University of Bordeaux

Bordeaux, France (Exchange Program)

The “université de Bordeaux” (France) has a long-lasting university tradition dating back to 1441. Ranked among the top universities in France for the quality of its academic courses and research, it is a multi-disciplinary, research-focused, international institution.

The University of Bordeaux was newly established on the 1st of January 2014, following the merger of three universities: Université Bordeaux 1 Sciences et Technologies, Université Bordeaux Segalen and Université Montesquieu Bordeaux IV.

The University of Bordeaux is the third largest university in France (based on the number of its students), with more than 50, 000 students, including almost 2, 000 PhD students and 6, 000 foreign students. It employs around 5, 600 staff members, of which nearly 3, 000 are academic and research staff.

The University of Bordeaux is leading an ambitious project to be one of Europe's top research universities, in partnership with national research organizations such as the CNRS, Inserm and others (INRA, Inria, Irstea) and also along with the “Grandes Ecoles” located in Bordeaux such as Bordeaux Sciences Agro, Sciences Po Bordeaux, IPB. This strategy to develop the University of Bordeaux as a Campus of Excellence has been rewarded with significant funding provided by the French Government in the framework of its "Investment for the future" program, a national funding program that aims to promote the development of knowledge and innovation within France thus supporting the future growth of the country.
