Requesting a gap period

 

A gap period allows a student to put their studies on hold for a period of between 6 months and a year. Students can thus acquire some professional experience in France or abroad (work placement), take a course in a different area of study, launch their own business, carry out a period of civic service or volunteer work...

Nice University provides access to gap periods of one university semester (see below for specific cases) or of one university year. A gap period cannot straddle two university years.
Nice University has put a cap on the number of gap periods allowed during university studies:
- one gap period per cycle. A second gap period can be allocated for students who have validated a bachelor's degree-level diploma,
- a third may be granted to students who have validated a Master's degree-level diploma.

Who can apply?
All students enrolled at Nice University with the exception of:
- those who are enrolled for the first time (one year of enrolment is required before students can enter into a gap period project),
- students who are enrolled in the first year of the first university cycle.
