Its excellence academic standards and close links with London’s academic and business world make this program particularly attractive. “The Global Bachelor Dauphine in London offers French excellence teaching in a multilingual, international environment”, explains Laurent Batsch, president of Université Paris-Dauphine. Why is Dauphine setting up in London? London is a particularly attractive place for Dauphine’s program: there are at least 300.000 French citizens, numerous Dauphine Alumni and vibrant business sectors close to Dauphine’s core disciplines Economics, Management and Finance. Dauphine students in London will take advantage of this stimulating, multicultural environment. Students will get an inside view of British higher education, thanks to local professors and close cooperation with Dauphine London based Alumni. Contacts with London’s business and finance sectors are an additional advantage for this program. The UK is on demand as a popular English-speaking country for French student mobility, while France is the first European destination for British students. The relocated Dauphine program in London offers a new possibility to British students to join French higher education and an innovative study opportunity to French and international students in the UK What are the specificities of Dauphine’s program in London? Dauphine is proud of its top quality Bachelor program and demanding teaching methods. Dauphine’s London students will have a work load of 20 course hours per week: equivalent to the program in Paris. They will be part of a small, international and highly selected group of students. Their different backgrounds will stimulate creativity in class.
