In the framework of our Erasmus Plus International Credit Mobility projects (Key Action 107), ISA Lille is thrilled to welcome 34 new students for academic exchange. Thanks to funding from the European Commission, students from our 11 partner universities in countries outside the European Union are able to experience the French way of learning and living.
Since 2016, ISA Lille has managed over 60 student mobility periods within the framework of our Erasmus Plus KA107 projects. This year, the international cooperation continues with 34 incoming exchange students from our KA107 partners. Meet the students who are joining us from partner universities on 4 continents this year:
Two students coming from Shenyang Agricultural University are joining our Environmental Science and Agricultural Economics, Marketing and Management programs for the first semester. SYAU is a top Chinese university of Agricultural Science, Engineering, Economics and Management.
One of our most privileged partners is Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana. Working closely with the faculty at KNUST, we have developed a 3+2 program, allowing Ghanaian students to discover our Master of Science and Engineering programs through academic exchange. This semester we are welcoming 7 KNUST students in Food Science, Environmental Science and Agricultural Economics, Marketing & Management.
Joining us from two Kazakh partner universities – Al Farabi Kazakh National University in Almaty and the L. N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University in Astana – are 5 students in Food Science, Environmental Science and Agricultural Science. These top universities are both among the largest research institutions in Kazakhstan.
Two students from our major partner in Mexico, Iberoamericana University in Mexico City, joined us for a year of exchange starting last semester. Although Regina and Cecilia were already familiar with ISA, they were still learned a lot during the Welcome Session! IBERO is one of Mexico’s top private institutions.
Eight students from our Russian partners - St Petersburg State Agrarian University and Timiryazev Agricultural Academy in Moscow – are taking part in each of our four Master programs: Environmental Science, Food Science, Agricultural Science and Agricultural Economics, Marketing and Management. Both universities are the oldest higher education institutions and leaders of agricultural education in Russia.

By welcoming students from a diverse array of partner universities, ISA Lille hopes to provide an important opportunity for study abroad to visiting students, as well as internationalize our own learning outcomes and institutional identity. We are proud to work closely with these reputable institutions and grateful to the European Commission for funding these important cooperative projects that help to bridge cultural gaps and create a new global outlook on the issues we tackle in our academic programs.
