We are not just an establishment of prestige: the University of Perpignan has adopted the pragmatic approach of a centre for higher education and research that is focused first and foremost on helping its students gain a foothold on the job market. As they move about the campus, students will brush shoulders with company leaders, all professionals, experts and specialists from a wide range of socio-economic sectors.
The UPVD has developed expertise in a number of key areas at its various satellite campuses: sport in Font Romeu, tourism in Mende, urban planning law in Narbonne and Marketing techniques in Carcassonne. And finally, the high quality of life that this southern city offers – sandwiched between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean, only one hour from Barcelona – should be emphasised.
