About

History

In Nancy, three universities were founded in the 20th century, among which a National Polytechnic Institute that combined several engineering schools. In Metz, the first university appeared in 1970. On January 1st, 2012, after several years of preparation, these four universities merged into one, forming Université de Lorraine.

Education

Université de Lorraine promotes innovation through the dialogue of knowledge, taking advantage of the variety and strength of its scientific fields, and aiming at the promotion of knowledge transfer to irrigate innovation and economic growth as well as the progress of fundamental science.

Research

There is no coincidence. The scientific thematic areas which have developed in Lorraine result from this region’s history, through the cross-fertilization of scientific fields present for a century, and through their highly increased interaction in the last decade.

A truly fantastic Law school
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

With a law degree in both French and English, it offered students the possibility of developing great skills in French law, but also getting an insight into Common law. Moreover, due to its reputable professors, it truly showed students the real part of working in the legal field and at the same time, it motivated us to...

Almost there !
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Overall, it was fairly nice considering the pandemic happened during the cursus. Maybe the facilities weren't developed enough as well as the student life which was basically absent. I still think it must have been better when the pandemic was not there yet though ! I really liked the fact that the teachers were always there for us as students.
