Student Reviews

Personal opinion (others might have different view)
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

The university is located in the heart of Paris with amazing staff and faculty running it. From my experience in the BME masters, I have to say that the first year (M1) should have been waived for someone with my background. Moreover, you are forced to take courses whos names are'nt really an indication of what they are about. Finally, the classes are almost 4 hours long...

Overall good university
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

Paris Descartes' university excels at giving a complete program in psychology, although it is still very oriented towards cognitive or more ''scientific'' psychology. Organization and administration issues are very recurrent and are yet to be improved. As for the professors, many of them will be good professionals, but not necessarily good teachers.

Excellent program
