By internationalising its study programmes, the intensity of its intercultural exchanges, its incoming and outgoing mobility programmes as well as its wide-ranging scientific cooperation, the University of Bordeaux is in tune with global dynamics. As a result, it has opened up countless opportunities for its staff and students.
The University of Bordeaux is active internationally through a variety of structuring partnerships, in particular European research and training programmes. It welcomes many international populations, students and researchers alike. Mobility opportunities are available for both staff and students, right from the start of their studies. The university is strongly involved in internationalising its training and research activities, especially within the framework of the European university alliance ENLIGHT.
Over 60 international study programmes are available at the University of Bordeaux for Bachelor, Master or Doctorate degrees. Programmes designed for global openness, offering courses in foreign languages or mandatory periods of mobility abroad, that can lead to earning a double or joint degree.
The university is also capitalising on opportunities offered by Europe in terms of education and research. It is even the most active university in France in the Erasmus Mundus programme, with joint Master degrees in institutions from different countries. There are currently over 150 joint projects.
To build an international campus, the University of Bordeaux relies on privileged partners, with whom it is expanding its relationships. The bridges it has built are multiple: institutional, educational and research-focused. Among those privileged partners are the Universities of Tsukuba and Kyoto in Japan, the Universities of California and Cincinnati in the USA, and the Universities of Laval, Waterloo and McGill in Canada, not to mention the Mohammed V University in Rabat, Morocco, as well as the Basque universities thanks to the Euskampus Campus of Excellence.
For research, the university supports joint international laboratories with the CNRS, INSERM and INRAE in partnership with several regions worldwide, including Japan, Canada, China and India.
The University of Bordeaux allows students and staff to travel abroad. But it also knows how to warmly welcome people from other countries. As such, the university offers many services to incoming international students: assistance in obtaining a stay, finding accommodation and cultural activities. It also opens its doors to international researchers, who will have access to a dedicated welcome centre providing them with administrative and logistical support.
At the University of Bordeaux, many associations help welcome students and researchers, and make them feel at home. These associations include AAPI, which offers "support and inclusion of international students at the University of Bordeaux for individual/group guidance within/outside the academic framework," as well as Tranzit Kreol that welcomes people from the French overseas departments and territories, and Karavan Bordelaise.
