After the French Revolution, between 1805 and 1809, Emperor Napoleon I of France founded the faculties of Science, Arts and Medicine, at the heart of Dijon.
It offers 400 different degrees across all levels (Bachelor, Master and PhD) and enrols 3,000 members of staff and 29,000 students among whom more than 2,300 are international students.
Most programmes are taught in French, but a growing number are taught in English.
