ParisTech International Admission Programme
ParisTech co-ordinates recruitment of the best international students for all of its Grandes Écoles. Due to this operation, more than a hundred students come to study in the institutions each year.
ParisTech has chosen to focus its efforts on three priority areas:
- South America, with Argentina, Brazil and Colombia
Europe, and in particular Russia
In Brazil, several universities are partners in this system with the possibility of a double-degree course at the engineering degree stage for French and Brazilian students.
In China, ParisTech relies on a network of partner universities from the most prestigious ones, and where the pooled recruitment programme is in place for the engineering degree stage.
In Russia, the students benefit from a double-degree agreement with the State University of Novosibirsk, which enables them to simultaneously obtain a degree from ParisTech and from their original institution.
In 2015, ParisTech has opened in Colombia a coordinated admission programme intended to the best students of the country, in partnership with 4 prestigious universities and schools.
In 2019, ParisTech has opened in Argentina a coordinated admission programme also, in coordination with the University of Buenos Aires and the University of Cordoba.
The ParisTech International Admission Program is supported by the governments, but also by industry, for which engineering training based on the French model remains an important priority for its development strategy.
ParisTech schools admit international students generally in the second year of the "diplôme d'ingénieur", i.e. at master level (1st year).
They can get a double degree (diplôme d'ingénieur of the ParisTech school and a master degree from their home university) if there is any double degree agreement between ParisTech and/or the school and the university.
