ULIP students can make the most of life in Paris by getting involved with the university’s welcoming and active Students’ Union. There is a yearly timetable of events and activities for students to participate in, which introduces them to the wider university community and helps them get to know the local area. Participation is encouraged and all students are more than welcome to help organise the fun.
Students can drop by the SU any day to find group study sessions in progress, or time for a coffee and a chat in aid of promoting mental wellness. The SU is also very involved in volunteering and charity fundraising, and students can find plenty of opportunities to help.
Clubs and societies
There is a large range of clubs and student-led societies at ULIP that suit every interest. There are groups where students can bond over shared heritage or languages, musical groups from karaoke to classical, societies devoted to indulging in all the finest food Paris has to offer, and sports to help students stay fit and healthy. Full details of the wide selection of clubs and societies on offer is available to view at the ULIP SU website.
Students can also keep busy and add some important skills to their CV by signing up to write for the university newspaper, or take part in the student-operated radio station.
Paris is a truly inspiring city which manages to be both cosmopolitan and very international, yet quintessentially French. Paris caters to all tastes; students can enjoy the quiet life, take walks along the River Seine and relax in the many manicured parks, gardens and green spaces, which make the city one of Europe’s greenest capitals or they can immerse themselves fully in Parisian city life.
For those more interested in Paris’ social scene, there are plenty of cafés, bars and clubs to enjoy, from upmarket wine bars to popular student spots and underground nightclubs. Students can also dine at some of the world’s top restaurants.
Paris has a huge variety of shops, with thousands of independent stores as well as high-street shopping and high-end fashion. It’s brimming with culture and has hundreds of excellent museums, art galleries, theatres and cinemas. For those students with a strong wanderlust, it’s easy to travel further into Europe on the Eurostar, and other interstate rail services.
