How do I reorient my studies?

In your first year of study, if you wish to change course, you have two options:

  • You can reorient yourself as early as the first semester
    You can ask to be reoriented towards another specialization or even another bachelor's degree for the second semester of your first year. Contact your academic secretary and the SCUIO-IP's Psychologues de l'Éducation Nationale (PsyEN) to find out about all the options available to you. You'll probably have to validate some of the courses in the first semester of your new course.
  • You can validate your year and choose another course for the start of the next academic year
    From the second semester of L1, you can no longer reorient yourself during the year. Instead of abandoning your course, you can also validate your current year. This will enable you to redirect your course while keeping the same level of study (L1, L2, L3).
    To help you build your career plan, contact the National Education Psychologists (PsyEN) at SCUIO-IP.
