Studying in Talloires

The academic programs at the Tufts European Center in Talloires provide students with a unique opportunity to gain a wide range of academic and personal skills. Courses are designed to take advantage of the local region in order to enhance classroom learning. Students live throughout the greater Annecy area with host families, which provides them the opportunity to experience local cuisine, customs, and family life firsthand. We hope you will join us in Talloires!

We will begin accepting registrations and applications for Summer 2019 programs on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 at 9:00 am. Registrations must be submitted to the Tufts European Center Office at 108 Packard Avenue, Medford, MA 02155.

We currently offer three academic programs for university and high school students.

Tufts in Talloires: May 14 – June 28, 2019
Open to undergraduates at Tufts and other universities, Tufts in Talloires offers university students the opportunity to spend six weeks studying in the French Alps. Students select two credit-bearing courses from a wide selection of Tufts undergraduate offerings, most of which are taught in English. French is not required to learn from Tufts’ esteemed faculty in this unique setting. Students reside with local host families to experience French daily life first hand.

Tufts in Annecy: June 30 – July 27, 2019
College students and adults who want to improve their beginner or intermediate French language skills will find Annecy, the "Venice of France," an inspiring environment. Classes are taught at a French language institute in Annecy by native French speakers who are experts in developing speaking, listening, grammar, writing, and reading skills. Residing with a French family facilitates language acquisition and enhances the exploration of French customs and culture. Tufts students will earn one full credit for a Tufts French 1, 2, 3, or 4 class.

Tufts Summit: June 30 – July 26, 2019
For rising high school juniors and seniors, a college-level course on international relations is only part of an exploration into the complexities of world cultures and global issues. French classes are complemented by living with a local host family, and experiencing French culture first hand. Extracurricular activities include hiking, swimming and a variety of other outdoor activities.
