Amiens is one of the best cities in France in which to live and study (according to the « Etudiant » classification). Amiens is characterised by its student life. Over 31,000 students study there, including nearly 4,000 international students. The city is committed to providing the latter accessible information via an international website. ( The town’s international appeal is particularly due to the broad range of academic programmes available in Amiens, from its university, engineering school, business school to other academic institutions providing professional training.

Amiens welcomes a large number of international students, so each year, the city organises a special event for them, known as Nuit des Etudiants du Monde (World Student Night). Organised in several French cities, the Nuit des Etudiants du Monde in Amiens is a festive event featuring games, museum visits and an concert. This memorable evening is not only a way to celebrate the arrival of new international students in the area but it also facilitates the integration of international students and the creation of inter-cultural links.

Moreover, Amiens is committed to encouraging the mobility of university researchers. It is a partner of the Université de Picardie Jules Verne, which is  a member of the EURAXESS network, which promotes and facilitates the international mobility of researchers and PhD students across 42 countries. Initiated by the European Commission, EURAXESS provides a personalised welcome and assistance for researchers, including information on hosting opportunities, career development, etc.
