 Why Faculty of Pharmacy of Nancy?

Founded in 1872, the Faculty of Pharmacy of University of Lorraine, has always been at the forefront of technology and innovation, and is actively involved in research in the fields of pharmaceutical science and technology, as well as in health sciences. Our Faculty provides its 1,300 students with all necessary means to learn in the best conditions: computer rooms, language laboratory, library, practical and tutorial laboratories, scientific and research platforms.

As part of our exchange program our international students can participate in the Community Pharmacy Discovery Day and the Hospital Pharmacy Discovery Day, which is an excellent way to discover the everyday life of a French pharmacist in all its different aspects.

Our student unions ensure the individual chaperoning of each international student, by providing guidance through the lectures, tutorials, administration and everyday life in Nancy.
