Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines

Rooted in principles of multidisciplinary, autonomous, and participation-based education, UVSQ provides an atmosphere of exploration in the advancement of knowledge.  Scientific and technological research, cultural understanding, and international networking, are but a few reasons why the University is a valued participant in Europe’s world of higher education.

Alongside UVSQ's long-standing research relationship with the University of Potsdam, it also facilitates a broader ERASMUS exchange with several British universities, Vilnius University in Lithuania, and other universities across North America and Europe.  The Department of Humanities, working with ENGLOBE, offers in depth insights and tools into English, French and Spanish literature, as well as the multi-disciplinary studies of Literature, Language, and Civilization.
