Overview

Université Côte d’Azur (UCA) is a recently created cluster of higher education establishments that encompasses the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, the CNRS and Inria research agencies, the SKEMA and EDHEC Business Schools, the Nice University Hospital, the Observatory of the Côte d'Azur, and six internationally recognized art and design schools. UCA is located on the world-famous French Riviera, a traditional hotspot for artistic and cultural activity which has also become a major center for technological innovation, in particular with the development of Sophia Antipolis, the largest technology park in Europe. UCA is building on this rich heritage to create a modern French university based on scientific excellence, innovative and forward-looking educational programs, and a focus on societal and regional challenges. UCA boasts more than 30,000 students at the undergraduate, masters, and Ph.D. levels, as well as high level research laboratories covering all major academic disciplines, with particular strengths in the life and health sciences, astronomy, business and finance, mathematics, and the digital sciences. UCA was selected by the French Ministry of Higher Education to be a pilot university for the development of innovative programs in continuing education. The University has a major international focus, with more than 20% of its students and faculty coming from abroad, with close to 500 international research and education partnerships, and with a significant and growing number of its programs offered in English. In January of 2016, the UCA was awarded a prestigious Excellence Initiative (IDEX) award by the French government, placing the UCA among a small group of high-profile, world-class French universities.
