Université Paris Diderot (Paris VII)
Founded in the mid-12th century, Université Paris Diderot is the one of the earliest established universities in Europe. It is the only multidisciplinary university in Paris to offer a wide range of degrees in the Humanities, Medicine and the Sciences. The university moved to its current campus in 2006. The campus features Paris's largest university library. It is located in the 13th arrondissement, in the Paris Rive Gauche neighborhood.
With its 26,000 students, 20% of whom are international, its 2,000 faculty and its 92 research laboratories, it is a major actor in European higher education and research. The university’s ambition is to enlighten 21st-century society by opening up new fields of study, renewing traditional disciplines, developing and enhancing the achievements and results of research, and connecting with the community at large.
The exchange agreement between King's and the Université Paris Diderot (Paris VII) allows for up to two Full Year Equivalent (FYE) places for undergraduate and postgraduate exchange. This equates to two students going for a full academic year OR four students for a single semester OR a mixture of the two. This exchange is open to students from the Department of Physics.
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.
King’s students that wish to study abroad at this institution should check the ‘Undergraduate options by department’ page to see if this institution is indeed an option for them.
Estimated living costs
Please see here for current estimated living costs, but actual expenses may vary depending on student lifestyle. The cost of travel to and from the country is not included in these estimates.
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.
