The Université Grenoble Alpes is one of the largest European universities. It offers high-quality education at the Bachelor, Master and Doctorate levels and, in collaboration with national and European partner organizations, cutting edge research possibilities. Besides its exceptional scientific environment, Grenoble benefits from its beautiful mountains which attract many French and international students each year. The campus lies close to the river Isère and is just minutes away from the lively city center thanks to two tramway lines. Most students live in dormitories or share a flat either on the campus or in the city center. On the campus site, you will also find the arts and humanities universities (Université Stendhal and Université Pierre Mendès France) where you may chose some non-science courses.

Most classes are taught in French but there exist also international programs in English. The first and second year students attend classes in the Department of Science and Technical License (L1-L2). The third year, they specialize into different topics and join the corresponding departments to prepare a License degree (L3) and then a Master degree (M1-M2).
