It is no coincidence that Grenoble attracts every year 65 000 students of 180 different countries, it has a lot to offer: 610 higher education cursus ranging from Bachelor degrees to Doctorate are available, a close relationship with international research labs and institutes and unique partnership with firms and companies – the capital of the Alps ranks 5th among the world’s most innovative cities. A magna cum laude, in other words. Grenoble, top of the class?
Yes, the city is used to ranking first in the “great places to study” charts – this is well earned: the American style campus can easily be accessed from the city centre, thanks to public transportation network and biking lanes.
Renowned institutes (Universities, PolyTech Grenoble) settled there a long time ago, among the chestnut trees and green patches.
Ride your bike to reach research labs located in Scientific Presqu’Ile, among prestigious international facilities: Synchrotron, ILL, CEA, are making perfect bridges where student and professional lives meet.
Studies count, of course, but daily life should not be forgotten: Grenoble has a unique combination of entertaining, sports and cultural activities to offer: looking up from the campus, it is easy to evaluate how fresh the snow on neighbouring summits is; shall we go next weekend for a ski trip?
Ski – the word needs no translation, and is a perfect choice to bring together foreign students who came to Grenoble for part –or all- of their higher educational cursus.
