Université Paris-Saclay joins the association France Universités and other French and European universities in extending its support to Ukraine’s academic, scientific and student communities and their families during this tragic time. More than ever, our institution defends the fundamental values of peace and democracy, and strengthens its support to the freedom of people and ideas.

Measures in place at the University

The University has sent a message of support to the Ukrainian and Russian students at Université Paris-Saclay, as well as the students currently located in the conflict zones (Ukraine, Russia and Belarus), informing them of the key contacts and internal support measures among them:

If you are a student at Université Paris-Saclay and currently find yourself in difficulty and you have not been contacted by the University, you can write to international.welcomedesk@universite-paris-saclay.fr.

The following form " Conflict in Ukraine - Application Request form - Université Paris-Saclay"  is designed for international students of all academic levels directly affected by the ongoing  conflict in Ukraine, Russia and Belarus.

Your request will be processed as soon as possible.

These measures are in accordance with the instructions from the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI), which also recommends that, “French citizens in Ukraine should contact the diplomatic post, which has set up a crisis unit. Their top priority today is to support the French community and evacuate French citizens back to France. The French Embassy in Ukraine has opened a helpline for French citizens in Ukraine: +380 44 590 36 39.”
