The ESCP Europe Summer Session typically offers over a dozen elective courses across a variety of disciplines. Classes meet twice each week in 3-hour sessions. The 2013 course information will be announced in February 2013; click here to view a list of courses from the 2012 Summer Session.
Please note the ESCP Europe courses are based on the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS); AU credit equivalents can be determined by dividing in half. They should work closely with their Academic Advisor to determine how the courses will be applied toward their degree requirements. Courses are taught in either English or French as noted on the course list.
ESCP Europe has no housing on campus. Please see the ESCP Europe Guide for information on housing options near campus.
Passport & Visa
Once accepted into the program, students are solely responsible for obtaining a passport and any visas or other immigration documents required for their stay in France, including any related fees. The Kogod Office of Global Learning Programs will support students in this endeavor with any required letters from the school.
Students should visit the Consulate of France in Washington, DC as well as the Embassy website for their home country to validate entry and exit requirements. You will also be able to find visa information in the 2012-2013 ESCP Europe Guide.
Details for U.S. citizens regarding these requirements and other pertinent information can be found on the U.S. State Department website. U.S. citizens are required to hold a valid passport, but do not need a visa for a stay of this duration.

- Tuition: Costs for tuition are based on the number of credits, calculated per the Summer tuition and fee schedule posted on the Student Accounts website. Tuition costs, along with the Student Technology Fee, will be billed by and paid directly to AU.
