If you are not coming as an exchange student, please visit our page on
admission procedures for international students.
Every year hundreds of exchange students from all over the world spend time at Paris-Sud University as part of their degree. You may be able to study here through the following programmes:
Modules are available across many fields and are part of the normal curriculum, enabling international exchange students to study alongside France-based home students.
French language requirements
Very few programmes are taught in English (see our international degrees). We highly recommend that applicants for French degrees have attained level B1 in French as a minimum. However, no language certificate is required.
How to apply
First, contact the International Relations Office of your university and apply to them.
Once you have been accepted on an exchange programme by your university :
- Upload the necessary documents (Academic transcripts, Learning Agreement and your coordinator's signed confirmation)
- Complete the application before June 5th for the 1st semester or, if you will be staying for a whole year, before November 15th for the 2nd semester.
This short document is aimed to give you useful links and information on Université Paris-Sud, preparation of your stay, at your arrival and student life.
