Mobility and/or Internationalisation outlook

Welcoming foreign students
Master's in Linguistics students come from far and wide. More than half of our student body is international: from France, Italy, Armenia, Turkey, Poland, Rwanda, Burundi, Japan, Mexico, Algeria, etc. This rich cultural and linguistic diversity is a real bonus for both the linguistics lecturers (particularly in courses such as semantics, lexicology and contrastive linguistics) and the other students. We do our utmost to extend a personal welcome to all our students. Alongside the courses taught in French, various courses are available in English, Dutch, German or Spanish. Students can opt to undergo assessments and write their thesis in English.
