LEE Kwang-Jin, student in Master in Chemistry at CY Cergy Paris University, was following the IUD in 2017-2018:

I was able to begin my first-year courses in English and was also assured an ideal learning environment in French. After the first year, it gives a possibility of having multiple academic options to further my studies in the second year. IUD is a unique program that is perfect for students who are willing to learn a new language and pursue a scientific degree in an entirely different culture.

Tsubasa ITO, student in 2nd year of Bachelor in Physics-Chemistry (Licence 2) at CY Cergy-Paris University, was in the IUD in 2018-2019:
1 year in IUD programme was such a great experience for me. Studying in an international environment was extremely inspiring and enjoyable. Professors were also greatly helpful when I had difficulty understanding some topics. As CILFAC (French language course) was part of our curriculum, it opened the door to integrate into the second year of national French programme.
