University Catholique of Lille

Lille, France (Exchange Program)

University Catholique of Lille was founded in 1875 with the active support of the Catholic Church and a group of Christian businessmen. Later, vocational colleges (paramedical and engineering) joined the five founding faculties (Law, Arts, Science, Medicine and Theology). Over the years, colleges and research centres were created around Universite Catholique de Lille. They obtained associate status and decided to merge in 1973: so the "Fédération Universitaire et Polytechnique de Lille" was born. It is now called the "Université Catholique de Lille".

Education, research and service to society are at the heart of the mission of our university. That is why Universite Catholique de Lille aims to help students to define and build up their personal and professional future.
