Avant de choisir vos cours, retenez bien ces informations :

  • Les étudiants Erasmus+ entrants doivent sélectionner au minimum 50 % de leurs ECTS à la Faculté de Sciences Économiques et de Gestion.
  • Les 50 % (au maximum) des ECTS restants peuvent être sélectionnés dans d’autres facultés
    -> Exemple : je viens étudier les sciences économiques à la FSEG, mais je souhaite aussi suivre un cours de marketing à l’EM Business School.

Attention, vous pouvez suivre des cours dans d’autres facultés uniquement si ces facultés sont d’accord ! Il faut également prendre en compte que choisir des cours dans une autre faculté peut provoquer des conflits d’emploi du temps.

Before choosing the courses you would like to attend, please remember that :

  • Exchange students have to choose at least 50 % of their ECTS credits at the Faculty of Economics and Management.
  • The remaining 50 % (maximum) can be chosen in another faculty.
    -> For example: I am going to study economics at the FSEG, but I would like to follow one course of marketing at the EM Business School.

Warning: you can follow any course in other faculties,  but we will have to  get the agreement of those faculties for quota reasons. You also need to be aware that choosing courses in other faculties can result in timetable conflicts.

For courses at the EM Business School, there is a special application procedure, where you have to be respectful of deadlines
