Studying abroad

Academic international mobility projects can be completed over a semester or a full year during the 2nd or 3rd year of their ENSSAT course at one of our partner universities abroad or under the international student mobility program system.

In order to promote international mobility amongst its engineering students, ENSSAT offers tailored assistance to all individuals during the 2nd semester of the 1st year and the 2nd year of studies. A wiki site containing all relevant information is available to students.

Linguistic educational support

English lessons are increased in order to enable students to improve their ability to communicate effectively when abroad. Other languages taught at ENSSAT including German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese...

Credit validation system

Enssat works under the ECTS system (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) which facilitates the acceptance of completed studies and diplomas between countries. A completed full year equates to 60 credits. Students must therefore achieve a total score of 30 or more credits through their overseas studies. A trilateral agreement between the home university, host university and the student is established. The host university provides a full report card confirming the subjects studied, marks obtained and credits awarded. The home university then validates and registers the credits in keeping with the information detailed within the host institute's report.

Joint degrees

Enssat offers two joint degrees with partner universities at Laval in Canada and at USTH in Hanoï (Vietnam).

Financial assistance towards overseas studies

Enssat engineering-students may be eligible to receive grants contributing towards costs relating to studying abroad within an academic context. These grants are designed to assist students with additional expenses they incur whilst studying abroad. They are not to be used as a means of substituting normal subsistence costs. Students who already receive scholarship/grant payments (CROUS or other grants) continue to receive their allocated payments during the period of overseas studies.
In order to simplify the administrative formalities for our engineering students, a single application for assistance towards overseas costs is submitted to the International Relations secretarial team. The relevant information is then forwarded on to the Rennes 1 University International Projects Service. Depending on an individual's circumstances, different types of non-cumulative grants may be offered:

  • Erasmus grants
  • Ministry of Higher Education and Research grants
  • Brittany Regional Council Ulysse grants

Alternative grants and scholarships not included in those listed above may be available through the Rennes 1 University International Projects Service. Students are encouraged to accept the most advantageous option available them, depending on the nature of their overseas project.
