ILCF Lyon has established exchange programmes with a network of associations, some of which were created by French students at UCLy, promoting dialogues between French and international students. Some examples of highly active associations:
ONLYLYON Ambassadors are lovers of Lyon who reside in the city itself, as well as elsewhere in France and in other countries. They include entrepreneurs, managers, CEOs, academics, researchers, employees, athletes and celebrities from the cultural world… all of whom have decided to join the Ambassadors’ network to help promote Lyon abroad during their business trips and personal travels. Lyon’s Ambassadors help to extend Lyon’s global influence and give it its legitimate place on the international scene.
Lyon International, a warm and original welcome for international students living in “Greater Lyon”!
“Lyon International” is an association created 35 years ago by the Young Economic Chamber of Lyon and has been a partner of the Lyon Catholic University for many years. It brings together 400 families in the city of Lyon who offer students arriving from all corners of the world the opportunity to dine with them at their family table at no cost. You will be offered the chance to participate in a number of festive events over the course of the year including an international buffet, a tour of the Beaujolais region, the rally of painted walls, etc.
As a cultural evening of friendship and sharing, this is an opportunity which should be seized on your arrival.
Chinese Corner Association
The goal of the Chinese Corner Association is to promote Sino-French linguistic and cultural exchanges at the Catholic University of Lyon and, in particular, between the ESDES School of Management, the ESTRI School of Translation, Interpretation and Intercultural Mediation, and the ILCF.
