How to apply as an exchange student to Université Paris Cité


Incoming exchange students have to be nominated by email to the International Relations Office of the Faculté Sociétés et Humanités

Contact: Ms. Emmanuelle Jego, or

Deadline for nomination: first semester (Fall term): 30th April / second semester (Spring term): 15th October

MoveOn application

After nominations are received, incoming exchange students have to apply on Université Paris Cité’s MoveOn portal. You will be sent the link by email, with guidelines on how to apply.

Deadline for application: first semester (Fall term): 15th May (except for MICEFA students) / second semester (Spring term): 30th October (except for MICEFA students)

  • Students from European universities, including the United Kingdom, must complete the Application for incoming students / Erasmus+ / Studies. In the “Educational Background and Requested Stay” tab, for “Framework”, they must choose « Erasmus études ».
  • Students coming from universities outside Europe must complete the Application for incoming students / International universities / Studies. In the “Educational Background and Requested Stay” tab, for “Framework”, they must choose “Bilatéral Etudes”
  • Students from the MICEFA program must complete the Application for incoming students / MICEFA. In the “Educational Background and Requested Stay” tab, for “Framework”, they must choose “MICEFA »

As part of the MoveOn application, incoming students can apply for university housing, but please note that Université Paris Cité only has very few rooms. For more accomodation options, see the Accomodation webpage.

Your MoveOn application file will have to include a learning agreement, i.e. the list of classes you will wish to attend at Université Paris Cité. You can find information about modules in Anglophone Studies on this page. For modules in other disciplines, please consult the websites listed in the section below. Before you upload your learning agreement on MoveOn, you need to have it signed by the academic coordinator for incoming students, Dr. Clémence Follea ( Please note that this initial version of your learning agreement might have to be revised later on, when you build your weekly schedule of classes for academic registration (see the section below).

Once your application is processed, you will be sent your offical letter of acceptance. Once you are offically enrolled at Université Paris Cité, you will receive your student number and will be able to activate your student account (see below).


Your primary contact for all administrative questions on the MoveOn application, housing and enrollment is Ms. Emmanuelle Jego, at the International Relations Office of the Faculté Sociétés et Humanités: or

Choice of classes for academic registration

Once the semester’s timetables are published (a few weeks before the beginning of term), it will be time to make your choice of classes a little more concrete: based on the semester’s timetables you will be required to build your own weekly schedule and define the definitive list of courses you wish to be registered for.

This is different from your learning agreement: you can use your LA as a basis but you will now have to consult the semester’s timetables to make sure your classes do not clash and build yourself a workable weekly schedule. Timetables are usually published a few weeks before the beginning of term.

In choosing your list of classes, please be mindful of clashes, make sure you have the correct amount of credits (or ‘ECTS’ in French) and follow the requirements listed below. Changes will be very difficult to implement once registration is complete so try to build a viable list of choices from the first.

Modules in Anglophone Studies

The timetables for classes offered by the Department of Anglophone Studies (or UFR Etudes Anglophones) can be consulted here (along with our catalogues of modules). Timetables are usually published a few weeks before the beginning of term.

Undergrad students (L1 L2 L3)

To register for modules in the Department of Anglophone Studies, undergrad students will need to email their lists of choices to Dr Clemence Follea (, academic coordinator for incoming international students within the UFR.

Please make sure you send a clear list with each module’s full title and correct code (please double check as all the codes are very similar), as well as the group number if applicable.

Postgrad students (M1 M2)

To register for modules in the Department of Anglophone Studies, postgrad students will need to contact Mme Murielle Guillemont, our Admission and Registration Administrator for Postgraduate Studies (

Modules in other disciplines

To register for modules in other departments (or UFRs), all international students will have to contact these departments directly.

You can find more information as well as relevant contact details by following the links below:

Requirements and restrictions

The policy of Université Paris Cité is to open most classes offered by the various departments (UFR) to all Erasmus and exchange students, subject to the following requirements and restrictions:

– Undergraduate and postgraduate students normally register for 60 ECTS for the full year, 30 ECTS per term. However, the home university may prefer an Erasmus or exchange student to take fewer ECTS than normally required. Please check with your home university.

– Erasmus and exchange students must register for at least two classes per term in their host department (i.e. UFR to which they have been nominated). In the case of students from English-speaking countries nominated to the UFR Etudes Anglophones, this requirement may be reduced to only one class per term with the UFR Etudes Anglophones.

– Note that access to modules in psychology is restricted to students nominated to the UFR Etudes Psychanalitiques.

– Note that access to modules in film studies offered by the Département LSH and the UFR LAC is restricted to students nominated to the UFR LAC. However, the UFR Etudes Anglophones offers a variety of modules in film and visual studies which international students can have access to.

– Note that you can register for classes only in the departments belonging to the Grands Moulins Campus

– Erasmus and exchange students must have a B2 level in French; this requirement may be waived for students who only register for English-taught classes in the UFR Etudes Anglophones (although it is recommanded to have a decent command of French to deal with everyday life in Paris)
