Application Procedure for Incoming Erasmus Students


Valence Institute of Technology welcomes Erasmus student exchange applications from students enrolled in our partner universities.  Please check with your Erasmus Office whether your university has an Erasmus exchange agreement with IUT Valence.

If so, they will tell you how to apply, because everything starts with your home institution. Indeed, they have to select you, to accept your courses proposal and to nominate you to us.
If there is no formal agreement and your home university would be interested in signing one with us, the International Office of your home university has to contact us.
