巴黎第十二大学全称瓦尔德马恩-巴黎第十二大学Université Paris-Est Créteil Val de Marne (UPEC)也有人叫,成立于1970，是一所规模小型(10000以下)的公立教学型综合大学
The largest multidisciplinary university in Ile-de-France, the Université Paris-Est Créteil may be described as a bold yet successful enterprise: in little more than 40 years since its foundation in 1970, UPEC has managed to establish itself both as a regionally grounded institution and an internationally oriented university. Only 20 minutes from the heart of Paris, UPEC stands out with its 120,000 square meter campus, its comprehensive programs and state-of-the-art research. The university houses 31 research centers, and 15 components, for a student population of 30,000. Courses and trainings are specially tailored to meet international standards and cover an extensive range of disciplines, from technical degrees to doctorates (Ph. D). Besides, UPEC has signed more than 250 international agreements with universities and laboratories, and enjoys governmental as well as European support. Due to its internationally focused policy, UPEC boasts a rich social diversity and welcomes 3,000 foreign students each year. Special services are dedicated to helping them with their everyday life, such as adapted French courses, easy access to healthcare for all students, and specific support for administrative procedures and accommodation. UPEC’s study offer also includes programs entirely taught in English, as the University welcomes numerous teachers and researchers from abroad.
