ISTC Fellowship Program

View of Lille city center

Radford University School of Communication and the Institut des Strat√©gies 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.

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. Please follow this link to the list of classes from Fall 2017 for reference. The new catalog will be available in July, but there will only be minor modifications.

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 the 2019-2020 academic year will be due on November 15th for the Spring Semester. Apply by visiting

(and yes there is a Starbucks in Lille!)
