We consider that taking part in those activities is the best way to get into the ENSEA student community, make new friends (French and International alike), quickly improve your French ability and have a real insight into the French culture and way of living.
More than 20% of our students are international students coming from Asia, Africa, South & North America as well as Europe. Each year, we recruit about 10 students via N+i network (14 in 2014). We also welcome American students. 10 come for the FAME Program, built in partnership with 9 American Universities including Georgia Tech, IIT Chicago, SUNY Buffalo, University of Michigan, University of Pittsburgh. In 2015, the university of Michigan also sent us 17 students along with a professor for a Summer Program.
We also have students coming from Erasmus+ (University of Porto, Valencia) and from South America Programs (Brafitec, Arfitec). On top of that, we have agreements with many universities of the world for welcoming their students (for example in Colombia) and sending ours.
In order to facilitate the insertion of international students, we have a buddy system which consists in pairing an international student with a local one who helps for integration.
