“Leisure and Lifestyle” provides international students with the opportunity to undertake intensive study on new leisure markets in a short summer format taking place on France’s Nice Riviera Campus. Now in its first year, the programme has adapted an experiential learning-by-doing approach that is as unique as it is appropriate to the context of one of the world’s premier tourist attractions in the south of France. As a specialist in intercultural communication, I believe that the international learning cohorts that come together for this multi-disciplinary intensive track provide enhanced experience of new lifestyle pursuits, diverse cultural understandings of leisure and the challenges specific to leisure and lifestyle businesses."
