Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA) is a public research university located in the city of Grenoble, France. Established in 1339, UGA is the country’s third-largest university with an estimated 60,000 students and over 3,000 researchers. It also sits in one of Europe’s largest scientific centers and has hundreds of research and teaching partnerships with public institutions, including the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission and the French National Centre for Scientific Research.
UGA offers a wide range of degree programs, from undergraduate to doctorate degrees. The main medium of instruction is French but there are also programs taught in English for both undergraduate and graduate studies. A few of the disciplines that offer English programs are Computer Sciences, Maths, Sciences and Technologies of Information and Communication; Environmental and Earth Sciences, Material Sciences, Physics, and Architecture, Human and Social Sciences, Territorial Studies, Urban Development.
In addition to its traditional degree programs, the university offers short-term programs and summer schools. Short-term special programs mostly cover lectures and projects on French language and culture, environmental issues, and engineering.
Aside from its own offering, UGA has double-degree and offshore programs in partnership with international universities. It also offers student exchange programs in a variety of disciplines, including Architecture, Humanities, and social science; Arts, literature and languages; and Engineering.
French language courses are also offered at the university. Students can choose from monthly or semester courses as well as special topic courses. UGA also offers French language courses online via Massive Open Online Courses.
UGA was originally named the University of Grenoble, which was dissolved in 1971 due to the 1968 civil unrest in the country that resulted in reforming the French education system and the breaking of the University of Grenoble into four separate universities. These are Joseph Fourier University (UJF), Pierre Mendès-France University (UPMF), Stendhal University, and the Grenoble Institute of Technology (Grenoble-INP).
In 2016, UJF, UPMF, and Stendhal University were merged once more to restore the original institution and adopted the name Université Grenoble Alpes. Grenoble-INP remains independent but works closely with UGA in conducting research projects through sharing labs and offering mutual training and courses to students.
UGA graduated several renowned figures in politics, the academe, business, and the arts. These include former German President, Richard von Weizsäcker; former United States First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy; Empress of Japan, Masako Owada; and former South Korean President, Park Geun-hye.
