Université Paris Cité

Université Paris Cité was created by decree in 2019, following the merger of Université Paris Descartes and Université Paris Diderot, as well as the Institut de physique du globe de Paris. This large and multidisciplinary university offers a wide range of degrees in Humanities, Medicine, and the Sciences. The university has two main campuses, located in Saint-Germain-des-Prés in the 6th arrondissement, where it is headquartered, and also the 13th arrondissement, in the Paris Rive Gauche neighbourhood.

In 2022, Université Paris Cité was ranked 18th among young universities according to the Times Higher Education. The university’s ambition is to serve the needs and aspirations of society in a global context, and provides transformative and innovative educational programmes through its cutting edge research that empowers its students and staff to make a positive impact in an ever changing world.

This exchange is open to students from the Department of Physics and the Department of Pharmacy.

Eligibility for King's students

Important: Final decision on students' study abroad application to their host institution rests entirely with that host institution. Students must also meet their departments’ academic requirements to obtain final departmental approval to study abroad. It is usually at least a 60% average prior to departure, however this can vary amongst departments. Students should double check with their Study Abroad Tutor if they are unsure of their academic requirements.

Estimated living costs

Please see here for some examples of current estimated living costs in Paris, but actual expenses may vary depending on student lifestyle.

A reminder that King's students on exchange are not required to pay tuition fees to the host university, but you may incur administrative and/or orientation fees at the host. There may also be mandatory insurance costs, and transcripts may incur a fee.

Please also note that, if required, student visas often require applicants to supply evidence of financial support throughout the duration of the study abroad programme. Sometimes this will mean showing financial evidence for a specific amount, so please pay attention to the advice on this from the host institution.
