I really needed help in ensuring I was doing the methodology correctly, and having that kind of support was essential for me to succeed. It was a great reassurance to have that resource during the semester, to reread my work and check the methodology or to give initial advice on how to proceed with the assignment.

French methodology training is part of the academic support provided by CUPA. The French educational system is very different from what American students are used to. The intensive pre-session thoroughly prepares students for the expectations of university professors and allows them to assimilate a more research-based approach to coursework. The methodology training thus encourages students to take their analytical skills a step further and gain more perspective on their learning experience as active participants within the French academic environment. Throughout the semester, students continue to have access to office hours with CUPA’s methodology professors.
