International Welcome Desk

Currently, the International Office helps foreign students and researchers to settle at the University.

A dedicated staff

  • accompanies them with administrative formalities
  • proposes appropriate accommodations
  • facilitates their linguistic integration
  • familiarizes them with their new surroundings: the University campus and the city of Pau and introduces them to all the region has to offer.

More specifically, before the beginning of each academic year, the International Office, in partnership with the Institute of French Studies for Foreign Students (IEFE), organizes a two-week orientation program, which is greatly appreciated by students.

UPPA now plans to expand the services provided by the International Office with the creation of a Welcome Center. The International Welcome Desk will accompany arriving students, but its role will focus on researchers.

Particular attention will be given to:

  • Facilitating the integration of the researcher and his or her family: language courses, cultural activities, childcare and schools;
  • Helping with residence documents, hosting agreements and visa formalities;
  • Finding accommodation;
  • Dealing with administrative formalities: bank account, social security, family allowance, housing allowance, insurance, taxes, etc.
