Universite Catholique de Lille was founded in 1875 with the active support of the Catholic Church and a group of Christian businessmen.
As a comprehensive university, Universite Catholique de Lille offers 160 distinct degrees in several major fields of study.
Research in our university is part of a continuum that goes from the most basic research work to the more specialized, always seeking to respond to business needs. Its particularity is that it is carried out in an environment where Faculties and Schools meet and collaborate together through many different disciplines.
It is very difficult to find housing upon arrival in Lille, so we strongly recommend international students to make sure that they have housing before they arrive in France.
