The University of Strasbourg welcomes 51,000 students, of which 20% are international students covering 150 nationalities. Moreover, 12% of its lecturers and researchers are coming from abroad. With its 35 components, 78 laboratories and research units, it is distinguished by the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary nature of its training offer. It conducts a research of excellence provided by nearly 2,800 lecturer-researchers, including four active Nobel Prize winners.
Located at the heart of one of European capitals as home of (the first) key European institutions, blending French and German cultural influences, its history naturally ties it to the Upper Rhine region that concentrates a core academic potential in Europe. The international and European dimension of Strasbourg is therefore second nature for UNISTRA and fully embedded in its culture and values.
The UNISTRA has a long-standing experience in coordinating networks. In addition to the EUCOR network – The European campus, the UNISTRA is also very involved in other major European partnerships such as the Franco-German University, the Utrecht Network, and other Erasmus networks holding more than 800 agreements. The university also benefits from over 1,500 agreements and conventions with more than 750 universities in 75 countries. The UNISTRA is involved in more than 60 European projects and coordinates 38 of them.
