The Université de Lyon has implemented an international strategy based on its ability to perform as a globally connected Lyon Saint-Étienne site, recognized worldwide for its focus on higher education and research. This strategy enhances the international visibility and attractiveness of the Université de Lyon for researchers and students with high academic skills and incites them to pursue their studies and career in our academic institutions.
Conducted mainly through the Avenir Lyon Saint-Étienne Program (PALSE)
, our international strategy is based on three pillars: the International Alliance of the Université de Lyon, Espace Ulys and the Institute for Advanced Studies (Collegium de Lyon).
The International Alliance
Espace Ulys consists of a dynamic team of people fully dedicated to welcome and support international researchers and their families in the Lyon Saint-Étienne area. Espace Ulys helps them settle in at their arrival and deal with administrative matters throughout their stay. For further information on Espace Ulys please visit our website
