We have the pleasure of inviting all interested Academic staff to our Erasmus International Week to be held at the IUT of Valence from 3–7  December 2018.


This international week will be the opportunity to bring together lecturers from our partner universities with our own students and staff. We will get to know one another better by sharing knowledge, experiences and good practice.

It will also be the opportunity to present to you our new certificate in international tourism management ‘French Art de Vivre’, a course that takes place each autumn semester and is taught fully in English.


During the week, we would like to explore and discuss with you how to promote sustainable tourism and local economic development.


In accordance with the Teaching Staff Mobility programme, we would like to invite you to give lectures or workshops in any business-related field of study e.g. marketing, management, company strategy, finance but also in IT …. or simply to improve our students’ business-related language skills. One of our important aims is to promote mobility by giving our students “international exposure” through lectures and presentations by our partner Universities.


The week includes excursions when you will have the opportunity to discover places of interest around Valence and meet with professionals from the local tourism sector.


Attached, you will find the provisional programme and the application form.

Please submit your registration by 15 October 2018. Information regarding accommodation will then be sent to you.


Feel free to forward this invitation to your colleagues who might be interested in the event.


We are very much looking forward to welcoming you in Valence in December 2018!


Kind regards,

The International Office of IUT Valence
