Université Paris-Saclay

Université Paris-Saclay offers a full range of Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral degrees, recognised on the international stage thanks to the reputation of its research and the commitment of its teaching staff. Its constituent faculties and component institutions further expand this offer with cutting-edge thematic training in science and engineering, life sciences and health, and social sciences and humanities.

Located south of Paris, at the heart of a comprehensive ecosystem of research and innovation, stretching from Paris south to Orsay, through to Evry to the east and Versailles to the west, Université Paris-Saclay benefits from a strategic geographical and socio-economic position enhanced by its international visibility.

The university offers cutting-edge research. 275 laboratories shared by its 7 research institutions (CEA, CNRS, IHES, Inrae, Inria, Inserm, ONERA), represent 13% of French research potential. As such, it provides students with a rich blend of high-end training courses on a comprehensive range of subjects, not the least in Natural Sciences, Engineering & Technology, and Life Sciences & Medicine.

Just as key to higher education is innovation. The Paris-Saclay Campus also takes advantage of its position on the largest innovation cluster in the world, which is home to the R&D centres of key enterprises as well as a strong network of incubators for start-ups and FabLabs.

With 48,000 students, 9,000 professors and lecturers, and 11,000 technical and administrative staff, Université Paris-Saclay is a driving force for the development of its territory and one of top higher education institutions in France.
