I think that "all" French Universities use OCaml to teach
functional programming  (some of them use Scheme or SML depending of the
years and/or the teachers). Ocaml is also used in "Classe préparatoires",
special schools in France to be engineers.

I also heard that Ocaml is sometime teach in Italian Universities but I am
not sure.
