Pages organization

The whole site is homogeneously structured. A page is organized as follows:

  • A header part which includes the banner of the University, a direct access to the different websites of the University, a search tool and a link to the portal,
  • The main menu with the various parts of the website,
  • a part divided in two or three columns presenting various information. The first column contains the menu of the heading in which you can find useful internal links (directory, contacts, access map). The second column contains the page content. The third column, if existing, shows the breaking news specific to a heading, as well as information on the page where you are (contacts, attachments, .)
  • a footer with various information (site map, disclaimer, accessibility policy, please contact the webmaster and address of the university).
