ANGOULÊME, THE FIRST CESI CAMPUS IN FRANCE TO OPEN THE PROGRAM
At CESI, everything is organized to allow international students to adapt, at their own pace, to the way higher education works in France. Our teams are committed to helping them prepare for their arrival in France and their integration into the CESI Graduate School of Engineering, in particular thanks to the Care Program, where students are supported in their academic career by a student ‘buddy’ throughout the school year.
For the new 2023 academic year, CESI Graduate School of Engineering has decided to go one step further, in line with its values of social advancement, by setting up the French Engineering Pathway: a program dedicated to both French speaking and non-French speaking international students holding an undergraduate degree (bac +2), so that they can prepare for engineering studies and adapt to French culture during one school year thanks to an adapted training pace.
For several years, CESI Graduate School of Engineering in Angoulême has been welcoming many foreign students. This year, nearly thirty students from countries including Benin, Cameroon, Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire and Morocco have arrived at the CESI campus in Angoulême to join the very first CESI class of the French Engineering Pathway.
