The University of Reunion Island is a meeting place for knowledge dissemination and different cultures, and welcomes several hundred foreign students annually.

A vector of dynamism and openness to the world, the development of partnerships with foreign universities represents one of the University's strengths. Different exchange programmes, ERASMUS, CREPUQ, PPI and ISEP already link it to European, Quebec and American universities, while new partnerships are being formed with South African, South Korean and Chinese universities.

Studying at the University of Reunion Island is a chance to discover Reunionese society and culture, but also to meet students from over 50 nationalities.

The University of Reunion Island focuses on welcoming foreign students. The International Relations Office supports the students in preparing their stay. They then welcome them at the airport, and assist them in all their arrangements, from university enrolment to opening a bank account.

Meanwhile around a hundred Reunionese students go abroad every year to acquire new knowledge and perfect their proficiency in a foreign language.
The University of Reunion Island also has numerous research partnerships with foreign universities.
