The University of Corsica! As the students say: "I mo migliori anni! A superb human and cultural experience, the setting is magnificent, welcoming and warm".

Indeed, to contribute to the development of students, the University of Corsica offers more than 100 diplomas from baccalaureate to doctorate level, delivered by 8 faculties, institutes and schools. As well as a wide range of cultural and sporting activities after classes: concerts, theater, sports meetings, events, etc...

Throughout the year, the campuses address numerous subjects through special days or conferences: environment, law, literature, society, geopolitics and new technologies. According to figures published in November 2018, the University of Corsica is the French faculty with the best success rate in undergraduate studies. In our humble opinion, studying in an environment where the sunshine is higher than the French average necessarily favors students' energy and dynamism.

Let's recall that the University of Corsica Pasquale Paoli welcomes about 4700 students and is the only University present in Corsica. Most of the University's infrastructures are located in Corte (Mariani and Grimaldi), the others are in the Bastia region (Stella Mare), the Ajaccio region (Myrte and Paglia Orba) and in Cargese (the Institute of Scientific Studies).

In spite of the clichés of the Continentals and a controversial image of the Università di Corsica in the media, it remains an interesting alternative for those who want to "Move" and "Succeed"! What about continuing your studies in Corsica?

Strategic Development

The University of Corsica is strongly involved in the socio-economic development of its territory. A territorial implication is not to be opposed to an international opening, on the contrary.

Equipped with specific structures and tools, it develops numerous actions in innovation and creativity, the diffusion of the entrepreneurial spirit, international attractiveness and the promotion of the university identity, the transfer of knowledge and skills from the university to the island territory as well as in societal and environmental issues.

One of the next areas of development is to improve the working conditions of students and staff at the University of Corsica for greater well-being.
