Students studying together

The university is located in Besançon, the capital of the Franche-Comté region in eastern France, close to the Jura Mountains and the Swiss border. You are likely to experience hard winters with snow and frost, and warm dry summers due to its location. If you like cheese, then this is the destination for you – as typical food from the region includes the famous Comté cheeses! The university has a lot to offer in terms of leisure, sports, culture and community life. What’s more, there is guaranteed housing in university residences for all students who have requested it, so be sure to request it when you apply.
