Why is it interesting?

The DU Passerelle from the University of Paris 8 in Saint-Denis is an annual diploma which includes 480 hours of training. No student is accepted during the year. The recruitment period is in September for around thirty places available.

The DU Passerelle of the University of Paris 8 in Saint-Denis will welcome 2 groups of students from October 16, 2023 to June 30, 2024.

Students will have 15 hours of lessons per week, every day, either from 9am to 12pm (group 1), or from 3pm to 6pm (group 2).

At the end of the year, the student will take the final exam to have a University Diploma validating level B1 acquired in accordance with the CEFR.

To apply for this DU, it is essential to have acquired A2 level of French. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to a written test and oral interview in mid-September.

The university may register the student for a DELF/TCF session in December or May of the current year in an approved partner center but the cost of the test/diploma will be born by the student himself.

If you are a beneficiary of international protection or a beneficiary of temporary protection and you are under 35, you can receive financial aid (scholarships based on social criteria or specific annual aid) every month and accommodation for training.

During the training, you will discover the university in France: what it is to be a student, how the courses and exams are organized, what diplomas and training exist, how to take notes during the courses and review your lessons outside of the lectures, make presentations, prepare for exams... Administrative support is also offered to you throughout your training.

The French higher education system is complex.

During the training, professionals accompany each student individually to reflect on their academic and professional project, according to their possibilities.

The professionals also help you write your CV and cover letters, and register for the courses that seem interesting to you.

You will have access to different activities during the training:

  • cultural outings,
  • chat coffee,
  • sporting activities,
  • integration Day,
  • theme days,
  • tandem...

How to do it?

After sending the application, if your file is accepted, you will receive an email with an invitation for an oral interview and a written test.
