For more information, please go to the “Campus/ Campus pratique” section of our website. The minimum monthly budget including accommodation and food is about € 600. International students staying for more than one semester can apply for housing benefit (called “APL” or “ALS”), which can cover up to 50 % of their rent."

Examinations mostly consist in continuous assessments during the semester as well as a final examination. You need to pass the same examinations as those envisaged for French students. These can be written, oral and occasionally practical tasks.

There is a new students’ orientation week in September. In Avignon, you can take advantage of a buddy programme. Local law students look after one Erasmus student each for the entirety of their stay.
