The Angers University gets 175 additional positions for the next five years

Geneviève Fioraso
After a worrying financial situation one year ago, the perspectives of Angers University are improving. On September 9th, day of the come-back of students in classrooms, the French ministry of Higher Education and Research, Geneviève Fioraso, announced that 35 additional positions would be authorized each year during five years for Angers University. If Mrs Fioraso recognized that the campus was "historically under-provided" in resources, she nevertheless pointed-out that the organization had recruited 96 major positions in the past, a hardly disguised critic to the local management according to some local medias.

The Angers university president, Jean-Paul Saint-André, said that it was a good news because, originally, additional positions had only been permitted for the next three years. In the meantime, the Angers higher education department got € 350 000 to financial urgent repairs of disorders which threatened the use of some places.

It is possible that such an help is linked to good results Angers university got during the last months. In May the Angers won a national prize in robotics and a few weeks before, that university was ranked second in France for the number of students getting their licence in three years. The minister was also due to attend the works on the Technology Universitarian Institute of Angers and to talk with students and managers about the interest of work-study training programs.
