Université de Pau et des pays de l'Adour
The University of Pau and Pays de l’Adour (UPPA) is a multidisciplinary university which covers three major areas of study:
- Law, economics, business, management
- Science and technology
- Literature, languages, arts, social sciences and humanities and sport
UPPA offers its students initial or continuing education, work/study programmes or apprenticeships, to obtain Bachelor’s, Master’s and vocational degrees and Doctorates through its 5 UFRs (Teaching and Research units) and two Doctoral schools.The university also includes two IUTs (University Institute of Technology), one IAE (University School of Management), two engineering schools (ENSGTI, covering industrial technology engineering and ISA BTP covering construction), a continuing education department and an apprenticeship training centre.
An ideal working environment
One of the particular features of UPPA is its location close to the Spanish border, between the mountains and the ocean, on 5 campuses on a very human scale: Anglet, Bayonne, Pau, Mont-de-Marsan and Tarbes.Each campus offers students modern and efficient means of communication, a university library, sports activities, a cultural programme and a range of student associations.The teaching teams at UPPA prepare our 11,500 students to complete their course, but they are also attentive to the needs of students and are always available, and committed to our quality process.Careers guidance and professional advice are also at the heart of each study programme: student professional project, meetings with former students, job fairs, help with finding internships and jobs.
For the second year running, the Ministry has ranked UPPA 12th nationally (out of 80 universities) for student support and success in their degree courses, and 18th for their masters.
A university open to the world
Because of its geographic situation, UPPA is particularly well placed to develop original cross-border cooperation with Spain, by setting up:
- The PYREN Project: IDEFI (Initiative for excellence in innovative training) funded by “investment for the future” from the government,
- Specific bursaries,
- Internships in companies,
- 10 double degrees and joint thesis supervisions (34 in 2015).
UPPA hosts 1,700 international students and offers its own students the opportunity for international mobility through its many partnerships:
- 51 partner countries worldwide,
- 80 inter-university cooperation agreements,
- 179 Erasmus partner universities.
