Partnerships Abroad

Partnerships Abroad

Most of the Collège de France’s international connections are established through the Professors’ teaching abroad and through the Visiting Professor programme, whereby leading scholars from abroad are invited to the Collège for short stays. These exchanges can and have led to the creation of Collège de France Visiting Chairs in institutions abroad.

These Visiting Chairs allow up to three Collège de France Professors to visit some institutions every year, depending on the Professors’ teaching and research commitments and on the local institutional context. The teaching delivered abroad, like that in Paris, is open to everyone, although it is designed to attract specialists in the various relevant fields as well as advanced PhD students. The teaching is most often part of the Collège de France Annual Teaching Plan as (enseignement statutaire). It can, however, also be provided within a more flexible framework (enseignement libre), which affords an opportunity to involve Emeritus Visiting Professors (Professeurs honoraires”) in the programme. As a rule, the Collège de France Visiting Chairs span four academic yearsunder specific partnership agreements.
