Presentation of the Undergraduate Programmes

The University of London Institute in Paris (ULIP) specialises in social sciences and humanities. Being a small university with a close-knit community of staff and students, we offer two core programmes at the undergraduate level, International Politics or French Studies with various subjects as minor options.

While the International Politics programmes are delivered in English, the French Studies programmes are mainly delivered in French. For those with no prior French qualification, we offer non-credit bearing French courses to expand your language repertoire and navigate through the city.

Interdisciplinary and intercultural programmes

We have an interdisciplinary approach, allowing you to have more breadth in your course content as you will be able to explore a variety of subjects. In addition, with French/English/European and Global comparative elements, the programmes will allow you to widen your perspective, as well as your network by interacting with students who study a different field.

Small-class sizes and interactive style of learning

ULIP’s small-scale allows small class sizes which facilitates a collaborative and interactive style of learning, allowing hands-on learning to be at the centre of ULIP’s programmes. In addition, our attentive and accessible staff strive to constantly renew course content so it reflects and addresses contemporary issues.

Field trips, field works and assessment

We offer regular field trips and encourage our students to do fieldwork, so you can get the most out of the city and your study experience, giving you a competitive edge once you graduate. Students can choose their area of interest and carry out research projects. Methods of assessment include a variety of types of coursework, in-class presentations and research projects to name a few.

Assigned academic advisor

If you attend ULIP you will be assigned an academic advisor who will guide you both in academic and pastoral matters throughout your time at ULIP. This hands-on support is there to accompany you along your journey transitioning from school to university, especially if this is your first experience abroad.
