Nomination and Moveon application

Nomination

JDEAS students coming to UPCité for a mobility semester must be nominated by email to their administrative contact in the International Relations Office of the Faculté Sociétés et Humanités, Ms. Emmanuelle Jego: emmanuelle.jego@u-paris.fr or mobility.sh@u-paris.fr

– second semester (Spring term): 15th October 2024

MoveOn Application

After nominations are received, incoming mobility JDEAS students have to apply on the UPC 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 2024
UPDATE: the Moveon applications deadline for first-term and year mobilities has been pushed back to 31st May 2024.
– second semester (Spring term): 30th October 2024

  • Students coming from City College New York 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 other consortium universities must complete the Application for incoming students / Erasmus+ / Studies. In the “Educational Background and Requested Stay” tab, for “Framework”, they must choose Cursus intégré.

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

Official acceptation

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).

Language certificate

For the French language certificate, simply upload a note stating that you are exempt because you plan to take only English-taught classes from the UFR Etudes anglophones. Of course, there is no need for a French language certificate if you want to take French-as-a-foreign-language classes.

Provisional learning agreement

Your MoveOn application will have to include a provisional learning agreement, i.e. the list of classes you would like to attend at Université Paris Cité.

If you don’t already have a learning agreement template, you use those available here.

You can find information about modules in Anglophone Studies here: https://u-paris.fr/etudes-anglophones/modules-in-english/. Please note that catalogues for the next academic year are only updated during the summer; so some changes in the offer might occur.

For modules in other disciplines, please consult the websites listed in the section below (« Choice of classes for academic registration »). Please note that this initial version of your learning agreement will probably have to be revised later on, closer to the beginning of term (see the academic calendar below). Updated versions build your weekly schedule of classes for academic registration (see the section below).

Please note that, as a JDEAS student, you must try to attend mostly M2 courses whenever possible.

Before you upload your learning agreement on MoveOn, you need to have it signed by the academic coordinator for incoming students, Dr. Clémence Follea (clemence.follea@u-paris.fr) and/or by the JDEAS manager at UPCité, Pr François de Chantal (fdechantal@u-paris.fr).

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 to build yourself a workable weekly schedule. Timetables are usually published a few weeks before the beginning of term.

If you need help for choosing your classes, please contact the JDEAS supervisor in Paris, Prof. François Vergniolle de Chantal, or the academic coordinator for incoming students, Dr. Clémence Follea.

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.

Regular MA courses

JDEAS students have access to the regular MA classes in Anglophone Studies. To find out more please consult our catalogue of postgraduate and timetables (brochures et emplois du temps M1 – M2).

Please note that, as a JDEAS student, you are strongly encouraged to choose M2 modules. Please select M1 modules only if you can’t find enough M2 modules in the disciplines you need.

Registration can be done in person or by email with Murielle Guillemont, murielle.guillemont@u-paris.fr with your student number and a list of your classes, with their code, title and group number if applicable

Modules in other disciplines

Subject to your home university’s agreement, you may take courses in French as a foreign langague from the LANSAD (language center) or sports as free electives :

Modules in French as a Foreign Language (FLE)

Modules in Sports
