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 70 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, Mexico –MEXFITEC), in Asia and Oceania (China, Japan, Australia, New Zeland).
