During these welcome periods, incoming students are offered free French language and civilization courses. It is a great opportunity to be introduced to French culture.
The Mobility office regularly organizes meetings for new incoming students, and also a special meeting for Erasmus Mundus students. Paris Descartes University also bears the possibility to propose rooms in students’ residence halls with WIFI access to international exchange students within the framework of contracts signed with two institutions: the office of students services for Paris and Ile-de-France suburbs (Centre Régional des Oeuvres Universitaires et Scolaires) and the International University Campus of Paris which is only 2 metro stations far from the School of Pharmacy.
These initiatives have led the University to host, in 2013-2014, 6 000 students (on 39 000), amongst which 400 incoming exchange students, 450 outgoing exchange students. Paris Descartes is offering access to the new technologies of information to their students with a student webmail, open access multimedia room and also on-line work provided through the work numerical environment: schedules, shared documents, bibliography and lecture’s notes.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS-WELCOME DAY
The University of Angers is well trained at welcoming international students (European and non-European). The International Office dedicates a great part of its activity in proposing support for accommodation, language training, and administrative formalities.
When students apply to the University, they have the possibility to book a room in one of the University residence hall. If a student cannot get a room in one of the halls of residence, a list of home and youth hostels will be disclosed by email. If the student prefers another type of accommodation, the Local Center for School and University Services will help to find a suitable accommodation. Four University restaurants are available 6 days/week on the campus, and WIFI is accessible on halls of residence and campus.
Upon their arrival, students will need to satisfy several requirements. The International Office and the exchanges programmes co-ordinators at the University of Angers will help students with this process by providing information on all administrative tasks that have to be accomplished (opening a bank account, administrative formalities for Health insurance, for residence permit–visa)…). In addition, free French Language courses are proposed during the semester: 3 hours per week during 10 weeks, which aims at teaching the student French language and French culture in and outside the classroom. Students can also participate to free French Culture courses and conversation workshop.
The International Office promotes also cultural, social and sport activities. It develops a strong collaboration with the different offices of the University involved in student life (like sport, culture, faculties, health support…) and also with local cultural partners (theatres, specialized libraries, cinemas…). To support this, thanks to a special agreement with some cultural venues allowing for reduced tickets prices, collaboration scholarships (library, sport, cinema, etc.) are available to the exchange students. It also organizes excursions on great places of France. 49 different sports and physical activities are offered at the University of Angers as well as a climbing wall, two gymnasiums and three specialised rooms for dance, physical training and martial arts are available to students who wish to practice these activities as part of their study programme.
