Strasbourg, Bas-Rhin Département, Grand Est, France

Universities and tertiary education

🇫🇷 Strasbourg is the largest city of the Grand Est region of Eastern France and the official seat of the European Parliament. Located at the border with Germany in the historic region of Alsace, it is the prefecture of the Bas-Rhin department and the heart of the Eurométropole de Strasbourg (Greater Strasbourg).

Strasbourg is one of the de facto four main capitals of the European Union (alongside Brussels, Luxembourg and Frankfurt), as it is the seat of several European institutions, such as the European Parliament, the Eurocorps and the European Ombudsman of the European Union. An organization separate from the European Union, the Council of Europe (with its European Court of Human Rights, its European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines most commonly known in French as "Pharmacopée Européenne", and its European Audiovisual Observatory) is also located in the city.

Together with Basel (Bank for International Settlements), Geneva (United Nations), The Hague (International Court of Justice) and New York City (United Nations world headquarters), Strasbourg is among the few cities in the world that is not a state capital that hosts international organisations of the first order. The city is the seat of many non-European international institutions such as the Central Commission for Navigation on the Rhine and the International Institute of Human Rights. It is the second city in France in terms of international congress and symposia, after Paris. Strasbourg's historic city centre, the Grande Île (Grand Island), was classified a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988, with the newer "Neustadt" being added to the site in 2017. Strasbourg is immersed in Franco-German culture and although violently disputed throughout history, has been a cultural bridge between France and Germany for centuries, especially through the University of Strasbourg, currently the second-largest in France, and the coexistence of Catholic and Protestant culture. It is also home to the largest Islamic place of worship in France, the Strasbourg Grand Mosque.

Economically, Strasbourg is an important centre of manufacturing and engineering, as well as a hub of road, rail, and river transportation. The port of Strasbourg is the second-largest on the Rhine after Duisburg in Germany, and the second-largest river port in France after Paris.

Universities and tertiary education Strasbourg, well known as centre of humanism, has a long history of excellence in higher-education, at the crossroads of French and German intellectual traditions. Although Strasbourg had been annexed by the Kingdom of France in 1683, it still remained connected to the German-speaking intellectual world throughout the 18th century, and the university attracted numerous students from the Holy Roman Empire, with Goethe, Metternich and Montgelas, who studied law in Strasbourg, among the most prominent. With 19 Nobel prizes in total, Strasbourg is the most eminent French university outside of Paris.

Up until January 2009, there were three universities in Strasbourg, with an approximate total of 48,500 students as of 2007 (another 4,500 students are being taught at one of the diverse post-graduate schools): • Strasbourg I – Louis Pasteur University • Strasbourg II – Marc Bloch University • Strasbourg III – Robert Schuman University

As of 1 January 2009, those three universities have merged and now constitute the Université de Strasbourg. Schools part of the Université de Strasbourg include: • Sciences Po Strasbourg (Institut d'études politiques de Strasbourg), the University of Strasbourg's political science & international studies center • The EMS (EM Strasbourg Business School), the University of Strasbourg's business school • The INSA (Institut national des sciences appliquées), the University of Strasbourg's engineering school • The ENA (École nationale d'administration). ENA trains most of the nation's high-ranking civil servants. The relocation to Strasbourg was meant to give a European vocation to the school and to implement the French government's "décentralisation" plan. • The HEAR (Haute école des arts du Rhin) is an art school following the European tradition. • The ISEG Group (Institut supérieur européen de gestion group) • The ISU (International Space University) is located in the south of Strasbourg (Illkirch-Graffenstaden). • The ECPM (École européenne de chimie, polymères et matériaux) • The EPITA (École pour l'informatique et les techniques avancées) • The EPITECH (École pour l'informatique et les nouvelles technologies) • The INET (Institut national des études territoriales) • The IIEF (Institut international d'études françaises) • The ENGEES (École nationale du génie de l'eau et de l'environnement de Strasbourg) • The CUEJ (Centre universitaire d'enseignement du journalisme) • TÉLÉCOM Physique Strasbourg (École nationale supérieure de physique de Strasbourg), Institute of Technology, located in the South of Strasbourg (Illkirch-Graffenstaden).
