Education policy

UPMC aims to educate professionals who will be the driving force in fundamental research and technological innovation.

The University is committed to the development of original and ambitious educational projects.

- To attract the best students that are motivated by scientific studies;
- To help all students find their paths to success;
- Promote international studies as an educational and cultural wealth;
- To offer its graduates the best integration and professional advancement;
- To facilitate continuing education throughout all stages of professional life.

UPMC has structured its institutional policy around the LMD system (Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctorate).
The range of courses on offer were designed to streamline the number of specializations, in both bachelor's and master's courses.
Various mechanisms have been introduced, aimed at attracting motivated students: cooperation with secondary schools in disadvantaged zones of the Île-de-France area, demanding double-major degrees and optimal reorientation for students who are unhappy with their studies in France's demanding preparatory classes for the “Grandes Ecoles”.

UPMC’s policy of integrating students and building their loyalty starts as soon as they enter the university. Key policy aspects include academic support from supervisors and tutors and active guidance through the bachelor’s program.

The opening up of degree programs to a broader range of careers has resulted in newly qualified graduates through apprenticeships during the bachelor’s program.

Initiatives to assist graduates’ entry into the job market are offered at both bachelor’s and master’s levels (in the form of conferences, workshops in small groups, and careers forums). Today, of the 2,000 UPMC master’s graduates every year, 60% want to go into business. More than 80% find a job paying an executive salary within 3 months.
Financial and administrative support from the academic office and the International Relations Department is designed to promote the establishment of international pathways in all master’s subjects, in order to encourage students to gain experience abroad.
The evaluation of programs and classes is increasingly wide-spread through all educational departments.
UPMC monitors the following indicators of quality: staff evolution, student entry and exit flows, success rates in degree programs and the long-term monitoring of students’ subsequent career paths.
