Lumière University Lyon IILyon II

Lumière University Lyon 2 is known as one of the top universities in France for research in the field of arts and languages, social sciences and humanities, economics, political sciences and law. It is a large public university with approximately 27,000 students. The University of Lyon was founded in 1896, although the forerunner to the Faculty of Science was begun in 1835, but the Lumière University Lyon 2 only came into being in 1969 as a result of the unrest in France in 1968.  

The University still inhabits the original buildings completed in 1896 in the heart of Lyon on the left bank of the River Rhône, although it has a second campus at Porte des Alpes, on the south-eastern outskirts of Lyon, in Bron and Saint-Priest which houses the teaching and research premises and the cultural and sports activities.
