About

History

The establishment initiated the first French university foundation in agricultural sciences, "SupAgro Fondation", the UNESCO Chair on World Food Systems and three Chairs: AgroTIC, AgroSYS, and Elsa-PACT. 

Education

The aim is to enable all graduates to work in at least two foreign languages, and to be prepared for internationally oriented professions thanks to an ambitious policy of learning several foreign languages, internships, academic mobility around the world, and double degrees with international universities.

Research

Montpellier SupAgro contributes to agricultural research thanks to the involvement of its researcher-professors in 22 research units and 4 joint technology units. Montpellier SupAgro's scientific teams collaborate closely with major research organizations based in Montpellier (INRAE, CIRAD, IRD...) and regional higher education institutions (University of Montpellier, Paul Valéry University, University via Domitia of Perpignan, CIHEAM-IAMM...). It also manages two experimental agricultural platforms (viticulture, sheep farming, olive cultivation) dedicated to R & D and exchanges with professionals.

Student Life

Campus life

The historic Montpellier SupAgro campus is being transformed to meet the needs of new training programmes which require open, shared and connected space. These changes are being made while respecting the superb environmental quality of the campus, and by maintaining coherence between the establishment’s different sites.

Sports facilities

In addition, practicing a sport fosters the development of multiple skills related to setting up and implementing projects. Sports activities are therefore taken into account in the first year engineering training curriculum and validated through BDS Sports, an attractive, dynamic and responsible association.

Student clubs

Extra-curricular activities contribute to students' overall well-being and help them develop skills and know-how useful for their future careers.

  • The Arts Office (BDA in French) supports arts-related clubs (creative arts, auditorium, library, choir, cooking, guitar, rock band, improvisation, photo, theatre...).
  • The Sports Office (BDS in French) assists in the management of physical activities and sports.
  • The Student Circle (Le Cercle des Elèves) organizes student events, including orientation week-end, student parties, and charity events, and manages many student clubs.
