Jalandhar: Aiming to provide global opportunities to students and members of staff as well, Lovely Professional University (LPU) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding ( MOU) with a French organisation ‘Alliance Française’. The collaboration will also help LPU students to prepare for international exam of French language ‘DELF’. In fact, DELF- DALF are diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education to prove the French-language skills of non-French candidates. With this MoU, studying in France becomes easier for LPU students. On being fluent in ‘French’, LPU students will have opportunity to go on higher education or exchange programmes with leading French Universities.
During MoU signing ceremony, between Alliance Française (Chandigarh) and Lovely Professional University, Director of Alliance Française Mr Sylvain Choin and Senior Dean of LPU School of Applied Medical Sciences Dr Monica Gulati were present and signed the important document for the mutual benefit. This remarkable alliance between these two prestigious institutions is not only going to help our students but faculty members of France as well, as they will be invited by Alliance Française (Chandigarh) to attend various teaching training programmes from time to time.
In this regard, Director, Division of International Affairs at LPU, Mr Aman Mittal informs: “We already have tie-ups with top French Institutions of high-learning including the INSEEC Business School and IMT Lille Douai- one of an IMT school of the leading group of engineering and management schools in France.” Mr Mittal added: “LPU provides wide opportunities to its students in 200+ international universities for student exchange and other mobility programmes. Every year hundreds of students from LPU go to the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, and Europe. These mutual collaborations are to enhance students’ learning by doing their programme at one of our partner institutions (optional). In this regard, scholarship based semester abroad programme is also available for meritorious students.”
