    Location: Lille, France

    Founded in 1066 by the City of Flanders, Lille – Rijsel in Flemish – became an important trading and stock market point on the route between the rich Flemish towns and the Champagne fairs. As evident from some of its architecture, Lille was successively Flemish, Burgundian, and Spanish before finally becoming French in 1667 under Louis XIV, whose military engineer, Vauban, built Lille’s impressive Citadel. Lille is a cultural destination with much to offer. Art lovers stroll the “Palais des Beaux Arts” – home to the 2nd largest fine arts collection in France after the Louvre. Lille is also located close to Brussels (35 min), and Paris (1 hour). Lille is Frances’ 4th largest city.

    Founded in 1875, the Universite Catholique de Lille is now one of the major high education institutions in France. Strongly committed to the development of the region, and to laying the groundwork for the Third Industrial Revolution, through active collaboration with both the local authorities and the business sector. With over 30,000 students, of which 5500 are international students, it is often ranked as the 2nd most beautiful campus in France, it is the largest private non-profit university in France.
