Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Universities

There are six universities and four Grandes Écoles, highly selective and prestigious post secondary institutions, where students are admitted after two years of intense preparation once they have finished high school, in five cities. All ten are state-funded public institutions. They have excellent reputations and a close working relationship with universities in Ontario. When you apply, you indicate your top two choices; we are more than happy to advise you on which university best suits your needs.
