Pôle Universitaire Léonard de Vinci (PULV) is a different kind of higher education institution. The university was created in 1995 on the initiative of the Conseil Général des Hauts-de-Seine (Hauts-de-Seine General Council), with a mission to blaze a new trail across the French higher education landscape.

The essential intention behind the creation of PULV was twofold – to ensure the open access and fair admission to education afforded by French state universities, while providing the professional support and career opportunities offered by the very best French higher education institutions – les Grandes Écoles.

Pôle Universitaire Léonard de Vinci consists predominantly of the three founding schools:

  • Ecole de Management Léonard de Vinci (EMLV)
  • Ecole Supérieure d'Ingénieurs Léonard de Vinci (ESILV)
  • Institut de l'Internet du Multimédia (IIM)

PULV is open to students in their third year of study at UNO or greater. In some cases, students in their second year may also be considered.

Courses are taught in both English and French. 

Participating students also enjoy close proximity to the business world. Based in the heart of Europe's largest business district, the vocation of the three Léonard de Vinci Schools is above all professional. PULV's prime objective is to ensure that its students' introduction to the business world is successful.

At PULV, students have access to significant resources, as it is equipped with outstanding teaching infrastructures that inspire ambition in every student. Students benefit from solid support both from the teaching faculty and through their extra-curricula activities.
