The University of Corsica Pasquale Paoli:
Anchored in its territory, open to the workd.

Originally founded in 1765 and then reopened in 1981, the University of Corsica Pasquale Paoli is an institution for training and research resolutely embedded in its territory, directly engaged with core issues at a local, national and international level.


Being multidisciplinary, the University of Corsica Pasquale Paoli offers more than 100 different qualifications from baccalaureate to doctorate level issued by 8 faculties, institutes and schools. The ongoing concern of the professional insertion of its 4600 students is based on training with high vocational value, in line with the major and relevant issues linked to its territorial development.


Fully engaged on the path of internationalisation, the University of Corsica encourages its students to develop a culture of mobility. Alongside this, it offers a wide range of cultural and sports opportunities. Personal or group initiatives are also encouraged and recognised.
