SUPPORT SYSTEMS TO ENCOURAGE SUCCESS
Université Lumière Lyon 2 has made the commitment to introduce measures that limit the drop-out rate and provide support for students until the completion of their courses and their successful entry into the work world.
A number of measures coexist. They are intended for all students, as well as specific segments of the student population identified as requiring extra support. The aim is to inform, welcome, provide support and offer students the opportunity to change course, to ensure that the transition from secondary school to university is as smooth as possible.
Student representatives in Lyon’s secondary schools; specific classes organised to raise awareness of higher education teaching practices among students in their penultimate year of secondary school.
A two-week induction period organised in September that gives new students an opportunity to get to know the university and get involved in their studies. More informations on the Integration Period 2015
Classes on university and discipline-related methodology for all students; personalised support and discipline-specific support organised for students experiencing difficulty following a call for proposals; individual support for students who have taken technological and vocational baccalaureates by master’s students studying the same subject; closer supervision for certain courses; a one-year prep course for certain courses.
All first-time undergraduate students and students retaking their first year are able to change course at any time during the academic year; a semestre rebond (“rebound semester”) is organised in spring to prepare for the change.
SUPPORT FOR ENTRY INTO THE WORK WORLD
The BAIP (Bureau d’aide à l’insertion professionnelle – Job market entry assistance office) organises meetings between students and companies and organisations in the form of job-introduction days and job-search days. These meetings are intended to familiarise students with various working environments and provide job-search techniques to facilitate their search and highlight the skills they have acquired during their time at university.
ONGOING INNOVATION IN TEACHING
In order to promote educational innovation and improve the quality of teaching, a call for proposals is organised each year. Dedicated teams are involved in creating and running innovative initiatives and/or strengthening the support provided to students.
