Master's Programmes



  • The University of Rouen was founded in 1966, but the history dates years before. 
  • The establishment of the university was inspired by the University of Caen which is considered the academic metropolis in the Normandy region.
  • The sky is the limit for the University of Rouen, in regards to expansion, due to the International Relations Office and the acceptance of all students. 


The Central Research Office is known as the Direction of Research and Valorization (Direction de la Recherche et la Valorisation) supports the University’s research and provides information and advice about research strategy and policy, research funding, research promotion and distribution, research contract negotiations, international partnerships, research staff mobility and doctoral education and training. These services are provided for graduate students both in a Masters or Doctorate program. Do note that within the office, there are four main deparments depending on the specific needs of the student which include general doctorate studies, european and international research, and development.

In France, students that would like to obtain affordable housing should go through the state agency CROUS. Most often, students rent an independent studio that is accompanied with a small bathroom and kitchenette or a single room with a shared kitchen and bathroom. CROUS offers student housing at numerous sites in proximity to University of Rouen campuses.

The University of Rouen offers multiple resources for students to stay healthy, both physically and mentally. At our Health Centers, students can stop-by or make an appointment to learn  about health education pertaining to drugs, alcohol, STDs, stress, insomnia, skin issues and contraception. Students will find information on effects, symptoms, prevention and treatment. For students with addictions, support for quitting is provided for free and under confidentiality.

My study experience is actually good, I was confronted with a new field of study compared to high school level. I had excellent in some subjects especially in languages and I have minor challenges with some majors in import and export analysis. So far, I think i am doing a great job.
