France Excellence Summer School 2016
In 2016, the master's scholarship programme France Excellence changed, becoming the France Excellence Summer School. Initiated by the French Embassy in China, its goal was to select the best Chinese students in key subjects and give them the opportunity to follow an in-depth study programme in France.
2016 Summer School in mathematics and statistics
The first France Excellence Summer School in mathematics and statistics took place in Rennes from 27th June to 17th July 2016. It was the opportunity for participants to meet eminent researchers who, once they had obtained their master's degree in China, may be able to help them prepare their future PhD project.
Students participated in final year master's courses taught in English by professors from renowned French universities. The programme included practical work sessions, initiation to research modules, French lessons and cultural visits.
The summer school was open to Chinese students who were master's students in a Chinese university with proven excellent academic results.
