University of Strasbourg
Suitable for Geology and Law Students
The University of Strasbourg dates back to the 16th century, but the institution in its current form was founded in 2009, following the merger of Louis Pasteur, Marc Bloch and Robert Schuman universities. Located in the heart of the city, close to the European Parliament and the European Court of Human Rights, the Faculty of Law, Political Science and Management of the University of Strasbourg places its influence at the heart of its priorities. Each year, more than a hundred foreign students are welcomed under Erasmus agreements to the Faculty of Law. Finally, the Faculty regularly has the honour of welcoming renowned visiting professors who come to give courses and lectures to our entire university community.
Strasbourg is a pioneer in cross-border cooperation and is located at the heart of the Eurodistrict, which promotes Franco-German partnerships and projects in transport, urban planning, education or health. The city is the seat of the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights and the European Parliament. It hosts the headquarters of many other European organisations including Eurocorps, the European Pharmacopoeia, Arte (Franco-German cultural TV channel) as well as 30 consulates and 46 embassies. A city mixing cultural diversity and firmly rooted traditions, Strasbourg is the country's top city for international students. Its pedestrian city centre and 500 km of cycling paths make it a very pleasant city to wander around. Vibrant and affordable, Strasbourg is a true student city providing a great learning and living environment.
