Culture & Sport
A wide range of cultural activities are available throughout the academic year: workshops, film debates, science cafés, lectures, exhibitions, concerts, shows, etc. The university has a rich and varied heritage - rare museum collections, an architectural heritage - that is just waiting to be discovered!
The cultural service offers students the opportunity to try different forms of artistic expression in workshops: dance, choral singing, drawing/graphics, drama, rock on the campus, ukulele, sign language, photo lab, etc.
