The Catholic University of Lille


Lille, France


The Catholic University of Lille was founded in 1875. It was with great support of the Catholic Church and a group of Christian businessmen. There are five founding faculties, Arts, Law, Medicine, Science and Theology, then the vocational colleges (paramedical and engineering) joined as well. Colleges and research centers were established around the University in the past years. In 1973, these colleges and centers decided to merge together and then the "Fédération Universitaire et Polytechnique de Lille" was born and is now called the "Université Catholique de Lille".
