Across its 5 schools, Excelia Group provides qualification-awarding programmes that have an international dimension and can be personalised for our students destined to become the managers of tomorrow. Thanks to a choice of start dates, students can join these tailor-made study programmes later in the academic year: in November, January or February.
A choice of start dates for Excelia Group's study programmes
The majority of Excelia Group students start their academic year in September. However, not all students are available to start at this time. Some are still abroad, on internships or study trips. Others are still trying to finalise their choice of higher education and professional future. Precisely because of such situations, the most prestigious business schools decided to introduce other start dates during the year. Excelia Group, ranked among the top 100 Business Schools in the world by the Financial Times, has naturally followed suit.
Several study programmes at Excelia Group offer different start dates: November and January for La Rochelle Business School and La Rochelle Tourism & Hospitality School, February for the Bachelor Foundation Year. Students who opt for these alternative start dates follow a personalised programme, with fast-track courses. Excelia Group's faculty and support teams make every effort to provide tailor-made support services for these students who join our programmes later in the academic year.
NOVEMBER START DATE
Students who decide to join Year 1 of the Bachelor in Business in November will only have two months of lessons to catch up on. However, the timetable of internships and humanitarian projects at the end of each year (from May to July) remains the same for everyone.
JANUARY START DATE
Students in Year 3 of the Bachelor in Business or the Bachelor in Tourism and Hospitality Management or those in Year 1 of the MSc will join on a Fast Track. They have lessons until May/June and will then undertake their company-based internships, in France or abroad, for 3 or 4 months. They will therefore validate their academic year in just one semester.
Excelia Group is used to managing the personalised educational path of each student. This ensures that you get the help and support you need as part of your study programme.
