Université Savoie Mont Blanc

Introduction
Savoiesc

Welcome to the Université Savoie Mont Blanc !

With 14 000 students, a rich variety of multidisciplinary education and 19 research laboratories with an international reputation, the Université Savoie Mont Blanc is an establishment on a human scale which combines proximity with its territories, founder membership of the University of Grenoble PRES and a wide perspective on Europe and the world.

It offers short courses (university diplomas in technology, university diplomas) and long courses (generalist, specialist or vocational first degrees (licences), masters degrees by research or vocational masters degrees, engineering diplomas and doctorates), in both first level and continuing education, on a sandwich basis or including validation of experience.

On its three university campus sites at Annecy-le-Vieux, Le Bourget-du-Lac and Jacob-Bellecombette, it offers particularly attractive living and studying conditions, at the heart of an exceptional environment, between lakes and mountains.

In support of research and education, the international aspect contributes to the identity, attractiveness, dynamism and general development of our establishment. The focus of the Université Savoie Mont Blanc is, on the one hand to develop international projects, joint award qualifications, and programmes delivered in English, and on the other hand, wherever possible, to encourage mobility for students, lecturers and researchers as well as for administrative staff.

Although present in 5 continents, with its 240 bilateral agreements, it has been able to take full advantage of its outstanding location on the borders of Switzerland and Italy to develop strong, special relationships with the higher education establishments of these two countries: Suisse Romande, Turin, Milan, the Aosta Valley … a mixture of regions and university towns.

Our students are certain to find in the Université Savoie Mont Blanc a strong dynamic, a personal quality in their supervision, support in the choice and development of their personal plans as well as the required facilities for integration into involvement in working life. Choosing the Université Savoie Mont Blanc means an accumulation of every possible option for personal success and fulfilment.

To the students of Europe and the world: welcome to the Université Savoie Mont Blanc! To the students of the Université Savoie Mont Blanc: turn your thoughts to the discovery of Europe and the world!

Human-sized campuses

Located between Grenoble and Lyon, close to the Swiss and Italian borders, the University Savoie Mont Blanc is a state-financed multi-disciplinary establishment of higher education, recognized at regional, national and international levels. 13000 students in total on the campuses of Jacob-Bellecom-bette, Annecy-le-Vieux and Bourget-du-Lac, studying 200 proposed courses.

Research for recognized quality

Its 19 laboratories maintain close links with national research institutes(CNRS, INRA, CERN, CEA, IRSTEA).

They distinguish themselves in particular by the organization into interdisciplinary thematic axes: mountain studies, solar energy, physics and mechatronics.

The quality of this scientific environment is further enhanced by the proximity of the CERN in Geneva, the largest particle accelerator in the world, and the nano-technologies research cluster in Grenoble.

An international dimension

Ranked among the best French universities for its international relations, the University Savoie Mont Blanc comes first in the major networks for foreign exchanges.
