Radford University School of Communication and the Institut des Stratégies et Techniques de Communication (ISTC) in vibrant and dynamic Lille, France will be partnering together to offer a study abroad partnership for our students. Located only one hour north of Paris, ISTC is a Communication College that has been training communication professionals since 1991. 

Fall semester: early September to end of December. Spring semester: January to end of May latest. Please click on this link to access the ISTC Information Sheet.

Some classes offered include communication theory, crisis communication, public relations, interpersonal communication, and more that are very similar to the courses offered by Radford University. Tuition will be the same as it would be if you were studying at Radford University.

ISTC will help exchange students find accommodation with the aid of their neighbor, The Catholic University of Lille. Information about university residence halls can be found at

Applications for Fall 2024 semester are due by April 15, 2024. Applications for Spring 2025 semester are due by October 15, 2024. Students who are interested in applying to study at ISTC should contact the Education Abroad Coordinator in the McGlothlin Center for Global Education and Engagement.   (and yes there is a Starbucks in Lille!)
