UCCS internationalisation

UCCS has a very long tradition of international collaborations all over the World.

Our international lab. (more than 50 nationalities are currently represented at UCCS!) works in close partnership with the academic, socio-economic and industrial fabrics, of course French, but also of the entire World. We receive International Visiting Professors for short-term stays (from one to two weeks) for mid-term stays (from one to two months) in order to develop and strengthen collaborations in the scientific field, as well as in training and education of 2nd cycle students (Master courses).

We are also strengthening our international impact through three International Associated Laboratories (LIAs) in India, Japan and Brazil, and as a mirror laboratory of a CNRS-Solvay Joint Research Unit located in Shanghai, China.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you want to know more, to visit our laboratory, to get a job with us, to collaborate with us ...

International opening of Lille's academic ecosystem

UCCS participes to I-SITE ULNE

The internationalization of our local ecosystem can be illustrated by the following characteristics: bottom-up collaborative actions by the scientific community (numerous international collaborative publications), 450 permanent foreign researchers, lecturers and professors, 250 foreign guest researchers annually, welcoming 8 880 foreign students (12% of the student population of the ecosystem, slightly above the national average of 11.8% and up to 20% in “Grandes Écoles”), participation in more than 133 Erasmus programs, 28 masters in English, 9 international licenses, 254 dual diplomas and several achievements to develop an international environment ("International Student Week" organized each year in November, the Lille Erasmus Student Network, Welcome Club, organization of summers schools, participation to the models of United Nations and “International Academy Of Lille”, which offers summer programs for languages). Moreover, an International Label is awarded in the context of excellence to distinguish outstanding students in degrees with international curricula. Once graduated, up to 25% of “Grandes Écoles” students find their first job abroad. Significant efforts have been made to welcome and integrate foreign researchers, notably through the construction of the high-tech International Residence Hall REEFLEX, especially designed for foreign researchers, the organization of an annual welcome seminar for incoming Ph.D., the COMUE Euraxess service center, and the creation of the “Maison Internationale des Chercheurs de Lille” in 2017.
