Academic exchanges


Students go abroad for academic exchanges their 4th or 5th year for one semester or a full year.

ESITC Paris has different types of agreements with its international partners: Erasmus+ agreements in Europe, bilateral agreements, conventions or network agreements.

We are currently working on developing other partnerships with Italy, English-speaking Canada, South America and South Africa.

Selection criteria


When 3rd year students return to campus in January, an information meeting is held with the head of the International Office, the Dean of Studies and Erasmus+ students from the previous year.

Interested students have to write a cover letter addressed to the Director of the school who will select candidates according to their results, language skills and motivation. Once the nomination letters have been written, the head of the international office will help students complete the process with the partner universities and then learning agreements will be prepared and validated by the school administration.



  • Students who study abroad pay their tuition to ESITC Paris.
  • For non-ERASMUS+ university exchanges, the ESITC pays tuition to the host university
  • Each year, the European Commission provides a subsidy to ESITC Paris so ERASMUS+ students can obtain financial aid to partially fund their study abroad experience. In 2017-2018: 6 students received Erasmus scholarships (150 to 180 euros/month)

Attribution of ECTS credits


Each semester is worth 30 ECTS credits.

The semester is validated once the original transcript is sent by the host university.
