What is it?

A University Diploma (DU) Passerelle allows asylum seekers, beneficiaries of subsidiary or temporary protection, refugees, and stateless individuals to attain a higher proficiency in French to pursue studies in France.

The DU RELIER (University Diploma Return to Studies through Language and Interculturality for Refugee Students) offers:
