Université de Strasbourg

Brief description:
The University of Strasbourg was founded in the 16th century by Johannes Sturm, a protestant scholar. Sturm created a Protestant Gymnasium in 1538 with the mandate of disseminating knowledge, one of the core values of Humanism. Through the years, the Gymnasium progressively developed into an Academy and a University before it finally became the Royal University in 1631. In 1971, the University of Strasbourg was divided into three universities, one faculty for scientific disciplines, one for arts, literature and humanities and one for law, politics, social sciences and technologies. The three universities finally merged again in 2009 and became l’Université de Strasbourg,a unique and pioneering example of merging universities in France, aiming to enhance international exposure and to develop the multidisciplinary aspects of education and research. Today the University of Strasbourg counts 42000 students, offers initial and further education in a wide range of academic fields and is an international player in scientific research and is the second most international university city in France (after Paris).

Università degli Studi di Padova

Brief description:
The University of Padua was established in 1222, after a group of students and teachers decided to come here from Bologna. They set up a free body of scholars, who were grouped according to their place of origin into nations, in which students approved statutes, elected the rector and chose their teachers, who were paid with money the students collected. Defending freedom of thought in study and teaching became a distinctive feature which today lives on in the University motto: Universa Universis Patavina Libertas. Today the University of Padua, with its more than 60.000 students and 5000 staff members (professors, administrative and technicians), is one of Europe’s most prestigious seats of learning; it is a multi-disciplinary university that aims to provide its students with both professional training and a solid cultural background.
