Choosing Courses Abroad
This program does not have pre-approved classes. It is your responsibility to select courses and get them approved for transfer credit. To facilitate this process, you will complete the Petition for Transfer of Credit (PTC) Form. You will have access to the PTC form when you open an application.
You are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to look at this institution’s courses ahead of time to see how they will match up to your Mason degree requirements. Talk to your academic advisor about what courses you will need to receive credit for during your time abroad to stay on-track for your degree. When looking at courses keep in mind that course schedules can change. We recommend having twice as many courses approved as necessary.
Students may apply to live in a student residence, Residence la Marne, located near the university. Students can choose between a two-room apartment or a studio-1 room apartment. The cost of housing is payable directly to the residence.
Options for Additional Cultural Expriences
Strasbourg is located close to three airports (Baden-Baden, Frankfurt Hahn, Euroairport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg) which offer low cost flights with Ryanair, Easyjet, Germanwings, Vo- lotea and Vueling. Shuttles or trains depart from Strasbourg for those airports in Germany and Switzerland. If you plan in advance, you can travel to London, Rome or Barcelona at a very low price.
