A photo-book Les plus belles universités du monde (The most beautiful universities in the world), created by photographer Guillaume de Laubier and university professor Jean Serroy, allows for a sneak peek into places not everyone can visit on a daily basis.
The book takes us on a journey through the most beautiful universities in the world, from the noble University of Bologna, the oldest university in the Western world, to the high-tech modern universities in Lausanne and Doha. The pictures show beautiful architectural heritage, while short descriptions enable one to learn more about the universities.
