For the second semester of the 2021-2022 academic year, UPEC is welcoming more than 100 international students from around 20 countries. This is an increase of almost 50% compared to the same period last year.

Most of these students join us from a European country in the framework of the Erasmus+ program, others take part in the MICEFA exchange program with the United States, some study for a double degree or arrive from Brazil, India or the Republic of Korea thanks to an international cooperation agreement between UPEC and their home universities.


To make the students’ arrival easier in a safe manner, UPEC organized a welcome webinar on Monday, January 17, 2022.

The heads of the International Mobility Division and of the Languages and Cultures Space of the Office of International Affairs hosted the online conference that highlighted the services offered in addition to the academic courses:
  • Artistic and cultural activities
  • Libraries
  • Languages and cultures activities
  • Housing services
  • University health services
  • Digital Services
  • Sports
The institutional presentation ended with a Q&A session to ensure that each student begins the semester with all the necessary information.

Throughout the semester, exchange students will benefit from ongoing support from their faculty, institute or school’s academic coordinators and international relations officers.

We wish our new international students a great semester at UPEC and a wonderful intercultural experience.
