The University of Evry-Val d'Essonne was created in 1991 as part of the development of higher education in the Ile-de-France region.
Situated in a growing agglomeration, the university has been multidisciplinary from the start and has developed work-oriented education in order to meet the demands of its local social and economic environment.
There are more than 160 curricula, over half of which are professionally-oriented. The University offers courses in Science, Technology, Law, Economics, Management and the Social Sciences.
The University of Evry has built a reputation as a dynamic local institution, one whose students find work rapidly. Today, the university counts more than 10 000 students (data from April 2008) in both initial and ongoing training.
Thanks to 18 laboratories and 3 doctoral schools, the university is also a significant research centre developing major projects, in particular those concerning Biology in conjunction with the Genopole.
Many organisations offer scholarships or grants. Some of these might help you to study for a Master at Université Evry Val d'Essonne!
