Welcome Week

The International Relations Office is pleased to welcome you to Lyon Catholic University for your exchange or individual mobility.

Due to the current health situation, we are unfortunately unable to organize our traditional Welcome Cocktail. However, we have decided to offer you a week dedicated to welcoming you, the Welcome Week, which will take place from September 13 to 17.

You will be able to take part in meetings and exchanges in small groups to respect the health measures.

So, don't wait any longer to register for our events!

Share a friendly breakfast

Come and share coffee and croissants on the Saint-Paul campus and meet other international students who have recently arrived in Lyon! You will also discover our International Relations team, which will be there to help you throughout your stay.

Getting to know the place

Our University has two campuses in Lyon: Saint-Paul and Carnot, which are located close to each other (10 min walk). Depending on your field of study, your courses will take place on one of these two campuses. Therefore, we would like to offer you guided tours to help you find your way around and discover the history of the Saint-Paul campus.

Dive into the heart of Lyon's former prison through a historical guided tour of the Saint-Paul campus in English. You will discover these 19th century buildings which are now mixed with modern architecture.
