Since September 2004 there are three university levels offered to students at the University :
Firstly the bachelors degree, studies over 6 semesters (3 years)
Secondly the Masters degree, studies over 4 semesters (2 years)
Thirdly the PhD for those who wish to go into research after masters level (3 years).
Each study year is based on two semesters which have several modules (UE - unités d'enseignement) and give 30 credits. Students must obtain 180 credits in order to pass the bachelors course, and 120 extra-credits for the masters. Each field of study contains a common course, plus optional modules and general sessions open to students of all disciplines.
Important to note
Courses targeting professional integration
Diplomas which are recognized on a European level (finished the multitude of illegible diplomas)
Increasing possibilities to study in different places
It is now easier to pick up your studies at any time in your life or from wherever you are
Important to know
The DEUG may be awarded on request following the first four semesters of the bachelors course.
The 'maîtrise' diploma may be awarded on request following the first two semesters of the masters course.
All existing courses are maintained, even those who have few students.
The IUT still awards DUT diploma ('bac' + 2 years study).
Students may still study for the competitive exams in teacher training (CAPE, CAPES, 'Agrégation'...).
