Settling in at LLN

The arrival of an international student is an important and decisive moment for its integration within the UCL. Over the years, we have seen that a good reception facilitates a good integration, both academic and social. To welcome is to make the person who arrives feel secure and that they will be guided, accompanied, guided in their first steps.

During September, the CGEI has a stand on INFORVILLE from 9 am to 17 pm, next to the train station, The international students are guided on their first steps, and offered a secure place to store their luggage.


The first week of October The CGEI in partnership with the helpdesk and the Placet  organize a welcome party for new international students.

A little speech by the authorities, dinner and fun guaranteed for an evening full of new encounters.
