These integration packages are designed to resolve housing, insurance and transfer issues etc. These packages also include refresher courses of French lessons and help with methodology to familiarise students with teaching and learning methods (note taking, relations with teachers, writing reports, oral presentation, personal work etc.).
There are three types of package, each with a separate objective:
- The Cultural Integration Package offers students personal assistance throughout the entire course
- The Linguistic Integration Package takes place before the main course of study,
- The Methodology Integration Package is at the beginning of the main course.
The "Cultural" and "Methodology" packages are included in the course and require no extra time.
The Cultural, Linguistic and Methodology Integration Packages are designed to boost foreign student's performance. They are offered by Network "n+i" on behalf of the schools, to help students.
Important: Students who fail the first year may be excluded from the programme or required to resit the first year.
This is a traumatic situation for both students and teachers. The network seeks to ensure that all students settle in well.
The Network "n+i" and the "n+i" schools therefore takes the initiative to enrol students on the packages that it deems key to the student's success.
