UPDATE January 7

After a second lockdown in November the situation has eased up a bit and most shops are now open. A curfew is imposed from 20:00 to 06:00 in Annecy. Restaurants and bars are still closed for the moment, as well as ski resorts. It is still possible to go hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing, and there’s plenty of snow in the mountains :-).

Universities will continue online learning until the beginning of February. This may change depending on the evolution of the pandemic.


In spite of everything, Annecy Universitiy Institute of Technology wishes you all a Happy New Year and hope 2021 will bring you the best in everything you consider doing.

North Island College, Canada

On March 3, 2020, we had the pleasure of welcoming Anita Budisa-Bonneau from North Island College, Canada. She is the second member of NIC to visit in the framework of our new, promising partnership that for the moment encompasses our Bachelor’s Degree ‘International Sales Specialists in Sports’ and probably more degrees in the near future.

She came to present NIC during a USMB meeting where Heads of International from the different faculties were present, together with Laurence Vignollet (Vice President for International Relations) and Emilie Viret-Thasiniphone (in charge of administrative affairs for USMB).

We are very excited about this new partnership and working together!!

North Island College

Utah State University, US

On March 3, 2020, we had the pleasure of welcoming Andrew Deceuster from Utah State University, US. He was here to show his interest in one of our English-taught Bachelor’s Degrees (Performance, Sports, Textile and Footwear) and visit our facilities. We discussed broadening the agreement so that more students from both USU and USMB can study abroad, and went on a tour of campus.

We very much look forward to welcoming students from USU – the first one will come in September 2020, a pioneer of a new kind! – and working together over student and staff exchanges.

Utah State University

It was a pleasure having her and meeting her colleagues in the evening.We are planning on welcoming sending abroad students in the framework of internships and semesters, and very much look forward to working together!

EAIE in Helsinki

From the 24th to the 27th of September, the Finnish capital hosted the 31st Annual EAIE Conference and Exhibition. Two of our colleagues attended, met with partners from different universities and representatives from other Higher Education institutions that we would love to cooperate with in the near future.
