A university with an international outlook

The Office of International Affairs coordinates several international exchange programs and international agreements with universities throughout the entire world, allowing UPEC students to go abroad on study programs, for internships, short programs, or language learning stays, whatever their course of study or discipline may be.

Main exchange programs

The Erasmus+ program in Europe 
MICEFA in the United States and English-speaking Canada
PQÉÉ in Québec
JOY with the National University of Yokohama in Japan
International agreements throughout the world

A large number of possibilities allow the greatest number of students to open up to new horizons, extend their knowledge, and provide added value to their resume for the European or international labor market.

Hosting international students

The Office of International Affairs is in charge of welcoming international students. The Office and the international affairs officers in the faculties can help them with administrative matters (finding accommodation, obtaining a student card...).


The Office also promotes UPEC's training programs and scientific reputation abroad.  It has relationships with embassies in several countries and participates in higher education conferences and fairs all around the world.

Languages & Cultures

The Office of International Affairs also promotes foreign language teaching thanks to its Intercultural and Language Space. For students and staff alike, it means benefiting from a wider range of services to discover world cultures and improve their language skills throughout the year. An opportunity to experience an international spirit on camps.
