Non-exchange students

You're coming in the framework of an individual mobility or as a free mover

You Are a Resident of the European Union

You are a citizen of the European Union, the European Economic Area, the Swiss Confederation, Monaco or Andorra: no visa is required; a valid identity card or passport is sufficient.

European students follow the same processes as French students to register in a French higher education institution.

Apply in the first year of a Bachelor's (“Licence”)

European students applying for entry in the 1st year of a Bachelor’s program must do so through the Parcoursup platform.

Apply in 2nd/3rd year of Bachelor's (“Licence”), Master's and PhD (“Doctorat”)

Apply directly with the Faculty/Departement offering the program you wish to enter.

You are a non- European Union Resident

You are currently living in a country affected by the Etudes en France procedure:

If you are a resident of one of the countries affected by the Etudes en France procedure, it is mandatory to register with the Espace Campus France in your country (online) to submit your application then obtain your student visa.

You are currently living in a country which is not affected by the Etudes en France procedure:

Non-European students not affected by the Etudes en France procedure are required to submit a "Demande d'Admission Préalable - DAP" (preliminary request for admission) to enrol in the first year of a Bachelor's degree programme.
Note that at UCLy, not all Bachelor's programmes will require international students to submit a DAP. Please check with your UCLy coordinator or the International Relations Office.

For registration in the 2nd or 3rd year of a Bachelor's degree programme or a Master's degree programme, the DAP is not required.
Consult our programme catalogue and Apply directly with the Faculty/Departement offering the program you wish to enter.
