Selected students in mechanical engineering at Grove City College have the opportunity to spend the fall semester of their junior year studying at our campus in Nantes, France.
All students maintain normal Grove City College student status and financial support while studying and living at the center. The all-inclusive cost is very reasonable (approximately $290 above standard annual tuition and room and board fees for 2019). The facility has classroom and dining facilities, high-speed wireless support, and full-time Grove City College engineering faculty in residence. While there is no language requirement, the program introduces students to the basics of French to further enrich their experience. The program is run through the Stan and Karen Johnson Office of Global Programs at Grove City College.
Nantes is the seventh largest city in France and a major center for industry and education. It is just two hours by train from Paris, and only a single day’s travel from Spain, England, Germany, Italy, and much of the rest of Europe. The affiliated Universities of Nantes make up one of the largest university systems in France with an enrollment of 50,000 students.
