International Mobility

International mobility during ESTIA engineering studies

All students simultaneously prepare the ESTIA French Engineering Degree and a 2nd European Masters degree, taught by British and Spanish lecturers.


In addition to this advantage for all students, you can also do the following abroad:

Semester abroad: 

  • Spend a semester abroad without extending the duration of your studies
  • Semester 4 (year 2, semester 2) of the engineering degree
  • Benefit from the recognition of credits based on a course contract
  • Mobility does not enable you to obtain the host institution’s diploma
  • You pay tuition fees to ESTIA (where you are enrolled) and are exempt from paying tuition fees at the foreign host university


Other possibilities:

  • An internship in a company or laboratory
  • In the 3rd year become a full time student at one of our dual diploma partner institutions (Cranfield, Wolverhampton, Salford-Manchester, Bilbao, Madrid)
