Welcoming internationals

Welcoming international students, doctoral candidates, professors and researchers

Strasbourg, the seat of European institutions, offers a lifestyle that is open to Europe and beyond. The University of Strasbourg has nearly 20% international students from 5 continents, out of a total of 48,000 students.

ENGEES participates in student exchange programmes:

  • EUCOR – the European Campus
  • ERASMUS+ (European Union)
  • ARFITEC (Argentina; engineering degrees)
  • BRAFITEC (Brazil; engineering degrees)
  • BRAFAGRI (Brazil; agricultural, veterinary and rural engineering degrees)

Programmes offered

All of the courses and programmes offered by ENGEES are open to international students applying individually:

  • Professional degree
  • Engineering programme (master's level)
  • Co-accredited masters
  • Specialised masters
  • ENGEES-specific degrees

To obtain the ENGEES engineering degree, you must study at ENGEES for 3 academic semesters (criteria for awarding of the French engineering degree, defined by the French Engineering Qualification Commission). 

Students who wish to apply to ENGEES individually must meet the requirements indicated for the relevant programme.

In particular, registering on the CampusFrance website of the home country, if it exists, is mandatory but does not constitute an application to ENGEES 

You must also apply through our website as well. We will also request your CampusFrance registration number.

Concerning exchanges between partners and double degrees, the programmes concerned are the engineering programme and the co-accredited masters. The courses available to the relevant students are presented in the downloadable document (in French) or by consulting the detailed catalogue.  The downloadable document also provides practical information regarding topics such as administrative formalities, budget, etc.

You're a student at a school that partners with ENGEES (see the list here) and you would like to come study in Strasbourg? Whether it be for 6 months or 3 years, we would be delighted to welcome you!
