The University of Cergy Pontoise (UCP) was created in 1991. On January 1, 2020, UCP merged with several other higher education institutions to form CY Cergy Paris University (“CYU”). CYU is located west of Paris in the department of Val d’Oise. Its privileged geographical situation allows it to benefit from Paris and its western employment zones.

CYU is a public Institution and a leading centre for teaching and research that welcomes over 1,500 international students from 54 different countries out of a total student body of 25,000 comprising 600 doctoral students, 1200 researchers, and 4132 graduates. With over 1,000 academic staff, the University offers all levels of undergraduate and post-graduate studies and has been ranked among the 20 best national Universities.

CYU has developed international exchanges with over 135 foreign universities, takes part in the European exchange program, and has adopted the ECTS system (European Credit Transfer System), which allows European students to obtain credits in their university for courses taken abroad. CYU has been pointed out as a “Model University” several times by the French government.
