International Office

Welcome to the International Office at the University of Cergy-Pontoise

The University of Cergy-Pontoise welcomes about 1900 foreign students each year within the framework of various exchange programmes, including Erasmus, Crepuq and bilateral partnership agreements with universities all over the world : Brazil, China, Japan, Korea, Russia, the United States, Vietnam, etc.

If your university has a partnership agreement with the University of Cergy-Pontoise, our International Relations Office will review your application and act as your representative throughout the duration of your stay with us.
This section provides you with the information you are likely to need to prepare for your stay in Cergy, as well as the details of all the documents and procedures you will have to complete prior to your arrival. 




If you are not in this situation, but would still like to come and study at Cergy as an individual student, please refer to the Individual applicants office. Your application will be dealt with by our registration department.


A single reception desk

International students coming to the University of Cergy-Pontoise will receive a very warm welcome from the international relations office.

When you arrive, the international relations team and French student tutors will welcome you and present the university and its services and environment : enrolment, accommodation, administrative formalities...

To make formalities easier, the university has set up a single reception desk. Thanks to this system you can carry out all your paperwork in one place (enrolment, visa, accommodation...).

At the beginning of each semester, a special welcome / orientation day is organised so that you can visit the university campus and the Cergy-Pontoise area.

This welcome day is also an opportunity to meet other international students, French students who have also studied abroad, and the university’s professors and administrative staff.

Throughout the year special cultural outings are organised for international students such as trips to local and Parisian museums, plays, etc. Geomoov, the international students' association organises many day trips as well as parties and social events.

In the Maison des étudiants (the student union, located in the Les Chênes tower) room 101 is reserved for exchange students. It’s a friendly place where you can come to meet other students. The room is equipped with a "chill out" space, a microwave/eating area and computers with Internet access. You can also pick up information and brochures on cultural activities in Cergy-Pontoise and the Paris area (or at the Cultural department on the second floor).
