Paris is the capital of France, situated in the northern part of the country on the river Seine. It is one of the most famous university cities in the world, frequently taking the top spot in student experience surveys and attracting over 50,000 international students.
As a Masters student in Paris you’ll live and study in one of the world’s most popular tourist cities, surrounded by famous monuments such as the cathedral of Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum and Art Gallery and, of course, the Eiffel Tower. The inside-out Pompidou Centre houses a cutting-edge collection of contemporary art, while the steps up to the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur offer stunning views of the city.
Paris is home to many renowned libraries and bookshops, offering plenty for you to contemplate whilst relaxing in street cafes or along the banks of the Seine. Shakespeare and Company is perhaps the most famous English-language bookshop in Paris, a bohemian haunt for the likes of James Baldwin and Anaïs Nin, and a literary destination to this day.
Movement around the city is made easy by the Paris Metro underground railway system whilst international airports such as Charles de Gaulle enable journeys to destinations further afield. And, yes, there’s also the chance to visit the nearby Disneyland Paris resort (for research into contemporary media and tourism, obviously).
Parisian universities are some of the world’s most acclaimed higher education institutions. They include many of France’s prestigious grandes écoles, offering exceptional qualifications in all academic fields. The oldest university in Paris is the Sorbonne, first founded in the 13th century and operating under a number of names and guises up until the present day. In 2018, Sorbonne University was (re)formed from the merger of Paris-Sorbonne University and the Pierre and Marie Curie University.
Other famous Parisian higher education institutions include the École Normale Supérieure and a campus of INSEAD, which is internationally renowned for the quality of its MBA programmes.
Paris is a major global business centre, home to the headquarters of many multinational companies like AXA, Renault and BNP Paribas. Key business sectors include financial services, ICT, aerospace and multimedia.
