Quality, experience, diversity

Audencia Business School has a long history of welcoming international exchange students. Our students come from more than 260 partner universities in over 60 countries. You will be accepted into our vibrant community and quickly fall in love with the beautiful city of Nantes.
We offer an extensive catalogue of courses taught in both English and French, so you can take advantage of our outstanding educational quality and experienced professors. We take your needs very seriously, and our dedicated team is here to help you with any personal, academic or intercultural matters before or during your stay here.
We take part in the European Commission’s Erasmus programme and adhere to the principals of Erasmus for Higher Education (French).

In addition to this, we have recently been selected to coordinate projects under the new Erasmus International Credit Mobility programme, allowing students from outside Europe to apply for additional grants.

We offer study abroad opportunities to students from our partner universities. Here is a simple outline of how to apply:

  1. Ask the international office at your home institution to nominate you for the exchange. All the information they need to do this is in our fact sheet.
  2. Once we’ve received your nomination, we’ll send you a link to the online application. You may begin your online application only after being nominated. You can save the application and make changes before submitting.
  3. Once you’ve completed your application, we will be in touch with all the information you’ll need, such as your acceptance letter.


We look forward to welcoming you to one of our beautiful campuses. Get ready for your trip by reading about student life at Audencia.

Orientation

During your first two days as an exchange student at Audencia, you will take part in an orientation session. It is very important that you attend, because we will cover valuable topics including:

  • Guided tour of campus
  • General information about the school and its programmes
  • Cultural seminar
  • Administrative processes and formalities (e.g., visas, social security, erasmus)
  • Career advising services and student associations
  • Practical help from representatives of banks, mobile phone companies and city transportation services


You’ll also meet Audencia’s International Connection Team, a group of French students who will help you adjust to life at Audencia. They are in charge of cultural events, field trips and language exchanges between you and French students!
