V. International Study
Guelph students have many opportunities to enrich their academic French studies through varied programs. They may choose to spend semesters 5 and 6 in Nice, France, with the Canadian Third Year in Nice program (not to be confused with the Universite Canadienne en France program), sponsored in part by the University of Guelph. In this program, Guelph students take courses at the University of Nice along with regular French students. Another possibility is spending one or more semesters at a university in Quebec, in which case they are eligible for the monitor program (financial support in exchange for teaching conversational English) as well as several bursaries.
Francophone students at Guelph are also eligible for the monitor program, teaching conversational French locally. French Studies graduates may apply to the Canada France Exchange program which allows them to spend one full year in France, teaching conversational English in French high schools, as well as pursuing their studies at a French university if they so wish.
