Lausanne has a long tradition as a University town : the Academy was created in 1537 to train protestant theologists. It developed gradually and became a University in 1890.
The Cours de vacances exists since 1895 and has been commited from the beginning to the concern of teaching French to non-French speaking people and spreading the French language around the world.
