The University of Nice

The University of Nice combines a solid scientific tradition with an avant-garde technological research.

As a multidisciplinary university for 50 years and 2nd university in France today, it represents nearly all the scientific disciplines with the annexation of the Polytechnic School on Sophia Antipolis.

Anchored in a region which represents on its own 1% of global tourism, our university attracts the highest percentage of foreign students in France: 19% compared to a national average of about 11%. 

Today, it is composed of 7 colleges, 4 institutes, 3 schools (including the IAE), 8 campuses and 1 university hospital which gathers 6 hospitals and 2 medical institutes. 

Why is it solid?

In conformity with the European tradition, the first universities were campuses of law and medicine: it was in 1639.
Three centuries later, in 1933, the City of Nice created the Centre Universitaire Méditerrannéen, which still today hosts prestigious academic events on the Promenade des Anglais. 

Why is it avant-garde?

As it is the siege of a centre of excellence in information science, communication and bio-tech safety, Sophia Antipolis, the first technology hub in Europe, nicknamed as the "French Silicon Valley" is composed of over 1400 businesses (including Airbus, Amadeus, Arkopharma...) and attracts a significant number of research institutions on a national, European and international scale (ESA- European Space Agency, CNRS, the French National Centre for Scientific Research...)
