Second semester (location: school campus chosen for the master) from January to June:
Participation in the activities of students engineers of M0 (1st year of the cycle of engineers) for a better integration and preparation to the master programme (French course FLE, practical work, directed exercises, courses, personal work ...).
In June, depending on the profile, students will be offered either an internship or a French language course in a PIL.
Academic PreMaster costs are € 8 500 (price in 2017) and include:

Option 1: A guaranteed master in initial training.
Subject to validation of the PreMaster and the 60 ECTS credits required for enrollment in a Master (M1 + M2), the student will continue his master's studies in one of the schools of Network "n+i".
Option 2: A master with apprenticeship
Subject to being selected by a company for an apprenticeship contract.
Since 1987, in France, it is possible to obtain a diploma of higher education by practicing the alternation between school and company under contract of apprenticeship. Today, more than 15% of graduates are apprentices.
At the end of the 2-year period, this apprenticeship training offers an engineering degree recognized by the accreditation organisation CTI. Apprentices-students benefit from the help of the company to pay the training, from a monthly salary and at the end of the training a first professional experience in a company in France.
What is the cost of training for the apprentice-student? €0
The training is funded by the regional councils and a special tax "apprenticeship tax"; Apprentices receive support for travel, accommodation and catering. They are tax-exempted for most of their income.
Do I have the same degree?
YES: apprenticeship is a modality, degree is the same whatever the modality is.
You get an engineering degree (master's degree) and the company participates in the evaluation.
Competence certification is done in real situations!
