Polytech Marseille is actively committed to a policy of promoting international-mindedness among its students, with the aim of training engineers capable of working effectively in multicultural professional contexts. This initiative enables future engineers to develop their ability to collaborate with partners of different languages and cultures. With this in mind, Polytech Marseille requires 12 consecutive weeks of international mobility to obtain the engineering diploma.
A network of foreign partners
Relationships with numerous partner institutions have been forged over the years, based in particular on research collaborations between our teaching and research staff and laboratories abroad.
Internships and study periods outside France
Student engineers are required to undertake internships or periods of study abroad, as well as working alongside international students who come to the school for several semesters or for entire courses.
International experience adds real value to the career paths of engineering students, and is a real plus on their CVs.
Support for student mobility
Polytech Marseille does its utmost to support students who wish to acquire an international profile. Every year, more than a hundred students receive financial aid (mainly based on social criteria): grants from the PACA region, the Ministry or the European Union to finance their mobility.
Importance of English in the engineering curriculum
Students are prepared for the TOEIC exam (accredited TOEIC center at Polytech Marseille). A minimum score on this test is required to obtain a CTI-accredited engineering degree in France.
Special attention is therefore paid to ensuring that students are fully operational in English in their daily lives as trainees and later as graduate engineers. Areas of the school are dedicated to language teaching, with computer rooms where students can work on listening, video, news and grammar online with specialized sites.
