♦ Facilitate its integration
Coming from abroad to study at a new school can be difficult for a student who is not familiar with the French university system. The school's International Office has set up a support system for students entering an exchange program.
| The tutoring system
It is based on the volunteerism and seriousness of our engineering students. It aims to help new students to integrate more easily, and to better understand the teaching provided and the requirements of the school. We provide incoming students with a support system in finding accommodation through our networks (partner student residences, catalog and our engineering students).
| French as a foreign language
In order to prepare for studies in France, foreign students have the opportunity to take FLE (French as a Foreign Language) courses, specially adapted to engineering students.
