The Paris Region has much to offer to international students, such as history, art, culture on top of its academic & scientific excellence.

Paris has been listed in the QS best student cities ranking for many years.

At only 25 minutes from the world famous Les Champs Elysées, or La Défense (one of the major futuristic skyscraper-packed, business districts in Europe) stands the city of Cergy-Pontoise. The historic heart of the area of Cergy-Pontoise thrives on a prestigious past which has often found itself at the crossroads of the history of France itself, as when the Royal Court resided there. Its fame was extended through the long residency of Camille PISSARRO, who painted the varied landscapes of the town and its nearby countryside in numerous works, which are now to be found in the greatest museums in the world.

Blessed with rich heritage, Cergy-Pontoise became on March 30th, 2006, a member of the national network of towns and lands of Art and History. This label, delivered by the Ministry of Culture and Communication, embodies a policy aiming to promote heritage and architecture. Today, Cergy is known as a vibrant student hub.
