Located in the Normandy region not far from the D-Day beaches and the English Channel, the Université de Caen offers courses for a full immersion experience or French language and culture courses for international students at the Département de Formations en Langues. Students studying in Caen for a full-year with a high level of French have the opportunity to teach English in local middle or high schools.

Students with a B2 language level can fully immerse themselves in the French language by taking regular university courses in French alongside local students. Students can choose from a variety of fields to design their own schedule. French language courses are also available to students throughout the semester and full year. 

ISEP students also have the opportunity to take courses in English at IAE Caen, the UNICAEN graduate School of Business and Management. Students interested in this option can take a full course load in English, or students at the B2 French language level can take a mix of regular university courses in French plus courses in English from the IAE.
