What/Where is ULIP?

We pride ourselves on being different - a small, friendly institute providing a learning environment that helps students take the bold decision to study and live abroad for one to three years, allowing them to gain invaluable international experience that will help them grow and access broader opportunities.

As a UK higher education institution located at the very heart of the French capital, ULIP has Paris as its very own campus. Our 19th-century building is located in the splendid 7th arrondissement and overlooks the Esplanade des Invalides, where there are numerous monuments, institutions and museums within walking distance. Click here to have a look at our ‘campus’ map.


We offer a selection of programmes in the humanities and social sciences field at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.


  • French Studies programmes: Students can choose either the single honours programme, or select one of the following minors – Business, History, or International Relations. Living and studying in Paris allows students to gain fluency and enhanced cultural awareness. Students graduate with a University of London degree.
  • International Politics programmes: Students may choose the single honours programme, or opt for a Minor in French Studies. This programme is delivered in English and allows students to gain invaluable international experience while studying. Students graduate with a University of London degree.

You can find out more about our programmes via our online taster courses. Simply keep an eye on our event section.

School Visits and Fairs

We are constantly impressed by how passionate our students are about sharing their ULIP experience! So if ULIP could be an interesting option for your students, you can invite a student ambassador to visit your school or attend your school fair. They can share their experience of what it is like to live and study in one of Europe’s most cosmopolitan cities.
