International students: welcome at EPF!
Publié le 13/09/2016
The start of courses for the new nternational students took place in late August on the campus of the Sceaux. This year, students from all nationalities have integrated the various courses offered by the EPF Engineering School, for a semester or more.
Welcome to students in exchange
Coming from Mexico, Venezuela, China, Taiwan, Iran, Colombia, Peru and many other countries, new international students were able to meet and talk with EPF students during a welcome party organized by the association ESN Sceaux. These students are coming from different partnerships from EPF at an international level: exchange semesters, N + I network or double degree with a foreign university. The EPF now has 152 partners in 46 countries.
Having foreign students coming each year allows EPF to cultivate this openness to the world and the diversity within project teams, essential for engineers of tomorrow.
Students of "PrépaVogt" also started their courses
On September 1st, 4 Cameroonian students began their studies at the EPF in third year. From a long-standing partnership with "PrépaVogt" school in Yaounde, Cameron, 4 students have left their homeland to pursue their engineering studies in France and particularly at the Troyes Campus of the EPF. They will now complete their studies through a third year of general training before making their major choice. They were greeted by Arnaud d'Aboville, director of Troyes Campus , AGORA, a student organisation, and members of the administrative and teaching staff.
We also welcome students from Germany or Quebec integrating the EPF for a year as part of their binational training, as well as 10 students from China that integrated the EPF in Troyes.
