Research in astrophysics and space is mostly done in English. As a consequence, AStroParis is taught in English.


The challenge of English is twofold : to train French-speaking students in the practice of English on the one hand, to welcome English-speaking students on the other hand. As the transformation compared to previous courses in French is challenging, we implement English teaching gradually, to reach ambitious and reasonable objectives.


All lectures will progressively be available in English
 at the M1 level ; starting september 2020
 at the M2 level : before 2023 (provisional schedule), a selection of lectures only will be in English ; meanwhile, all modules will be available in English thanks to flipped pedagogy ; all trainings can be performed in English.

Apart from lectures in English, some modules are provided in flipped pedagogy in English, with tutoring : students benefit from existing course materials (monographs, handouts ...) and a tutorial in English adapted to optimize knowledge transfer and control achievements.

Skills in English

The required level for attending the program is B2.
