Founded in the 16th century, the University of Strasbourg has a long history of excellence in higher education, rooted in Renaissance humanism. 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. 

Strasbourg's historical city centre is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, with many museums, theatres, concert venues and hosts various cultural events throughout the year. A city mixing cultural diversity and firmly rooted traditions, Strasbourg is the country's top city for international students. Its human size, 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.
