Seventeen students from a range of academic disciplines undertook a week's 'Erasmus Taster Trip' to Lille, France, led by Dr Bryce Evans (Director of the European Institute) and Faye Sharp (International Hub).
The students enjoyed guided tours around Lille and its surrounds, including the famous First World War battlefields of Flanders and some of the city's many museums and art galleries.
In 2016 Liverpool Hope University and l’Université Catholique de Lille formed a strategic alliance around teaching and research, enabling staff and student exchange, cross-disciplinary research projects, publications, joint masters degrees and the co-supervision of PhD students.
The students chosen for the trip were those who had expressed a strong desire to undertake an Erasmus exchange to Lille during the course of their undergraduate study. The trip also helped students prepare for Erasmus exchange in France by enabling them to experience a day on campus at l’Université Catholique de Lille involving French lessons, meeting French students including their counterparts planning to come to Liverpool, and touring the campus.
