Spend a semester or year in Angers, France! The Université Catholique de l'Ouest offers courses in French language alongside French students. This program is for students in all levels of French language.
COURSES AND CREDITS
A list of the courses offered at UCO-CIDEF is available in the CIDEF brochure. Students applying to this program should plan to meet with the appropriate academic advisors to help determine course selection and to seek the necessary course approval(s). Students will take a placement test upon arrival. Available courses depend on the placement level.
All students will be registered by the Study Abroad Office as full-time students during their semester abroad, which is 12 hours for undergraduate students and 9 hours for graduate students. Undergraduate students must return with the equivalent of at least 12 hours of credit on their host university transcript (9 hours for graduate students). Students can take additional hours and are not limited to the minimum full-time requirement while abroad. All courses are graded on an ABCDF scale. There is no Pass/Fail.
Students have the option of a home stay, foyer (off-campus dormitory), or independent arrangements. UCO-CIDEF will arrange a home stay for students upon submitting the "Fiche de Souhaits" with living and meal preferences. If dormitory-style living is preferred, choose a foyer below or at the UCO Housing Website. Some are only for women or only for men, so students should research each foyer. It is the student's responsibility to contact the foyer of their choice and reserve a room for the semester or year. Payment is made directly to the foyer, and rooms fill up quickly, so reserve them early.
Here is the UCO-CIDEF Housing Form Housing form 2018-2019.pdf
Some students prefer to make independent arrangements, though it is not recommended.

For the UCO-CIDEF exchange, students are responsible for paying:
- Current, full-time, UM tuition (including non-resident fees, if applicable)
- UM Study Abroad fee (includes the cost for international health insurance)
- Housing costs (details and payment are usually handled between the student and the host university)
- Travel expenses, books and supplies, personal living costs, passport and visa fees (all the responsibility of the student)
- Students studying for longer than 90 days must also purchase French health insurance(Securité sociale). The cost varies but is generally around $300 per semester.
Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing to study abroad and must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA. Additional or more stringent requirements may apply depending on the program.
In general, financial aid will apply to UM study abroad programs. All students should review the study abroad information on the Financial Aid Office website. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with a financial aid advisor to discuss how aid packages apply to study abroad. Third party scholarships may also be available for specific programs, so students should discuss study abroad early and often with the Study Abroad Office and the Financial Aid Office.
For current tuition costs, the Office of the Bursar provides a tuition estimator.
