What is it?

The main goal of the "DU Passerelle" of University Jean Moulin-Lyon 3 is to give participants the means to reach the level required to enter a university course, to finalise their studies and, ultimately, to facilitate their employability.

Why is it interesting?

You can find the detailed description of the diploma by clicking here.

 The programme will focus on two areas: academic training and support for professional integration.

 French as a Foreign Language classes for intermediate levels (B1/B2) will make up the main part of the course.

 Methodology and specialty courses will also be offered — according to the field of study and professional project.

 The programme will also include cultural, sporting, associative and civic activities.

A strong emphasis will be placed on success and professional integration. Individual and collective support will be provided through workshops: orientation, CV writing, networking, IT courses, etc. Students will be monitored by peers in the integration of daily and academic life through.

 Finally, in order to promote their personal development and their socio-economic integration, students will follow modules from the University's Success Center: self-confidence, bouncing back, managing emotional intelligence, etc. Psychologists will also be at their disposal and will lead collective discussion sessions.

The candidate must have a baccalaureate or a secondary school certificate and a minimum level of French B1.

The candidate is exempt from registration fees when registering for the first time in French higher education. He will have to pay 50 € for a second registration.

The DU Passerelle-Students in Exile has been accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education, — via the Migrants in Higher Education (MENS) association. It therefore gives access to grants on social criteria, to student accommodation, to specific aid and collective catering for beneficiaries of international protection.

How to do it?

The candidates must complete the DU Passerelle application form specifying the options they wishes to follow. Download the application file by clicking here!

The candidates will then meet the head of pedagogy and the administrative coordinator to present their study and professional project. Their level of French will be assessed and notified on the application file if necessary.

The choice of programme will be made jointly with the candidate, the head of pedagogy and the administrative coordinator.
