International policy

Embracing the international dimension of education and research has long been an important feature of the university’s activities.

Exploring the World

Each year, some 450 students come to study at Bordeaux Montaigne as part of international co-operation and exchange agreements, arriving from across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, and some 300 home students go off to study abroad. The university is immensely proud of this strong international network, the development and promotion of which figures high on the list of strategic challenges to be addressed over the coming years. Pride of place is given to our visiting professor programme, to dispensing teaching in a foreign language and to playing an active role in international networks.
