The University of Caen Normandy (UNICAEN) is a public university in the port city of Caen, France. Its main campus is located in Caen, with five other locations in Alençon—Damigny, Cherbourg-en-Cotentin, Lisieux, Saint-Lô, and Vire. The university was founded in 1432 by King Henry VI of England. UNICAEN positions itself as an epicenter of higher education and research in the region. The university provides students with quality education where students can forge social and economic ties with local stakeholders.
The university's core academic programs include over 180 degrees, more than 40 research units, and eight doctoral schools. Main fields of study include arts, literature and languages; law, economics and management; humanities and social sciences; and science, technology and health. The university also houses 12 university departments, eight faculties, and four institutes and schools.
When UNICAEN was first established, it only had a faculty for law and canon law. In 1438, it expanded to five faculties and received confirmation from King Charles VII of France.
In 1944, the university was completely destroyed following the Battle of Normandy. After World War II, the school was one of the first buildings rebuilt in Caen. In 1957, the newly restored school was inaugurated. With this revival, the school has become among the most modern universities in Europe.
Notable personalities who have studied in UNICAEN include Pierre-Simon Laplace, a French scholar and polymath who developed the Bayesian interpretation of probability. There’s also Isambard Kingdom Brunel, an English civil engineer who built London’s Great Western Railway and was involved in the development of the passenger steamship SS Great Britain. Another standout alumnus is Guillaume François Rouelle, a chemist who is credited with the introduction of a base, which is a substance that reacts with an acid to form salt.
UNICAEN is considered one of the top 20 universities in France. Globally, it has received placement within the top 800 to 1,000 based on various university ranking publications.
UNICAEN is one of 13 universities to receive the Choose France label from the French Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation. The Choose France label highlights a university’s ability to support international students. With this, UNICAEN is set on carrying out three areas of improvement as part of the certification. These include putting up a buddy system for easy integration of international students to campus life, improving the French language support available to them, and training university staff in foreign languages and cross-cultural skills.
