Saints Pères Faculty of Biomedical Sciences Faculty of Odontology Faculty of Law University Institute of Technology (Institut universitaire de technologie = IUT) Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Studies Faculty of Medicine Faculty of Pharmaceutical and Biological Sciences of Paris Institute of Psychology Faculty of Human and Social Sciences Faculty of Sports and Physical Education (STAPS = Sciences et Techniques des Activités Physiques et Sportives) The History of the University In 1971, René Descartes - Paris V University was created as a result of the reform of the University of Paris, whose Faculties of medicine, pharmacy, humanities, sciences and law were split and divided into 8 universities located in Paris. The University Institute of Technology, the Faculty of Sports and Physical Education (STAPS), the Faculty of Odontology, the Saints Pères Faculty of Biomedical Sciences were first added to the original René Descartes - Paris V University created in 1971, then in 1976, the Faculty of Law of Malakoff also joined the University. In 2004, the University underwent once again some significant changes. The three faculties of medicine of Paris (Necker, Cochin and Broussais) merged to become the Faculty of Medicine of Paris Descartes (MP5), and hence could offer students decompartmentalised general and specialised teaching, and constitute a federative centre, representative of medicine in Paris. Furthermore, the University was one of the first to implement the Bologna Process (LMD - Degree, Master, Doctorate or 3-5-8) aimed at making the diplomas European. The reform, based on the organisation of the academic teaching in semesters and the capitalisation of credits (ECTS), provides a greater understanding of the students’ skills and makes it easier to study abroad. When it was created, the University chose to be under the patronage of René Descartes (1596-1650) whose scientific approach was truly modern, encompassed all human knowledge and was perfectly adapted to a multidisciplinary university.

Organised in partnership with: Oniris, the Nantes-Atlantic National College of Veterinary Medicine, Food Science and Engineering The Faculty of Medicine at the University of Nantes The Faculty of Medicine at the University of Angers The Higher Education Institute of Agricultures (Groupe ESA) in Angers Over the past years, it has become clear that along with globalization comes new sanitary and health challenges. Interactions between humans,… [+] animals and food can no longer be treated as compartmentalized phenomena. This is reflected by the health crises that have emerged over the past ten years (Avian influenza, H1N1 influenza, SARS...), as well as by the new food production challenges linked to ensuring health within the context of food sufficiency. The 4 higher education institutions and partners above-mentioned have come together to join forces to create the innovative MAN-IMAL programme, which is a training programme supervised by an international jury of experts. The goal of this programme is to train scientists, doctors, veterinarians, pharmacists and engineers in a unique, international setting, and to prepare our students for the team work necessary to take on international public health challenges. Educational, professional and cultural borders will be crossed so that students can share, better communicate and learn from one another. In doing so, we aim to train the “One World, One Health” specialists needed in our rapidly changing and global environment. The programme is notable for the multidisciplinary nature of the teaching involved and the use of innovative educational methods. These include crossover case studies, e-Learning, contributions from professionals, ‘hands-on’ laboratory-based training and internships.

Four campuses that offer fashion and design courses in Milano, Paris, London and Shanghai, 92 different countries of origin for about 2,400 total students: these are just some of the numbers representing… [+] Istituto Marangoni in the educational sector. This diversity is part of that creative, fundamental and indispensable melting-pot for the formation of new talents with a cosmopolitan approach. Istituto Marangoni Istituto Marangoni was founded in Milan in 1935 as the Artistic Institute of Garments Marangoni. Since then, the idea behind the aims pursued by the Institute has always been the formation of professionals and highly skilled technicians for the fashion system. Over the years, this goal has remained unchanged, but the Institute has grown along with the growth of Italian fashion, constantly updating its formation programmes. Through our pioneering vision, this most ancient Italian fashion school has always been able to respond quickly to the labour market requirements, by training young talents through its fashion courses. Nowadays Istituto Marangoni enables its students to learn fashion and design where the greatest designers work, where taste becomes international and where the best job opportunities are, by offering programmes specialising in all areas of fashion: creative, organisational and commercial and in the design fields of interior, industrial and visual design.

Istituto Marangoni and Cappellini: together for design. Cappellini has always been an attentive observer of the development of design trends and has been comparing since several years its own Company philosophy with young students and designers with a different and varying cultural background. Milan represents an extraordinary point of confluence of the most interesting new tendencies in the Industrial Design field coming from all over the world. Therefore, Giulio Cappellini, together with the Company’s Creative Team, has decided to participate in the development of the new Design School of Istituto Marangoni, a special project which connects Milan’s industrial culture and the formative activities of the city.
