  • some tools to assess students' interests and qualities
  • discussions to help and build on students' projects
  • information on courses and how to switch orientation

Any student can come to ask questions about undertaking further studies, jobs, competitive recruitment examinations, switching orientation...

Switch orientation at the end of the year

Are you enrolled in 1st year and considering to change orientation at the end of the academic year?

Whether you're switching within the University of Orléans or to a training programme in another institution, you are required to apply on the "Parcoursup" platform.

Parcoursup lets you apply to selective training programmes (e.g. BTS, DUT, schools...) and for non selective programmes (license degrees, PACES).
