Every year, working in cooperation with partner universities, Efrei welcomes a number of non-degree-seeking international students who wish to study in France for 6 months to a year. The exchange program is open to both French-speaking and non-French-speaking students who have completed a minimum of 3 years of study at one of our partner universities.
In order for international exchange students to transfer the credits earned at Efrei, Efrei’s international department and the partner university must validate the contents of the study abroad program, which are specific to each student. They are defined in writing in a learning agreement and could include:
Within the framework of bilateral partnership, the tuition fees are waived for non-degree-seeking students in the exchange program.
Efrei has been part of the Erasmus program for nearly 20 years and has now 31 Erasmus partnerships with European universities in 14 countries.
Established in 1987, The Erasmus program or "European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students" offers European students and teachers the possibility of studying abroad in another participating European country for a period of 3 months to a year.
European students participating in the program must sign the Erasmus Student Charter and a learning agreement which sets out the program of studies during the study abroad period. This written document must be agreed upon by the home university, the host university and the student. Any changes to the agreement should be agreed upon in writing by all three parties. Student compliance with the requirements of the learning agreement, guarantees recognition of the study abroad period by the home university.
All tuition fees are waived for Erasmus students.
The BRAFITEC (BRAsil France Ingénieurs TEChnologie) program, a bilateral partnership between Brazilian and French ministers of education and foreign policy, is focused on the development of IT engineering education in France and Brazil. The program is coordinated by the Conference of the Directors of French Engineering Schools (CDEFI).
Through the development of bilateral cooperation projects, the BRAFITEC program promotes the training of engineers, the mutual-exchange of students and instructors as well as the evaluation of curriculums and teaching methodology in the two countries.
Students of Efrei partner universities in Brazil who are interested in applying for the BRAFITEC scholarship can find out more by contacting their school’s international office.
In response to its partners’ demands in North America, Japan, Singapore and Malaysia, Efrei has put in place short academic programs in the spring (1 month in March) and summer (1 month in June), which give international students the opportunity to take courses in ICT, management and French. Credits earned in these short programs are transferable.
All tuition fees are waived for spring and summer school students when the program is part of the bilateral agreement signed with partner universities.
