This noteworthy mobility of students demonstrates the progress of Franco-Ghanaian Higher Education Cooperation as KNUST
and the French engineering school EPF established a partnership in 2017 which seeks to increase frequent Ghanaian
participation in such programmes not only for students but also for teaching staff. The 7 people are thus the first batch to
benefit from the programme through the concerted efforts of both universities.

The group will spend the first part of the programme at the ESTP campus in Cachan and complete the second part with the EPF on their campus in Troyes. While there, they will take a series of courses on various fields of architecture, civil engineering and urban planning. In addition, they will take a French language course to boost their French skills, and experience France through excursions to tourist sites and industries of academic and cultural value.
This summer school is a great opportunity for the students to acquire cutting-edge scientific approaches and perspectives on architecture and city planning while also discovering the culture of France. It could also encourage them to choose France as a destination for further studies in the domains.
