Erasmus Exchange Program

Incoming Students

We welcome exchange students who want to study at ESIT for a semester as part of their student career in the Translation field.

You should first check with the international office at your institution whether a bilateral agreement has been signed with ESIT- Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris 3. Unfortunately, we cannot accept application forms from students who have not been officially nominated by their University or have not submitted an application to Paris 3 International and European Relations Office (SRI).

We do not accept free movers.


Application Process

All applications to Erasmus programs at ESIT should be made online through the International and European Relations Office (SRI) at Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris 3.

Once nominated by your home university, you should fill out the Paris 3 SRI online application form and send by post a paper copy duly signed and stamped by the International Exchange Coordinator of your University. 

Deadlines for Nomination by your Home University:
  • 15th May 2015 for students starting in October 2015
  • 15th October 2015 for students starting in January 2016

Application for next semester is now closed!

Please note that we admit the selected exchange students only if they have very good proficiency in French to be able to follow lectures, write academic papers and translate into French. Furthermore, students will be accepted only in the 1st year (Master 1) of our two-year Translation Postgraduate program.

Once we have accepted your application, we will send you a Welcome Guide. If it is not available at the time of your acceptance, it will be mailed separately over the summer. Feel free to request it from
