If you are interested in being an exchange student at the University Grenoble Alpes (UGA), the first step is to contact the International Office at your home University. Make sure your home University has a formal exchange agreement with IUT2 Grenoble (Institut Universitaire de Technologie 2) or UGA. If your University doesn’t have an agreement, The International Office of your University can contact us to start a new cooperation.

As a second step, you should be nominated by your home University as an exchange student with destination IUT2 Grenoble. Students should be nominated through the portal https://international-nominations.univ-grenoble-alpes.fr/ or by e-mail at sri@iut2.univ-grenoble-alpes.fr                                                                                                                                         

The nomination should include the following information: last and first name, date of birth, gender, e-mail address, duration of the exchange (semester or full year) and field of studies.                      

If you home university does not have an agreement with IUT2 or UGA, but you would like to spend one or two semesters at IUT2 as part of your degree, you can apply as individual student to one of our English-taught programs.
