Spring Semester Exchange Programs

Choose from regular semester classes taught in French, or choose the spring semester in Nutritional Sciences option or the Water & Environmental Management program taught entirely in English.

UniLaSalle is located in the Picardie region, about an hour north of Paris. UniLaSalle offers five-year programs in several food and agriculture subjects.

Exchange students at LaSalle Beauvais will live on campus in single or shared rooms, and will eat at the university restaurant. Shared kitchens are available for students who prefer to prepare some meals for themselves.
