Télécom ParisTech

Entry requirements

The Diplôme d'Ingénieur is similar to a Master of Engineering, although its field of study is much wider. It involves studying Communications, Electronics, Computer Science, Sound & Image Processing, Networks, Business & Management, Social & Human Sciences, and more.

One can enter the Telecom ParisTech Master of Engineering (Diplôme d'Ingénieur) as of the 1st year, or go directly into the graduate programme.

Entering in the 1st year

Concours Commun (written exam)

Foreign students who wish to integrate the Master of Engineering (Diplôme d'Ingénieur) as of the 1st year must pass the Concours Commun (written exam), like any other French student. The student's level of French must be very high. More (in French)

Admission par voie universitaire (accepted upon university degree) - More (in French)

Entering the graduate programme (2nd and 3rd year)

There are three programmes that allow foreign students to integrate the Diplôme d'Ingénieur in the graduate programme if they are students in a School with whom we have a bilateral agreement. European students can benefit from the Erasmus programme which allow them to obtain a grant from their University.

  • Double Diplôme (Joint Degree)
  • Auditeur Libre
  • Admis sur titre (accepted upon degree).

Erasmus

The Erasmus agreement is for European students only. It is an agreement between European countries that allows students to continue their studies in another European School, with a grant from the state.

The Erasmus student may join Telecom ParisTech for either one academic year as Non-degree student or one and a half year as Double degree student.

Double Diplôme (Joint Degree)

Some students can integrate the Diplôme d'Ingénieur in the 3rd year by doing a Double Diplôme. That means that at the end of the 3rd year, they graduate in both their original School and Telecom Paris. The Double Diplôme is only possible for students from schools with whom we have a bilateral agreement.

In order to follow this programme, students must come to Telecom Paris for a year and a half, during which they have to follow two semesters of classes and to complete a 6 months internship in France.

All of these students will have to fill in and send the application form.

Education within bilateral agreements is completely free of charge.

Auditeur Libre (Non degree students)

The Auditeur Libre agreement is a bilateral agreement between certain Schools which allows European or non-European students to come and study at Telecom ParisTech. It is roughly the same situation as the Erasmus agreement, only without governmental implication.

All of these students will have to fill in and send the application form.

Admis par voie universitaire (accepted upon university degree)

Students can join the graduate programme as what we call Admis sur titre (accepted upon university degree). More information on the "Admission par vie universitaire" (in French)
