The AFEPA academic year generally lasts from September 1 until August 31 of the following year but varies according to the academic calendar of the individual partner university.  Students should arrive a few weeks before the start of the academic year applicable for their first year university to participate in orientation sessions, complete administrative obligations (e.g., registration, insurance, rental contract, residence permit) and get acclimatized to the new environments before the academic year starts.
