Our partnership with the University of London Institute in Paris (ULIP) enables you to study at a world-renowned British university in the centre of the French capital and graduate with a prestigious degree from Queen Mary University of London. All programmes are taught completely at ULIP.
Teaching on our undergraduate degrees is a mixture of French and English depending on which programme you choose. International Politics modules are taught in English but French Studies modules involve learning in French.
Our master’s degrees are taught entirely in English, enabling our graduate students to study in France without French language skills and our non-English speaking students to develop their English language skills. The only exception to this is the Double LLM with Sorbonne – teaching by Sorbonne is in French.

Living in Paris
Although ULIP does not have its own university accommodation, our welcoming Student Services team is here to advise and guide you along your path to finding accommodation.
There are numerous options on offer, ranging from living with resident landlords, private studio flats, halls of residence or shared flats. Not only do we have partnerships with private halls of residence and connections with specialised student accommodation agencies in Paris, but we can also act as guarantor for students enrolled on ULIP programmes to help them secure accommodation with private landlords. All students can also apply to receive housing benefit (CAF) from the French government.
