University of BordeauxBordeaux

University of Bordeaux, or L'Université de Bordeaux, has had a varied history.  Established by the papal bull of Pope Eugene IV in June 1441 when Bordeaux was an English town,  it was disestablished in 1793, and then was re-founded in July 1896.  In 1970 the University was split into three: Bordeaux 1, Bordeaux 2, and Bordeaux 3. In 1995, Bordeaux 4 split off from Bordeaux I.  In 2007 an association of higher education institutions in and around Bordeaux was formed. Under the on-going educational reforms in France, many of the association members formally merged into one institution, adopting the original name, at the beginning of 2014.

The merger occurred with the following institutions:

  • Université Bordeaux 1 Sciences Technologies
  • Université Bordeaux Segalen (Bordeaux 2)  
  • Université Montesquieu Bordeaux IV 

The city of Bordeaux has a rich history and culture.  It has a population of approximately 250,000 inhabitants, although the metropolitan area is much larger with nearly 1.2 million people.  It is the capital city of Aquitaine region (resulting in its nickname 'the Pearl of Aquitaine') and the world capital of wine, but also has significant interest in the so-called technologies and industries of tomorrow.  In addtion, being on the coast, and near the largest forest in Europe and only a few hours from the Pyrenees, Bordeaux and its region offer a wide range of activities related to the natural environment.
