are taught in English and will count as GEP credit. 
*Note: Upon successful complete of this study abroad program, courses will appear on students' academic records as transfer credit. Applicants should consult with their academic advisors to determine any effect on their degree program.

ACCOMMODATIONS
During the travel study tour, students are housed in a hotel and will receive breakfast daily. 
In Lille, students will be housed in university residence halls. During the week, a meal card will be provided for lunch and dinner in the University Cafeteria. On weekends, students are responsible for their own meals. There will also be some group dinners provided by the European Summer Program (ESP) and NC State.

 
FLIGHT INFORMATION
The Director will notify students of the required arrival date and time. Transportation will be arranged in France for students, so it is highly recommend students arrive when requested.  Additionally, the Director will reserve seats on a specific flight, which students are encouraged to book. However, students will be required to make any deposits/payments directly to the travel agent. Students may also choose to make their own arrival arrangements. 
 
EXCURSIONS & EVENTS
The program in Lille includes many social and cultural activities. Planned field trips during the stay in Lille include visits of WWI sites, a day trip to Brussels, “the capital of Europe,” and a half-day trip to Bruges, the “Venice of the North.” There will be an option to visit Paris and the WWII D-Day beaches of Normandy (at an extra cost). In addition, students have several weekends free for personal travel.
 

FINANCIAL AID & SCHOLARSHIPS
Financial aid is generally available to help qualified NC State students meet the expenses of NC State study abroad programs. Students from other institutions should contact their home institution study abroad and financial aid offices for information. For additional funding, NC State students should consider applying for a study abroad scholarship from the Study Abroad Office.
 

The University reserves the right to alter the program format and/or costs in case of conditions beyond its control. If the program is canceled or a student withdraws, a refund of program costs may not be available in all cases. Please refer to the Study Abroad Office Withdrawal and Refund Policy for details. Questions may be directed to: study_abroad@ncsu.edu.
