Welcome to our international students!
The University of Bordeaux welcomes approximately 6,800 international students each year. Find out about the many welcome tools and events that ensure a fun-filled integration period for these students!
Right from the start, at the beginning of the academic year, an orientation week is organized to help international students feel at home on the university campus sites. Following on from this, welcome services and events are ongoing throughout the year.
For more information on getting started at the University of Bordeaux, make sure to check out our international welcome guide which includes an agenda page, detailing the events scheduled over the academic year!
During your stay
For any questions related to their stay, international students are invited to contact the Student Life Centers (BVE - "Bureau de la Vie Etudiante") and Mobility Services (International Office - for those within an exchange program), located on the main campus sites. Information is available on topics such as registration processes, student integration, French classes, student file management and follow-up, scholarship and accommodation requests, Erasmus program agreements, etc. Different university services may also be indicated should students have questions about financial support and grants, health, social, culture, sport, leisure, etc.
And finally, finish off your year in style with the annual “Farewell party”, organized at the end of May, that celebrates the end of the mobility period for our international students.
