Signing of the France Transfer Program, a unique agreement with Sri Lanka

Mis à jour le 14/10/2021

Stefan  Seiler, Head of International Affairs and Eric Savattero, Head of Trainings at EPF are back from a mission that took place mid-April with ESTP and ESIGELEC in Sri Lanka. Meeting with the French teams of the three schools of the consortium and the Sri Lankan teams of the American International College (AIC) was an opportunity to officialize their partnership by signing the “Transfer Program”.

The launching of this unique program is the result of a very concrete alliance between three engineering schools – ESTP, EIGELEC and EPF and a Sri Lankan school – AIC.

The objective of the France Transfer Program is to propose an additional program including on the one hand an educational dimension with two years spent in Sri Lanka and on the other hand a professional dimension with the French trainings. EPF is very proud to present this quality curriculum supported by several institutions such as the French Embassy in Sri Lanka or the French Alliance in Sri Lanka.

At EPF, students will be able to choose between 8 majors of the general engineering master course in order to develop their skills and build their professional project. They will also be given the opportunity to apply their knowledge and immerge in a professional environment during their engineering student internship and End-of Year project internship, which is an opportunity that Sri Lankan students do not have in their initial Curriculum.

Throughout their educational curriculum in Sri Lanka and in France, students will be tutored by a team of teachers made up of French language experts and teachers qualified in scientific fields through French as a Foreign Language (FLE) classes. These courses will help them prepare their trip to France but also help them better integrate.

The first Sri Lankan students will be arriving in France in 2021 in order to study in one of the three French Schools of the partnership until graduation. Graduating as a French engineer will make them operational for the French market as well as the Sri Lankan one.

Modification: following the terror attacks of April 21st, EPF shares in the grief of the Sri Lankans and expresses its support to the local teams.
