Become “ensicaennais” !

International students who wish to pursue an academic period to study for a Master of Science degree and depending on their level of studies are admitted to the Bachelor 3, Master1 or Master2 year. According to their mobility project, they have the possibility between being an exchange student, a double degree student or a fully enrolled ENSICAEN student.

The quality of how they are welcomed, the accommodation and their integration is a major preoccupation of ENSICAEN.

That is why they are taken care of by the International Club’s engineering students when they arrive and receive support from the International Relations Office which provides continuous follow-up to facilitate administrative and logistic procedures. The international students also participate in cultural and convivial events organized by the International Club or the Student Office during the year.

Where do
our international students come from ?

Please find below some examples of mobility accomplished by our international students:

Multicultural exchanges
for every students

Multicultural exchanges are at the heart of our school. The international mobility is mandatory for french students. Even international students may have a new mobility during their studies in ENSICAEN. We are helping our students all along their period abroad, from the preparation of their project to its funding.

The school assists the engineering students with their mobility with funding from the territorial collectivities, especially the Normandy Regional Council (Conseil Régional de Normandie) and the government.

With 110 cooperation agreements and exchange programmes with foreign universities all over the world, the international office of Ensicaen supports students to go to Europe (Erasmus +), on the American continent (Canada/Quebec- Pee, Brazil –BRAFITEC ; Argentina – ARFITEC), in Asia and Oceania (China, Japan, Australia, New Zeland).

Languages taught at ENSICAEN

First foreign language : English
Second foreign language : French, German or Spanish
Third foreign language (optional) : Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, German, Spanish or Italian.

A 4 month period abroad is included in the engineering course, mandatory for french students, optional for foreign students.

This period abroad can be completed in different ways

  • Internships : abroad during the second or third year. Studying abroad adds value to your studies. Such an experience shows your dynamism, flexibility and communication skills.
  • Academic semester in the third year : engineering students have the opportunity to build their own specialized studies programme with a foreign university.
