A pathway to employment for 14,000 students
Universities, grandes écoles, IUT (University Institutes of Technology), CFA (Apprenticeship training centre)…the Nîmes Metropolitan area offers a great diversity of education and some exceptional gems that can only, or almost only, be found here. These programmes make up a dynamic ecosystem that’s fully in line with the region’s economic structure, which calls for specialised skills.
And the Montpellier-Nîmes Faculty of Medicine, the oldest still in operation in the world, also organises outstanding programmes in the Nîmes Metropolitan area. The academic and research department in Nîmes, located near the university hospital, offers a high level of professionalisation.
And finally, the IUT (University Institutes of Technology) in Nîmes offer undergraduate technical diplomas (DUT) and professional degrees in 5 areas: Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Industrial IT, Mechanical Engineering and Production Automation, Business and Administration Management, Materials Science and Engineering.
These studies take place in 12 training sites close to lively areas and offer student accommodation that guarantees housing suited to each person, in the best possible conditions.
Daily life simplified
The Nîmes Metropolitan area has opted for highly practical vocational programmes offered to a limited number of students. The result? Maximum employability and adequately scaled infrastructure that simplifies daily student life.
