Publié le 11 janvier 2011 Mis à jour le 12 décembre 2017

Partnerships, networks, international programs, doctoral programs... UPEC's active involvement in global activities reflects its growing profile in Europe and beyond. The university is host to visiting faculties from abroad and enrolls a large number of international students, while promoting international mobility for its own students and schools.

A coherent and structured international policy

UPEC’s commitment to international activities goes along with :

diversifying the offer in training programs (especially in bachelor and master levels), for both first degrees (sens) and continued education,
increasing the mobility of the university's students and faculties

UPEC’s highly professional staff oversees these activities and supervises exchange programs, years of study abroad, documentation, development of research on the European scale and expansion of the university’s activities in Africa, Latin America and Asia.

A dense network of international partnerships in Europe and beyond

A recognized and active member of associations and networks, UPEC takes part in many global Higher Education structures, such as :
The European University Association (EUA)
The University Association of French-Speaking Countries (AUF)
The European Association for International Education (EAIE)
The Interuniversity Mission for the Coordination of Franco-American Exchanges (MICEFA)
The Conference of Rectors and Principals of Quebec Universities (Crepuq)

With more than 250 international agreements and programs, UPEC endeavors to make knowledge and experience-sharing easier, by generating full-fledged programs of instructional and scientific cooperation. Courses and trainings are suited to the European market, as shown by UPEC’s combined degrees and joint degrees with international partners.

An efficient language program

Integration of foreign student and staff is facilitated by the Department of French language and Civilisation (Delcife).
