Admission process for Exchange students

Exchange student status

You fall within this status if you are nominated to the University of Tours by your home institution, in order to carry out an international studies mobility for a duration of one semester or one academic year. Your mobility is possible under the condition that your sending university has a valid inter-institutional agreement with the University of Tours.

Under the exchange student quality, you will pay registration fees at your home university, which will validate the courses taken in Tours during your mobility.

If you are an exchange student, please follow the procedure described below.
If you are an international student but do not have the exchange student status, then please click on this link.
