The main objective of the Forum was to give ESPEME 1 and 2 students a chance to discover the different destinations and exchange options available to them over the next two years. In a relaxed environment, they had the chance to discuss the subject with ESPEME 4 students who were on international exchanges last year, and to benefit from their real-life experiences in the destinations concerned. International students currently on exchange at ESPEME also joined them to present their country of origin and their home university.
Thanks to a wonderful effort by both local and visiting students, 20 countries and 26 partner universities were represented in each campus. Both Nice and Lille campuses welcomed around 300 students each to discover the wide range of destinations on offer. All participants appeared to leave the Forum feeling satisfied, with some having relived their past exchange experiences, and others having envisioned what their own experiences might be in the future!
Needless to say that the Forum was a big success and that everyone benefitted greatly from their encounter with the representatives of each institution.
Previously to the International Forum, ESPEME 2 students attended an Exchange Presentation meeting in Nice and Lille on November 29th, in order to learn all about their exchange options and selection process for next year.
