Label CF Every year, Nantes University welcomes thousands of international students. Welcoming and integrating our incoming students is one of our top priorities. For more than twenty years, our Guichet Unique scheme has enabled us to offer them a privileged moment of exchange and personalised support from the moment they arrive. In 2019, we were awarded the Welcome to France 3-star label, a symbol of our commitment to international students and the quality of our welcome.


Who is concerned by specific procedures for international students ?

To apply for L1: any non-European student with a diploma equivalent to the french baccalauréat.
Reminder: Parcoursup is exclusively for European students and/or holders of a french baccalauréat.

To apply for a L2, L3 or Master’s degree: any international student who has never been registered in a french higher education.
Students enrolled in french classes (DUEF) must follow the same application procedure and the same academic calendar as international students.
