Choice of classes and registration

Upon arrival in Paris and after you have received your student card, you will be required to register for the classes you chose. Registration for a particular class is done with the UFR that offers it. Registration must be done in person with your Université de Paris student card and a written list of the modules you want to take (with the code, title and group number if applicable).

Regarding your choice of classes, the JDEAS supervisor in Paris, Prof. François VERGNIOLLE DE CHANTAL or the supervisor for international exchanges, Laurence CROS can help you. As JDEAS students, you are supposed to take 30 European credits (ECTS). You will mostly attend courses from the UFR Etudes Anglophones (English Department) but you may also take some other courses as free electives.

In addition to the regular MA course, you may take an Independent study module that is specifically designed for JDEAS students.

You will meet once a month with a professor at Université de Paris who will give you some advice on possible readings and will tell you which conferences you can attend. You will write a short report either on what you read or on the conferences you attended. Professor De Chantal will help you find a supervisor, according to your research project.

The official code and name for this class are “41OPLI53 – Travail tutoré”
