France - founded 1441
The University is one of France’s largest and best universities with a strong focus on multidisciplinarity, research-focused teaching and learning and internationalisation. Nearly 60 international study programs exist at Bachelor, Master and Doctorate levels including 18 EU-labelled programs.
The University of Bordeaux remains true to its open and humanistic philosophy. This openness is illustrated via the numerous partnerships with international universities (cooperation agreements have been signed with over 500 establishments worldwide). Students play an active and important role in university life. They are elected to the university boards and participate in various consultative bodies. Students are also involved in the annual appraisal of the teaching staff and become active members of cultural or faculty associations, all contributing in their own way to keeping the university "on the move".
