Lille is perfectly situated for the avid traveler. Only 30 minutes from Brussels, students can also reach Paris in an hour and London in an hour and 25 minutes. Travel is convenient thanks to Lille's status as an international railway hub. Lille also offers a tandem course for credit in which students have the opportunity for intercultural exchange through a French speaking partner.

Students with a lower-intermediate French level (B1 Level) have the opportunity to take courses in English from the MA philosophy department (Philosophy majors only) as well as the English language and literature department (all students). Two French as a foreign language courses are offered every semester: an intensive immersion course (one week) upon arrival, and an extensive 24 hour course over the semester (2h/week). Three different levels are available depending on the student's proficiency in French.

English Programs are offered in the following departments:

Masters of Contemporary Philosophy: 

Find detailed information on the M2 in Contemporary Philosophy program.
While this is a master's level program, upper-level undergraduate students with a background in philosophy may take courses from this program. 

Department of English Studies:

This department offers a wide variety of culture and linguistics courses for students in English. Courses include but are not limited to: Women on Page & Screen; Discovering British Newspapers; Renaissance, Revolution, and Restoration; and more. Many of the courses designed to improve non-native English speaking skills are closed to native-English speakers, so students should pay particular attention to course availability. Translation classes are also open to students with a minimum B2 proficiency in both French and English. You can locate more courses and program information through the Department of English Studies.

You can also use the Guide des études

The department of English Studies also offers master's level seminars in literature, history and culture, for a higher number of credits. These classes are popular among international students. Use the Guide des Etudes tab for Etudes anglo-américaines and Etudes anglo-irlandaises.

Department of Applied Foreign Languages:

Other Academic Conditions

Like many of the ISEP France universities, Université de Lille offers a number of program options in English for students with lower French levels. Students should keep in mind that the English programs at Université de Lille still require students to have a beginner to intermediate level of French in order to navigate daily life in France. Previous students with lower French levels have struggled to understand the complexities of program information delivered in French, as orientation and program communication will be in French. ISEP meetings with the coordinator however will be conducted in English.
