The UDP, located in the heart of Santiago, is a highly regarded university recommended by the French Embassy in Chile, and is particularly known for architecture, education, social sciences and economics.
This is the second agreement reached with a Chilean university of Santiago. The Catholic University of Paris already enjoys a relationship with the Pontificia Universidad Católica (PUC) in Santiago. Chile is a country currently expanding its overseas relationships and seeking international partnerships for its educational and scientific projects. While Chile remains primarily focussed on the United-States, cooperation with Europe offers a rich field of possibilities for development.
