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.
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.
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.

Healthcare coverage in France is made up of a compulsory social protection (the so-called social security) and a complementary optional health insurance.
Some of the campuses are located in the heart of the city, close to train stations, amenities, and cultural sites. Others are located in wooded areas away from major roads.
All of them, however, are easy to access and are connected to each other and to the inner city through performant and safe public transit.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time in UL’s Law School. 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...
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 appreciated a lot my study experience at Lorraine University, given the high quality of study provided,
