Description M1
The second year of study (M1) is made up of fundamental and optional courses involving advanced theories in statistics. Second-year classes carry on from the first-year studies with a combination of introductory and in-depth classes. Some form the core syllabus, and others are taken as options to enable students to start specializing in one of the principal fields in which statistics is used by choosing their classes during the second semester. Statistical engineering students make their choices on the basis of their intended third-year specialization. The students learn the techniques essential for their future profession as statisticians and also have specific classes in high-level computer language. Applied work group projects permit the students to apply, from real-life data, a wide range of knowledge acquired during the first two years of study. These projects are closely followed and monitored by professionals and academics alike.

The end of the M1 year leads to the Applied Statistical Internship lasting at least 8-12 weeks, starting in June. Students write up a 10-15 page report on this internship on which their work experience is assessed. This report provides a reasoned presentation of the statistical methods used and the principal results. This report provides a reasoned presentation of the statistical methods used and the principal results. This internship must be carried out within a current market competitive company, a public or private research centre or a government organisation or administration. The objective of the internship is to ensure the practical application of the theoretical teachings. The following are examples of internship themes: statistical analysis and SAS programming; the development of statistical tools for the evaluation of nutritional programs on test; clinical data management and statistical analysis; credit card analytics; statistical software development for generalized linear and non-linear mixed models.

Note: the first semester of the ENSAI's 2nd year (M1) is highly adapted to each n+i student and is modified on an individual basis and therefore changes with each student. It also will include French language courses.

Scholarships M1
Foreign students through n+i may be eligible for the scholarships available from the "n+i" Network (Bni). Other than those, there are also some possibilities: • International students are entitled to an accommodation allowance (APL/ALS) from the French government to help with the cost of rent. • Gustave Eiffel scholarships from the French government (BGF) for international students admitted to a degree awarding program and showing proof of outstanding academic performance (application deadline in December). • French Embassy scholarships program: For more information contact the local French Embassy. When other foreign students (non-n+i students) come to ENSAI, other grants or scholarships they may receive come from their home country and/or sending institution (if they're studying abroad temporarily from another university or engineering school).

Description M2
The third year of study (M2) seeks to provide students with a genuine specialization while at the same time introducing them to the professional world. Most of the teachers are from the professional sector, giving students an introduction to the sort of problems they will handle after graduation. This introduction is completed by professional seminars which are held throughout the year to complement theoretical classes. The following six specializations are offered : Risk Management and Financial Engineering, Quantitative Marketing and Revenue Management, Data Modeling for Spatial Analysis and Health Economics, Advanced Statistical Engineering, Data Science, and Biostatistics. These specializations allow students to specialize in one area of advanced statistical applications.
At the end of the third year (M2), the End-of-studies Internship adds a new professional dimension to the students' scientific studies and is the final step that allows students to obtain their degree. Beginning in April and lasting 5 to 6 months, this internship enables the students to apply what they have learned in their third, specialized year of studies (M2). Students work in the statistical, I.T., or economics departments of public or private companies in France or abroad, and learn how to draw on what they have learned and discover their future professional environment. Students write a report on this period and then have an oral defense in November. The jury, or examining board, then decides whether or not to validate their internship on the basis of the report from the president of the jury.

Foreign students through n+i may be eligible for the scholarships available from the "n+i" Network (Bni). Other than those, there are also some possibilities: • International students are entitled to an accommodation allowance (APL/ALS) from the French government to help with the cost of rent. • Gustave Eiffel scholarships from the French government (BGF) for international students admitted to a degree awarding program and showing proof of outstanding academic performance (application deadline in December). • French Embassy scholarships program: For more information contact the local French Embassy.
