International experience is strongly encouraged for all students in the engineering cycle. Students admitted to the ENSCR are aware that an experience in a foreign country is a great added value to their training. To this end, the ENSCR has established numerous university partnerships to fully experience the opening to other cultures and other ways of thinking, learning and working in Europe or in the rest of the world.

Internships abroad are possible in university laboratories or in companies. It is up to the student to find an internship in the structure and country that suits him/her, using a database, the teaching staff, the internship manager, the SEMI, the alumni network, etc.
International mobility is a considerable asset for students and their future professional integration. We encourage students to do their second year internship abroad. Our university partners can host interns in their research laboratories. You will find the list of our partners below.
Engineering students wishing to spend one or more semesters abroad can do so in the 3rd year of the engineering cycle. Depending on the destination and the length of the stay, financing is possible. The ENSCR has signed agreements for obtaining a double degree, i.e. the title of engineer from the ENSCR and the title of Master or Engineer from the partner institution.
The study methods and the choice of modules differ according to the universities. It is important to find out early on about the courses offered and the application deadlines.
Studying abroad in EI 3 – Various possibilities
Within the framework of the Erasmus+ agreements for the promotion of academic exchanges within the European Union, ENSCR students can spend their first semester of the 3rd year in a partner country, and validate 30 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System, a system common to the entire European Community), a value which represents the volume of work/EU of the semester in question. The ENSCR has Erasmus+ agreements with many countries, including
- Spain: University of Murcia, University of Seville, University of Valencia, University of Santiago de Compostela
- Germany: Technische Universität Chemnitz, Martin Luther Halle University Wittenberg, Hochschule Emden Lee
- Denmark: University of South Denmark Odense
- Finland: Abo Akademi University Turku
- Czech Republic: University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague,
but also Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Switzerland, Turkey…
Double degree with several universities
ENSCR students can also do a double degree abroad. These students leave the school after the 2nd year of the engineering cycle and follow, depending on the agreement signed, between one and two years of a Master’s degree in one of the chemistry courses offered by the university. These exchanges allow them to obtain the ENSCR engineering diploma and the Master’s or Engineering degree from the partner university.
Please find below the list of double degrees within the ENSCR :
- Germany and the Franco-German University (UFA): University of Dresden, Stuttgart, Saarebruck
- Canada University of Quebec at Chicoutimi UQAC
- Brazil Federal University of Uberlandia and the Pontifical University of Curitiba
- Denmark University of South Denmark
- Spain Polytechnic University of Valencia and the University of Seville
- Czech Republic University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague
- Russia: St Petersburg State Institute of Technology
Administrative formalities and financial aid
The International Studies and Mobility Department works to help students spend part of their studies abroad. A mobility grant can be awarded according to precise criteria, depending on the nature of the internship (in a company or university), the location (Europe or outside Europe), and social criteria (grant holder or not).
