Studying French at AS/A Level (or equivalent) and fancy a weekend away to the City of Light? 

The University of London Institute in Paris’ (ULIP) annual Win a Trip to Paris competition is now open for students of AS/A-Level French (or equivalent)! The weekend offers the perfect chance to explore the French capital, try out your taste for croissants, and see what it might be like to live and study for your undergraduate degree in one of Europe’s most cosmopolitan cities.

This year's competition focuses on an important forthcoming event that will take place in Paris. To spur creativity, we have changed our format: this year we are inviting you to create an image caption. Be imaginative and bold! For your chance to spend a weekend in Paris, simply answer two questions and add your snappy caption under the image before midnight UK time 31 January 2020.


  • The winner receives two second-class, non-flexible return tickets to Paris (worth up to £400 maximum), as well as two nights of three-star accommodation in the Hotel de France, Invalides.
  • Two runners-up each receive one £50 gift card for Blackwell UK, also known as Blackwell’s and Blackwell Group.
  • Teachers can get involved too. The member of teaching staff who encourages the most applications will win un coffret cadeau, or gift hamper, from Fauchon worth approximately €75.

Entrants must be studying French at AS/A Level or equivalent and be at least 16 years old.

Terms and conditions apply.

    Over the summer we asked four of our undergraduate students to participate in a new promotional video. We interviewed each one asking them to share their experience of studying abroad at a UK university in Paris.
