More about Montpellier University

Created in January 2015, Montpellier University (UM) is the result of the merger of Montpellier Universities 1 and 2, benefiting from the excellence of both institutions. The institution now revives the universal ambition of the first university created in Montpellier in 1289 as a secular and international establishment. Over a period of eight centuries, intellectuals and scientists, from Rabelais and Curie to Renaudot, Chaptal and Grothendieck, have shaped a university closely tied with the city’s life and involved in the great challenges of its times. UM brings together a vast community of knowledge, from science, techniques and medicine to environmental and educational science, as well as economics, law and political sciences.
