Grande Ecole Programme

Work-Study Track

Apply what you learn in class immediately, become an employee of a company and get a job before you finish your studies.

What is a work-study programme?

Work-study programmes have become the preferred route for students wishing to enter the professional world while continuing their studies. Accessible on the Caen, Le Havre and Paris campuses, the Work-Study Track allows you to spend 75% of the year in a company, i.e. 3 weeks per month in a company.

During your two years of work experience, you can immediately apply what you learn in training, develop your skills and gain professional experience.
