Université de Lille is a traditional university with reputed graduate schools and research teams. It also offers more contemporary areas of study and vocational courses. Students have the opportunity to take regular university courses in French at Université de Lille alongside French students. 

This program is ideal for students with a strong command of the French language who wish to improve their language level. As an ISEP student, you can build your own program by choosing your courses from a variety of fields. Use the notes for course searching to help you find which courses are available. 

The University of Lille 3 has recently merged with the universities of Lille 1 and Lille 2, and is now the Université de Lille. The university is therefore in the process of opening up its course offerings for exchange students to all three campuses.

- Students interested in Science & Technology will be studying on the ST campus, where they can take classes in biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, or physics. They can also find programs in Economics, statistics and management, as well as in sociology.

- Courses on the DS campuses should be mostly available at the Licence level in the “Droit” faculty (law, economics and business administration). The “santé” fields are generally state-exam oriented and few are accessible to international students. 

- The Lille SHS program is known for the Department of Humanities, with a strong curriculum in the Faculty of Arts, Letters and Languages. Lille SHS is a popular program for students interested in fine arts, offering theater, cinema, art history and dance. For additional language learning, Lille SHS offers a "Tandem" course where two students (one native French speaker and one non-native French speaker) are paired up to share intercultural communication and language exchange. Students can also register at the self-monitored Language Resource Center. 

Students should note that courses in English from the English department at Lille SHS are often designed for non-native English speakers and some of them may not necessarily be appropriate for native English speakers. The English studies department offers a variety of courses in English-speaking literature, culture and history. The MA seminars in literature, culture and history, for a higher number of credits, are also popular.
