Why URCA ?


The University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne welcomes more than 25,000 students on its various campuses within 13 departments located in the Champagne-Ardenne region. With multiple subjects and locations, it combines an enjoyable environment with quality courses.

The overall objective of the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne is to increase international prestige and this 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.

350 cooperations with 38 countries around the world are currently registered by the URCA. Each year, nearly 12% of international students are welcomed by the URCA, which demonstrates its attractiveness outside the Champagne-Ardenne region.

The International Relations Department (DRI) implements the international policy defined in the quadrennial of the URCA. Its missions are structured along two main and complementary areas : to facilitate the students and professor-researchers’ mobility at european and international levels and promote scientific cooperation with foreign universities.
