Université Paris-Saclay brings together ten constituent faculties and institutes (5 faculties, 3 University Institutes of Technology and a University Engineering School and an Observatory of the Sciences of the Universe), four component-institutions (AgroParisTech, CentraleSupélec, Institut d'Optique Graduate School, ENS Paris-Saclay), a recognised non-profit research organisation (IHES), two member-associated universities (UVSQ and UEVE), and laboratories shared with major national research organisations (CEA, CNRS, Inrae, Inria, Inserm, and Onera). It offers a complete and varied range of training courses from undergraduate degrees to PhDs, recognised for their quality thanks to the reputation and commitment of its teaching staff.
Located south of Paris, on a vast territory (from Paris to Orsay, via Evry and Versailles), Université Paris-Saclay benefits from a strategic geographical and socio-economic position enhanced by its international visibility. Cutting-edge, with a predominantly scientific focus but also recognised for its training in human and social sciences, Université Paris-Saclay operates on a classified and protected natural site, close to Paris, and at the heart of a dynamic ecosystem.
.


Université Paris-Saclay offers several facilities to welcome its foreign students through the international welcome desk.

Through the GATE Welcome Desk for International Talents (Guichet d’Accueil des Talents Étrangers) you can carry out, in a single location, all the necessary administrative procedures for your move and stay in France.
