The University of Pau and Adour Regions (South West of France) is holding a one-week summer school in English on its Atlantic Coast campus just outside Biarritz (July 13 -July 17). The school is open to students and others interested in a unique « Anglo-Saxon » academic experience in an exceptional setting (beaches are 10 minutes away from campus).

Four courses will be taught by talented and enthusiastic professors recruited specifically from English-language universities:

Classes will be held over five mornings with a maximum of 25 students per course. Mornings will be divided between lectures and round tables, student presentations and workshops. Student participation will be emphasized. Films and videos will be shown during some courses.

Details are available on the school web site where students can register and pay online : http://bcmss.sciencesconf.org/.

The school has arranged very attractive rates for various types of accommodation nearby.

Each morning of classes will end with a buffet lunch during which students and instructors from different courses can mix and mingle. Afternoons are left free for sightseeing, leisure and beach activities. Three (optional) social events are planned :

– A visit to Biarritz for the fireworks display on July 14th (National Day, also known as « Bastille Day »).
