You are a foreign student and would like to study at the Faculty of Law, Economics and Social Sciences of Tours (University of Tours), under an individual registration or an agreement, for the 2020/2021 academic year. We are delighted to welcome you.

Due to the health crisis that has been hitting the whole world and the decisions that will be taken by Europe in the coming weeks (see the website https://data.consilium.europa.eu/doc/document/ST-9208-2020-INIT/fr/pdf), 3 scenarios may happen :

Hypothesis 1 - the Covid-19 crisis is over. Europe remove all restrictions. The academic year in semester 1 during the autumn can be done entirely face-to-face. In this case, your visit to Tours is possible as soon as September. You will follow your selected courses.

Hypothesis 2 - the Covid-19 crisis is not quite over but the outlook is positive. There exist still some restrictions to access the territory. If you are not able to be in Tours in September and you arrive later in the semester, we will not be able to offer you our courses remotely. Only a few courses in English and very limited online classes would be accessible.

Hypothesis 3 - the Covid-19 crisis is still topical and worries are great. You won’t be able to enter the territory. However, the semester 1 during the autumn can be followed in an hybrid way. Some of the students will take the face-to-face lectures. The others will follow them live and remotely. You will be able to follow the courses live and remotely but at the Paris time slot. There will be no delayed retransmission.

We therefore recommend the greatest vigilance on your mobility in the semester 1 during the autumn in terms of educational content and arrival times in France.
Looking forward to welcoming you at the University of Tours
