Channel islands delegation visiting UniCaen


Education department in Jersey and external relations department in Guernsey have arranged to take four teachers from secondary schools in Jersey and one officer from ER depat in Guernsey to Caen on 7 July to show them around the university. The purpose of the visit is to give the teachers real experience of the university, so they can confidently explain to their students in Jersey what it will be like to study there. This is part of the great partnership agreement that the Education department is about to finalise with the University of Caen. Not only Jersey students would benefit of a proficiency in French but it would also give them the opportunity to enroll into European Programmes and study across Europe and the world for one year as part of their curriculum. The fees of the university are also very attractive and UniCaen also provides cheap accommodation options within the campus.

The teachers also visited the ESAM (Ecole Supérieure d’Arts et Médias) with is a dedicated university to Arts. Registration are open to all students from across the globe and the ESAM have recently teamed up with UniCaen to provide a preparation one-year accelerated French course focused on Arts aiming to help students reaching a good level of French to pass the entry exam to ESAM. An opportunity that may be interesting for CI students willing to study arts.
