Program Description:

The University of Strasbourg is a young university founded on an age-old tradition. It strives to teach across the disciplines, so that this mixing fosters new research opportunities and produces courses that meet society's needs. The international dimension is fundamental for the University of Strasbourg, and thanks to the worldwide reputation of its research teams, built on excellence and efficiency, it emerges among Europe's foremost research universities. Solidly anchored in the European Higher Education Area, the University of Strasbourg, with its 42,000 students, the campus covers a vast part near the center of the city.

Strasbourg is the ultimate European city. It has flavors of both France and Germany, and sits right on the border of the two countries. It's picturesque "la Petite France" neighborhood looks like something straight out of a fairy tale book, a riverfront neighborhood with timbered buildings accented by colorful flower boxes. The home of the European Parliament, this often-overlooked and surprisingly cosmopolitan destination hosts France's oldest Christmas market and features a stunning cathedral. In fact, Strasbourg has often changed hands between the French and Germans over the centuries.The Black Forest and the legendary Rhine River are just at or beyond the city's edge. There are several wonderful daytrips here into France's Alsace or Germany.
