ERASMUS + program

The University of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines is a recognized member of he Erasmus + Program and maintains links with over 100 partner universities across Europe.

All students at UVSQ are eligible for an Erasmus+ exchange placement, whether they are European or not. Students wishing to come from another European institution should check to see if there is an existing agreement and apply through their university if possible.
  • Erasmus exchanges are based on agreements between specific departments within separate universities. This means that each department has a specific set of partnerships. If you are interested in attending UVSQ you should check with your home university, your department, or the UVSQ International Relations Office to see if there is an agreement in your subject area.
  • Term dates: UVSQ courses are based on a semester system, divided into a Fall term (semester I) from mid-September to mid-January and a Spring term (semester II) from mid-January to mid-May, with some exams continuing until the end of June. Please click here (site only available in French) if you wish to find out dates relating to specific courses of study.
  • Possible study periods: UVSQ welcomes exchange students for both the Fall and Spring terms.
  • Language Requirements: Depending on your course of study you will need to have a certain level of language proficiency before arriving at UVSQ. In general, we require that all Erasmus students have a minimum B1 level of French proficiency and some courses of study may require proficiency in a second language as well. If you have specific questions about language requirements, please contact the International Relations Office.
  • Application forms and procedures: Applications for Erasmus exchanges must come from your home university and are generally for the next academic year. If you are a UVSQ student, please click here to access the online application. Non-UVSQ students should contact their university’s International Relations Office to find out about how to apply.
  • Accommodation: Students who have been selected to spend a semester or a year at UVSQ may ask for campus housing through the Housing Office (site available only in French). The Housing Office can also help you search for private housing.
