Exchanges with the American Studies Center at the University of Warsaw
We have recently established an exchange program at the BA & MA level with the American Studies Center at the University of Warsaw. If you are interested in studying American Studies (including history, philosophy, social theory, political throughout and other subjects that we don’t offer at Lausanne), please ask me about it. Here is the link for the American Studies Center:
And here is the information about it on the UNIL mobility database website:
Exchanges to North American Universities
Students are invited to come see me about planning their year abroad at a North American University.
Please note: you should have your TOEFL results before you apply in December, so if you would like to go abroad in the Fall of 2011, make an appointment to take the TOEFL immediately! The Centre de Langues can help you prepare for it.
Teaching in the U.S.
Lausanne students have the possibility to teach for a year in the U.S. as interns through the Amity program. This means you help a teacher in the classroom while living with a host family. There is no regular salary but your food and accommodation is taken care of, and you have a small monthly allowance for other expenses. This is a great experience for perfecting your English, learning about another culture, and acquiring teaching experience and insight from another school system than what you know here. It also fulfills the HEP requirement for a linguistic stay abroad. There is no specific deadline but you should contact me by the end of the fall semester (or no later than January) for the following school year.
For more information about the teaching internships in the US, come see me or click on the link below. The application must be given to me.
For PHD and finished MA students:
The English Department offers the opportunity to teach at SUNY Buffalo for a year as a lecturer while attending classes and working with professors. You receive a salary of $13,200 for the academic year plus a scholarship of 8,000 frs if you are a PHD student or 5,000 frs if you have a MA. Our students have taught English composition, World Classics, or French language. You can look on the UNIL mobility database for more information. Also you should contact me if you have any questions. The deadline for applications is February 20.
