Université du Littoral Côte d’Opale

To study in France, we advise you to have a good knowledge or a reasonable command of French. In practice, you will have to be able to read, write and take notes in French, since all the courses will be in French. A B2 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages is required by the ULCO.

Université du Littoral Côte d’Opale is multipolar. This means it is spread over the four sites of the Côte d’Opale : Dunkerque, Calais, Boulogne-sur-Mer and Saint-Omer.

The ULCO does not operate on a Education and Research Units (Unités de Formation et de Recherche - UFR) basis like most French universities, but on a University Management Centres (Centres de Gestion Universitaire - CGU) basis.

ULCO provides training in 4 domains :

  • Law, Economics, Management
  • Art, Literature, Languages
  • Human and Social Science,
  • Science, Technology, Health (STAPS)
