Université d’Avignon is an exchange destination for Utrecht University Bachelor and Master students of the faculty of Humanities in Avignon, France. The university is also known under its full name Université d’Avignon et des Pays de Vaucluse.
"I would particularly recommend Avignon to students who are looking for a small and cozy city. The city is not very big, but very beautiful and you can travel very easily in Provence. The University is not too big, but the atmosphere is very good. The teachers and the international office are very helpful." - experience from a former exchange student
