The main mission of École normale supérieure Paris-Saclay is to train students for research and higher education, by providing them with a top-quality cultural and research education, in the tradition of excellence of Écoles normales supérieures.
Both a training centre and a research centre, ENS Paris-Saclay gathers 13 internationally recognized laboratories, in basic sciences, in humanities and social sciences, and in engineering sciences. 3 federative institutes promote interactions between the laboratories, and give support to interdisciplinary actions, which contributes to ENS Paris-Saclay’s originality and strength.
Bringing together disciplines, which no other institution congregates in such a way or at such a level, is a unique feature of ENS Paris-Saclay. In this environment, students receive a research- based and research-oriented training, reinforced in their own discipline, and at the same time, interdisciplinary and internationally open, leading them to Master’s degree and PhD.
ENS Paris-Saclay is a founding member of Université Paris-Saclay, a world-class scientific university, acquiring strength from 19 grandes écoles, universities and research organizations."
