COURSES

Here is the list of courses available in English at the IAE Clermont Auvergne - School of Management at bachelor’s and master’s levels.

 / 1

The list corresponds to the 2019-2020 offer, there might be some slight changes next year, students will receive later the updated list when available; Students may though prepare their Learning Agreement with these documents.

Students are welcome to select courses in various levels (bachelor first year, second year, third year, master first year or second year), but this means that courses might overlap if they were selected from different timetables. We have no knowledge of the timetables before September; We thus cannot help in this matter. Should this situation occur, then the students’ advisor at UCA will help them find other courses corresponding to their study project, and they will amend their LA accordingly, with the agreement of their home university.
Our French-taught course offer at Bachelor's and Master's level is available under these links:

Licence Gestion
Masters

The university also proposes, but only for Erasmus exchange students, classes of French as a Foreign Language (FLE) for free. Students will have to register as soon as they arrive in Clermont-Ferrand. More details will be given to selected students.
UCA also proposes a vast range of courses taught in English, our catalogue is online

LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS

The IAE Clermont Auvergne - School of Management offers courses taught in French and in English. Aminimum B2 level is demanded in the selected teaching language. Proof of proficiency may be a DELF, TCF, TOEIC, TOEFL score or a signed and stamped letter by a French or English language professor of the students' home institution, attesting their capacity of studying in French/ English.

ACCOMMODATION

Students are offered the possibility of booking a room at the CROUS (dorms). If they wish to do so, they have to complete the reservation form online, sign it and upload it.

Please note that contracts for campus accommodation are based on academic dates and it is not possible to change or adapt them. Once the student have accepted and signed the document, it is not possible to amend the contract.

Important: we cannot ensure availability; it may happen that the students' request is not satisfied for lack of rooms. In this case, we will send to students a list of private residences and websites where they can find housing.

ARRIVAL AND WELCOME DAY

It is compulsory that incoming students arrive by the beginning of September for the entire academic year and the first/fall semester (S1) and by the beginning of January for the second/spring semester (S2).
