International Office

Welcome to the International Office of 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 and Crepuq, and bilateral partnership agreements with universities in Brazil, China, Japan, Korea, Russia, the United States and Vietnam.

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 a private individual, please refer to the Individual applicants. Your application will be dealt with by our registration department.


A single reception desk

The international relations department provides a very warm welcome for international students coming to the University of Cergy-Pontoise.

When you arrive, the international relations team and French student tutors will welcome you and help you discover Cergy-Pontoise University : enrolment, accommodation, administrative formalities...

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

At the beginning of each semester, a special orientation day is organised so that you can visit the university campus and the Cergy-Pontoise area.
It’s also an opportunity to meet other international students, French students who have also studied abroad, and the university’s teachers 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, will enable you to organize trips and parties.

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 equipped with computers with Internet access and brochures on cultural activities.
