Girl Genius

The Paris Institute of the Extraordinary is probably Doctor Hugo Glassvitch's alma mater, and the university where Gilgamesh Wulfenbach and Ardsley Wooster studied together. Presumably Tarvek Sturmvoraus is an alumnus as well. Considering the quality of its alumni, it must be one of the most respected institutions of higher learning on the continent.

How close the campus is to the Island of the Monkey Girls has yet to be determined, but apparently it was close enough for Gil to make Zola's close acquaintance without disrupting his studies overmuch.

Again, it's never explicitly spelled out it's the same university, but Dio Zardeliv and Drusus Beausoleil are probably members of the Institute's faculty.

On the first day of the story Silas Merlot expels Agatha from Transylvania Polygnostic University. According to Simon Voltaire, at some point soon after that Doctor Glassvitch transfers her records to the Institute; possibly in the hope that she will continue her education there.
