The French “Grandes Ecoles”

The higher education system in France includes universities and other institutions called the “Grandes Ecoles”.

    • 5 years (Master’s degrees) to 8 years (PhD and post-Master’s degrees) of higher education ;
    • The degree course at the “Grandes Ecoles” includes compulsory internships in laboratories and companies, in France or abroad ; and
    • The prestige of the “Grandes Ecoles” and its contacts with major enterprises provide an easy access to the job market.

International relations include:

  • 100 partnerships with foreign universities ;
  • foreign students, representing 20% of the student body ;
  • 3 students out of 4 spending a 2-month to 1-year period abroad (internship or study program)
