Saint-Martin-d'Hères Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 29 photos

The campus of Grenoble is built mostly in the city of Saint Martin d'Hères and for a small part on the neighboring city of Gières.
Saint Martin d'Hères is not only a campus but I will here present only that part of the city.

Grenoble Universités is a structure that federates the 4 Universities of Grenoble. The following is borrowed to their site.

6,000 foreign students
3,200 students registered for French as a foreign language courses
Thousands of foreign executives
2 international secondary schools
40 foreign communities
150 cultural and international associations
more than 80 countries in contact with Grenoble research teams (of which 80% in EU countries and North America).

Grenoble, an international research venue.

These international networks, the fruit of each establishment's past and their bonds with other academic bodies, are organized through European student mobility programmes and bilateral and multilateral agreements.

The agreements cover the exchange of students, researchers and teachers, and joint teaching programmes such as dual degrees and co-tutored theses. They cover every area of science. The diversity of the student population attending Grenoble universities reflects their international dimension, hosting more than 6,000 foreign students, who account for 10% of the total student body.

A favourable context for learning languages.

Eighteen languages are taught in Grenoble universities (German, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, English, Spanish, Dutch, Rumanian, Arab, Modern Greek, Portughese, Serbo-Croate, Catalan, Italian, Polish, Czech.

In the middle of the campus Maison des Langues et des Cultures offers all students complete courses and separate modules, in classes or for self-learning.

    Thanks, Jean-Louis, for your visit to my new Queckbronn page, and for putting in a link to it here because of the Planetary Trail. As I mentioned when I visited your Saint-Martin-d'Hères page in 2005, my younger son did his Erasmus year at UPMF.

    Interesting looking place with so many outstanding buildings and sculptures, some of which look a bit weird to me. But I like the mountains in the background the most.

    Très intéressant! J'ai visité le site de l'université Stendhal, mais je n'ai rien trouvé pour moi, ou bien j'ai mal cherché.

    :-) as a chemist, my heart bleeds thinking of such thrilling places to study sciences - I love the setting in the mountains and the sculptures - mainly the artificial mountain :-)
