About Pierre and Marie Curie University

Pierre and Marie Curie University (UPMC), a French university of science and medicine, is the principal heir of the faculty of sciences and one of the heirs of the faculty of medicine in Paris. UPMC’s faculties – Chemistry; Engineering; Mathematics (including the Institute of Statistics); Medicine; Physics; Life and Earth Science, the Environment and Biodiversity – offer bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programmes. UPMC also includes the Paris Astrophysics Institute, the Henri Poincaré Institute and three marine stations on the coasts of France. As France’s largest scientific and medical complex, UPMC researchers study the most important issues of sustainable development: health, climate change, water, biodiversity, energy and communications.

France's largest medical and scientific complex was set up in 1971 following the break-up of the old University of Paris, although it can trace its roots back to 1109 and the Abbey of St Victor. With 120 research units on 33 sites, it has a 30,000-strong student body, including 3,500 doctoral students, which is served by around 3,250 academics.
