Catholic University of the West


Recommended Posts

UCO has over 165 partner universities worldwide. We host over 150 exchange students and 1,500 French as second language students (at CIDEF) from over 60 countries every year. Over 350 UCO students spend time abroad for studies and internships every year.
UCO has signed 14 new agreements in 10 different countries and established a double diploma in Human Resources with the University of Québec in Rimouski, Canada. For the academic year 2011-2012, we are glad to announce three other joint degrees with St Edward’s University (Austin, Texas, USA), and Hope University (Liverpool, UK).
Amongst various activities organized for our international students are trips to different destinations in France throughout the academic year.
The Université Catholique de l’Ouest is 135 years old: initially, a medieval university founded in 1373 was later reopened in 1875 and had a current student population of 12,000. The campus is situated in downtown Anger, a mere five-minute walk from the station. The nearest bus stops. It lies just minutes away from the main shopping area, restaurants, gardens, banks, and administrative offices. The university campus boasts an unusual architectural blend of old and contemporary buildings, standing in a 5-hectare park.
Studying in France allows you to explore a unique cultural and historical heritage. Over the years, France has acquired a reputation for its art of living, traditionally consisting of rich and sophisticated food, fashion and perfumes. France is proud of its state-of-the-art science and management techniques. We are currently the fifth economic power in the world and the second exporter of services worldwide. France is a safe, reassuring country that welcomes visitors warmly and offers an exceptionally high level of welfare and protection.
Angers is one of the most delightful cities in France. It lies in the Loire Valley heart, a mere hour and a half from Paris with 15 high-speed rail connections daily (TGV). With the sixteenth largest population in France, Angers is the capital of Anjou, a famous wine-producing region. This university town offers a great diversity of cultural activities: a 13th-century castle, numerous museums, film festivals, theatres, music. Its inhabitants enjoy a pleasant environment with 360 hectares of parks and gardens and 67 kilometers of cycle paths. Waves of anger offer visitors an efficient network of bus routes; a tramway was built in 2011.
The International Office (Pôle International) is a service that supports the implementation, evaluation, and optimization of all international projects within UCO. It is composed of the CIDEF, Exchange Programs, the BEC (Bureau d’échange culturel), and a language resources group. Its mission is to define and develop international strategies at UCO and motivate the internationalization of the university community (students, faculty, and staff mobility).
