Founded in 1831 by the Society of Jesus, the University of Namur (UNamur) carries on the values of the humanistic tradition through teaching and research: universality, quality, ethical commitment and solidarity. Its priority is to educate students and researchers as responsible and active members of society.
The high quality of its teaching and research has ensured UNamur a growing international reputation and has enabled it to conclude many cooperation agreements as well as to develop partnerships and exchange programmes involving students, researchers and professors from all over Europe and beyond.
In its international policy, UNamur pays special attention to cultural diversity and it invests heavily in development programmes. Significant budgets and human resources have been made available to make the stay of foreign guests and students both pleasant and fruitful.
