Tapping into its rich intercultural talent pool, with more than 150 nationalities represented at its university campus, the Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA) puts on events and activities to shine a spotlight on the diversity that forms a keystone of its identity. These initiatives help to promote a truly open-minded attitude to the world among students and staff alike.

International Days festival

Every October since 2016, the Promotion & Internationalization unit has organized this festival bringing together initiatives with an international dimension that have been put forward by all players within the establishment and by various external partners, particularly associations in Grenoble. With nearly 1500 participants over a period of about two weeks, the festival aims to raise awareness of international and intercultural issues amongst students, personnel and the general public by means of seminars, shows, exhibitions and workshops.

French cultural awareness activities

The University Center for studying French as a foreign language (Centre Universitaire d’Études Françaises - CUEF) in Grenoble organizes cultural and leisure activities and events throughout the year, aiming to raise awareness of French culture amongst the visiting members of our international community and thus contribute to building a friendly student community within the UGA.
