Orientation program

Each year, in the days leading up to the start of the university academic year, the International Relations office, in partnership with the CRL, organizes an orientation program for international students on exchange programs.

The orientation program's objective is threefold:

  • To make administrative formalities easier
  • To help students with their linguistic integration by offering intensive French courses
  • To help them become familiar with their new surroundings (the university campus, the city of Pau, the Pyrénées Atlantiques region, situated between the ocean and the mountains).

To participate in our orientation program, please contact the UPPA International office before your arrival by email (incoming-students @ is possible until June 30th).
