A DIVERSE EDUCATIONAL OFFERING FOR ALL STAGES IN LIFE AND SUPPORT FOR STUDENTS TO SUCCEED AND ENTER THE WORK WORLD

Université Lumière Lyon 2 offers a complete range of courses in the fields of art, literature, languages, and human and social sciences. Its aim is to be a standard-setter at national and international level.

LIFELONG LEARNING

The courses available prepare 30,000 students for all qualifications within the European Bachelor-Master-Doctorate scheme and university degrees (DU – Diplômes d’Université). The educational offering is accessible at all stages of life, through initial education, continued professional education and the French VAE (Validation des Acquis de l'Expérience - validation of prior experience) and VAP (Validation des Acquis Professionnels - validation of professional experience) schemes. Teaching is given through conventional courses as well as sandwich courses. The Lumière University Institute of Technology (IUT Lumière) took the bold decision to include a sandwich-training element in all of its courses, enabling students to learn through practical workplace experience.

A MULTIDISCIPLINARY APPROACH

The educational offering includes 38 undergraduate degrees, 20 vocational undergraduate degrees, 140 master’s specialisations, 10 DUT (Diplôme Universitaire de Technologie – Technological University Degree) specialisations and 49 university degrees.

The development of dual-disciplinarity through 18 undergraduate degree courses is a major asset of this offering. EOs (Enseignements d’Ouverture – introductory modules) are also available over four semesters of the undergraduate degree. These strategies aim to avoid students specialising too early and enable the richness of the master’s offering to be linked to the undergraduate offering.

VOCATIONAL COURSES

Numerous undergraduate, master’s and DUT courses involve close relationships with the work world. Internships are an integral part of many curricula. Research master’s courses are developed along the lines of research pursued by the laboratories. They prepare the next generation of researchers.

AN INTERNATIONAL OUTLOOK AT THE HEART OF TEACHING

Université Lumière Lyon 2 has taken up the challenge of preparing its students for the globalised world by:
  1. Encouraging student mobility through exchanges with more than 80 countries;
  2. Setting up dual diplomas in conjunction with prestigious foreign teaching institutions;
  3. Creating the international MINERVE programme which involves teaching in English, German, Italian and Spanish given by foreign teacher-researchers at undergraduate and master’s levels.

SUPPORT SYSTEMS TO ENCOURAGE SUCCESS

Université Lumière Lyon 2 has made the commitment to introduce measures that limit the drop-out rate and provide support for students until the completion of their courses and their successful entry into the work world.

A number of measures coexist. They are intended for all students, as well as specific segments of the student population identified as requiring extra support. The aim is to inform, welcome, provide support and offer students the opportunity to change course, to ensure that the transition from secondary school to university is as smooth as possible.

INFORM

Student representatives in Lyon’s secondary schools; specific classes organised to raise awareness of higher education teaching practices among students in their penultimate year of secondary school.

WELCOME

A two-week induction period organised in September that gives new students an opportunity to get to know the university and get involved in their studies.
More informations on the Integration Period 2015

SUPPORT

Classes on university and discipline-related methodology for all students; personalised support and discipline-specific support organised for students experiencing difficulty following a call for proposals; individual support for students who have taken technological and vocational baccalaureates by master’s students studying the same subject; closer supervision for certain courses; a one-year prep course for certain courses.

CHANGING COURSE

All first-time undergraduate students and students retaking their first year are able to change course at any time during the academic year; a semestre rebond (“rebound semester”) is organised in spring to prepare for the change.

SUPPORT FOR ENTRY INTO THE WORK WORLD

The BAIP (Bureau d’aide à l’insertion professionnelle – Job market entry assistance office) organises meetings between students and companies and organisations in the form of job-introduction days and job-search days. These meetings are intended to familiarise students with various working environments and provide job-search techniques to facilitate their search and highlight the skills they have acquired during their time at university.

ONGOING INNOVATION IN TEACHING

In order to promote educational innovation and improve the quality of teaching, a call for proposals is organised each year. Dedicated teams are involved in creating and running innovative initiatives and/or strengthening the support provided to students.
