Student Life

The Faculty’s Office of Student Services has the strategic purpose of encouraging students to play a major role in academic democracy. This is meant to give them a strong sense of belonging and to improve the quality of their university experience.

Students fully involved in decision-making

While student groups and organizations are provided with facilities ensuring their independence (premises, reprography charters), students are also proactive players in faculty life. Elected student members serve on the Faculty’s councils and make the most of their representative functions; their active contribution to our governance justifies the technical training offered by the Faculty which enables them to carry out their duties.

Promoting the emergence of a closely-knit student community

The Faculty considers the improvement of student premises and common spaces as one of its top priorities. Currently, it is actively contributing to the development of a Student Center in the Latin Quarter. A student gala, offered at the beginning of each year, encourages the development of a community feeling at the Faculty. The "Alumni Society" has a similar goal.

Improving the student experience and helping students to integrate

Enrolment procedures have been simplified and a handicap charter has been implemented.

Our Office encourages free expression through media such as messaging services, the student portal, newsletters, and forums.

The Career Center organizes skill development workshops to help students find employment. These sessions have a social purpose, they encourage team work, and they help the Faculty to identify students with particular challenges so as to direct them to the appropriate services.

The Faculty promotes health education (prevention, recovery and health awareness) in cooperation with the preventive medical services and the Faculty’s Sports Department (“le Service universitaire des activités physiques et sportives,”/“SUAPS”).

IT Services

Resources for all

The Faculty’s IT Service has the responsibility of ensuring the maintenance of the infrastructure in all buildings. It offers e-resources and management tools to the students. Both staff and students have the option to attend IT courses.

A user-friendly IT system

Though its Virtual Learning Environment (evolved in cooperation with the Coordinated Office of Parisian Universities for IT), its wireless network operating wherever possible, its Service Desk including a laptop lending service, the Faculty works for a user-friendly system for staff and students. Among our priorities for the future are: promoting access to information, developing information tools for the decision-making process of the policy-making committee of the University, enhancing teaching through our Moodle learning management system. The integration of our information systems is a means towards such a goal.
