Top quality international academic training opens the door to prosperous careers and greater job security. It is an "asset" to adapt to all the economic, technological and political changes of our countries.
Staying at home has, anyway, a cost! Whatever you do !
Funding such a training is, for the student and his family, a very profitable investment in the very short term!


  • A simple calculation!
    It is estimated that, regardless of country and occupation,
    1. It takes 400 € a month to live at home or nearly 10 000 € for 2 years!
      It will cost 20 000 € of living expenses for the same period in France.
    2. The 2-year training offered in France costs on average 15 000 € (or less) compared to a training of the same level in your country.
    3. You have to add 1000 € of air ticket.

  • Internships in France, a financial supplement.
    Internships during Masters studies are compulsory. They generally take place in companies and are paid for periods of more than 2 months (minimum of 565 € per month). If we estimate at least 6 months the duration of the courses it is, at least, 3 400 € that will be thus won during the 2 years in France!

  • A largely successful investment after less than 5 years!
    It remains to be financed around € 20,000 which will be, in general, repaid in less than 5 years thanks to the international engineer's salary (a 20% bonus compared to a national engineer's salary, non-contractual data according to the job, the position and location).

  • No unemployment for engineers!
    National Master degrees ("n +" or "i") awarded by the "n + i" Network schools give the same career and employment prospects to foreign and French engineers for positions abroad as well as La France.

  • By 2016, in France, more than 80% of engineering students had job offers before graduating and the unemployment rate was less than 4% for all 800,000 working-age graduates.
