When to go?

You can immerse yourself for a summer in a country whose language you're studying with travel assistance. In fact, Inalco distributes part of the funds allocated to the FSDIE (Fonds de solidarité et de développement des initiatives étudiantes), in the form of financial aid. Intended to cover the cost of transport to the destination country, this aid enables you to take a linguistic and cultural trip during your summer university vacation, for a minimum duration of 14 days.

Please note, it is imperative that you return no later than the day before the university pre-start week, or no later than August 31 of the current year, in the event that the trip comes at the end of your studies at Inalco.

For whom?

This offer is aimed at students enrolled in the Introductory Diploma, Intensive Diploma, DLC1, DLC2, DLC3 (face-to-face), Licences L1, L1+, Tempo, L2, L3 or M1 at Inalco. To apply, you must have already completed one year of studies at Inalco.

This assistance enables you to travel to a country whose language or culture you are learning. First-time travel to these countries is encouraged. No minimum language level is required. Nevertheless, don't hesitate to get in touch with your teachers to find out which trip is best suited to your studies. The various departments will be consulted for the selection of applications.

It is not necessary to be a scholarship holder on social criteria to benefit from travel assistance. However, scholarship holders receive an additional 10%.

Watch out!

This aid is not an ERASMUS+ or international mobility aid. It cannot be combined with ERASMUS+ or international mobility aid. If you are planning to go to a partner university for a semester or a year of study, you should contact the International Mobility Office and the ERASMUS+ team, as travel assistance cannot be granted.

Travel assistance does not fund family stays either.
