Students Associations

The campus in practice

While being attached to the Université Gustave Eiffel and the UPEC, the EUP students benefit from several advantages with the Descartes campus.

We invite our students to inquire about the sports and cultural associations from our EUP partners establishments: you can often enjoy preferential fees. There are many ways to help you in your job and housing searches, to help you fund your student’s projects, assist you in your grant applications, etc. Note that the UPEC also has a legal advice service.

The administrative restaurant in the Bienvenüe building is open to EUP students, but they must pay an entrance fee of about 3 Euros.

These courses take place with a placement test at the beginning of the semester. The test is done to improve the homogeneity of the groups and for efficient teaching. Only students taking the test will be allowed to participate to the courses.
Registration fees: 210€ per semester.
