Published on January 31, 2024

During the week of January 22, 2024, UPEC had the pleasure of welcoming the international students joining our university for the second semester.

International Welcome 2024
International Welcome 2024


For the second semester of the 2023-2024 academic year, UPEC welcomes close to 100 international students from 23 countries.

Most of our exchange students join us from a European country within the framework of the Erasmus+ program (75 %) or a dual degree. The United States are also well represented this semester, with nine students having crossed the Atlantic as part of the MICEFA program. Others arrive from Latin America or Asia thanks to an international cooperation agreement between UPEC and their home universities.


The welcome program designed to make their arrival easier combined information and social events with:
  • An introduction to UPEC and its student services
  • A French-level test for those wishing to attend French as a Foreign Language classes with the Delcife
  • Informal meet and greets with representatives of the student organizations Penser le monde UPEC and ESN Paris (Erasmus Student Network)
Throughout their stay, our international exchange students will be supported by the international relations officers and pedagogical coordinators based in each faculty, school and institute.

We wish them an excellent semester at UPEC and a wonderful intercultural experience in France.
