The Franco-German University (DFH) , French name Université franco-allemande (UFA) , is a network of 194 partner universities from Germany , France and - in the case of trinational courses - other countries.

The aim of the DFH is to intensify the exchange between the universities in both countries in research and teaching . To this end, the DFH particularly promotes binational courses of study with a double degree as well as structured binational doctoral training courses and the formation of networks for young academics. In addition to the Franco-German study programs, tri-national study programs are offered in other countries (Bulgaria, Canada, Spain, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Great Britain, Russia and Switzerland).

The DFH was decided at the Franco-German summit in Weimar in September 1997 and officially founded in 1999. Since then it has served as the central point of contact for Franco-German university relations. The administrative headquarters are in Saarbrücken . Today (as of 04/2018) the DFH supports 6500 students in 186 courses and around 120 university towns.
