International Cooperation

Map of international cooperations

The overall objective of the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne is to increase international prestige and it is clearly stated in the quadrennial. The main areas of our policy are to promote European and international mobility of students and professor-researchers and to develop scientific cooperation with foreign universities.

274 bilateral ERASMUS+ agreements and 58 framework agreements are currently registered by the URCA. The URCA has 236 partner universities in 54 countries across the world. Each year, more than 800 foreign students are welcomed by the URCA, which demonstrates its attractiveness outside the region.

Partnership agreement

What is a partnership agreement?

Most partnership agreements are bilateral agreements but if signed in a multilateral context, they are called “framework agreements”.

The signature of a partnership agreement between the URCA and a foreign university allows to:

  • facilitate students, teachers, managerial and administrative staff’s exchange between the two institutions
  • encourage the participation in projects and bilateral and multilateral research and development programmes
  • cooperate in training programmes for research and technical staff
  • give mutual recommendations in matters relating to the activities of the two parties
  • encourage reciprocal exchanges of books, literature and other research materials
  • promote all types of activities considered as of mutual interest

How to sign a partnership agreement?

The Office of International Affairs (DREDI) negotiates the agreement with the foreign higher education institution and submit it for an advice to the council of concerned authority: CE/CA (instituts), CG (UFR).
The agreement is signed by the President of the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne upon receiving a favorable opinion of the council board.

A standard partnership agreement is available at the DREDI in different languages (English, Spanish, German)
