Study at the University of Burgundy as a Degree-Seeking Student

This website is dedicated to candidates who would like to study at the University of Burgundy outside of a short-term exchange programme and are of a foreign nationality.

The majority of study programmes at the University of Burgundy are taught in French, however we do offer some English-taught programmes, of which the majority are at Master's level.

This website provides instructions on how to apply to all of our programmes, at all levels and for both English- and French-taught programmes. You may find that some documents are only available in French, this is because these particular documents are only relevant to those applying for French-taught programmes.
