Lycoming College signs agreement with French university for exchange program

Students from Lycoming College now have the ability to study at the Université Grenoble Alpes in Grenoble, France as part of an exchange agreement between the two schools. The agreement also enables students from UGA to study at Lycoming College.

The agreement encompasses all three universities in Grenoble that have recently merged as Université Grenoble Alpes. The agreement greatly expands the options for students from both schools, which formerly had been limited to Lycoming students studying French at one of the UGA schools, the Centre Universitaire d’Études Francaise. Lycoming students can now study business, science, language, literature and more in either English or French.

“This agreement is part of our mission to expand opportunities for Lycoming students to study abroad,” said Philip Witherup, Lycoming’s coordinator of study abroad and travel courses. “Enhanced academic experiences like study abroad prepare students personally and professionally for the next stage of their lives after graduation — whether that is applying for jobs or graduate school.”

Students from either school can choose to spend one or two semesters at the exchange partner. Lycoming students will be able to take courses at UGA in English or French.
