Why Nantes?

The Université de Nantes welcomes every year more than 4000 international students. Our main priority is to ensure the best reception and integration for our incoming students. For over 20 years, we have been offering a privileged time of exchange and an
individual support to each student upon their arrival through our "guichet unique". In 2019, we were awarded the "BIENVENUE EN FRANCE" LABEL (3 stars), as a recognition of our commitment to international students and the quality of our welcome.

What is the added value?

In Italy and abroad, a double degree is always an added value. Not only the experts say it, you just have to browse through the job offers to realize that companies and organizations are looking for international and open-minded profiles, able to work in multicultural teams and to face ever new global challenges: these are the workers of the future.
