Program description

International Preparatory Cycle

The program is open to both French and international candidates following successful completion of their high school diploma. Classes are in English: sciences, soft skills, and project management, with more computer science and mechanics options introduced in the second year.

The pathway gives the option of a third year outside France at one of our partner universities, such as Coventry University, and the opportunity to obtain an undergraduate degree or diploma. Students return to France for their fourth year at Junia HEI or Junia ISEN to earn their Master’s in Engineering. Students also have the option of staying in France during their third year if they prefer.

Advantages of the International Preparatory Cycle

  • All classes are in English
  • Possibility to earn a Bachelor's Degree from a host university
  • Project-based learning and group work
  • Specialization in Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering in the second year

Admission requirements

  • Scientific General Baccalaureate or an equivalent international high school diploma
  • Minimum B1 level in English

Program content

Two Years in France in English

The first two years are taught entirely in English in France. During the first year, students cover common core subjects, including sciences, soft skills and project management.

The second year consolidates this core knowledge and introduces more specialized modules in mechanics and computer science, which are prerequisites for the degree at Coventry.

Possibility to earn a Bachelor's Degree from Host University

Students spend their third year at one of the top-ranked international partner universities, such as Coventry University. At the end of the third year, depending on the partnership, students may be awarded a Bachelor of Science from the host university.
