LMD Degrees

Training provided at UPEC is based on the LMD system: bachelor, master, doctorate (PhD).

These 3 degrees are recognized at the national and European levels. They are converted into ECTS credits (European Credit Transfer System), which represent a « European exchange currency » for students.
This system allows you to earn credits during your stay at UPEC and have them validated in all European universities.

The three levels of training (Bachelor, Master, Doctorate) and short degree programs (BAC +2) fall within one of the five main areas of studies:

  • Literature and languages
  • Law, Economics and Management
  • Health
  • Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Science and Technology

In addition to our regular study offer, there are several opportunities to study in English at UPEC, from single courses to entire programs that give students the opportunity to pursue a degree with a strong international dimension while living in France.
