The Université Grenoble Alpes is a major player in higher education and research in France.
As the world is becoming more and more competitive, our institution aims to better respond to the challenges the world poses universities today and in the future, and to be more visible and attractive internationally.
The Université Grenoble Alpes already features in the top 100 and top 200 universities in major international rankings (Reuters, Shanghai, Times Higher Education and QS for example) for some of its scientific fields. The UGA rivals the best universities in the world thanks to the strength of its research and the numerous educational innovations it has implemented.
The university and its students, faculty, and staff are deeply tied to the world around us. We believe these local and global ties make our research, our teaching, and our communities rich and strong, and you will see them reflected in all of our key activities.
