Situated on the French Riviera, Nice is the fifth largest city in France and a major tourist destination. With a beautiful Mediterranean seafront, lavish architecture and world-class cuisine, it’s easy to understand why so many flock to Nice. There is one local university – the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis – and several higher education institutions.
Nice hasn’t always been French – over the centuries it changed hands between the House of Savoy, the First French Republic and the Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia, before becoming part of modern France in 1860. The city has a distinctive Franco-Italian atmosphere because of this history (the father of Italian unification, Giuseppe Garibaldi, was born in Nice and has a statue in the centre of the Place Garibaldi).
The Promenade des Anglais – named for the English tourists who began visiting Nice in the 18th century and eventually paid for its construction in 1822 – is a 4km span of paved seafront that offers uninterrupted views of the Côte d'Azur. A popular hangout for locals and visitors alike, the promenade attracts cyclists, rollerbladers and joggers all year round.
Nice has long been a haven for artists, and this is reflected by the city’s excellent selection of galleries. Among the highlights are the Musée Matisse, Musée Marc Chagall and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MAMAC).
The rest of the French Riviera is within easy reach of Nice – Cannes and Monaco are less than half an hour away, while the large port city of Marseille is just under three hours away.
The University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis is a public university based in Nice, with campuses located elsewhere in the Alpes Maritimes region. This university offers some English-taught Masters, as well as participating in a few Erasmus Mundus Masters in partnership with other European universities.
Other higher education institutions in Nice include the grandes écoles SKEMA Business School and the EDHEC Business School. The Centre International de Formation Européenne (CIFE) also offers English-language Masters.
Tourism is an important part of Nice’s economy, but a diverse range of industrial sectors are present in the Côte d'Azur region. The Sophia Antipolis technology park is south-east of the city and hosts more than 2,000 companies working in IT, health sciences and energy, as well as several higher education institutions.
