It is not required from exchange students to follow the tutorials associated with the courses they chose.
On top of the courses available at the Law Faculty, the International Relations Office and the Literature department offer a number of courses to exchange students, mainly French language courses (ECTS credits are also attached to those courses):
A postgraduate student teaches methodology to exchange students once week and helps them with the difficulties they might encounter.
Each exchange student on exchange is associated with a French student throughout the duration of the exchange (“buddy” system).
All exchange students are automatically enrolled in the French Law program. This Diploma in French Law is recognized officially by Savoie Mont Blanc University only.
The program is open to students who have passed the equivalent of the French “baccalauréat” and are currently enrolled at a partner university of Savoie Mont Blanc University to graduate in law.
For each term, the Law Faculty issues a certificate stating the name of the courses which the exchange student attended, the number of hours for each course and the marks.
The diploma is granted if the marks exceed 10/20, on average.
After successfully passing the diploma, it is possible to enrol in a law program at the Law Faculty to become a French law graduate. Enrolment is submitted to the application examination by the Faculty’s committee on pedagogy. The committee decides which year of the “Licence” (one, two or three) or the master programs (one or two) the candidate may access.
