Polytech Lille actively promotes  international mobility. It offers students the chance to develop their ability to adapt to new situations and cultures while broadening their scientific, technical and linguistic knowledge abroad.

The school has thus developed partnerships with institutions recognized for the quality of their engineering programs and their research.

Every year, Polytech Lille welcomes exchange students with at least two years of undergraduate studies either through exchange programs, or as part of a degree program.

An exchange student is a student of a partner university outside France who spends a limited period of time (a semester or a full academic year) at Polytech Lille through a partnership program or bilateral agreements and who is not pursuing a degree at Polytech Lille .

Thanks to programs such as Erasmus +, BCI (Québec, Canada), Brafitec (With Brazil), Arfitec (with Argentina), Mexfitec (with Mexico) and bilateral agreements (with India, Chile, Marocco..), students can come to Polytech Lille for one or two semesters to attend academic courses in our different engineering curricula or carry out a research project supervised by a researcher of Polytech Lille.

Although an exchange student does not get a qualification from Polytech Lille, all academic results are fully recognized by both partner institutions. An agreed number of ECTS credits is established before arrival, and on completion, an official transcript of records is sent to the student’s home university. Polytech Lille has adopted the ECTS sytem (European Credit Transfer System).
The  academic workload for a semester is equivalent to 30 ECTS credits and 60 ECTS for a full academic year.

All our engineering courses are taught in French. A minimum B1 level is required (according to the Common European Framework of Reference Languages).

The International Office

The International Office of Polytech Lille is responsible for partnerships with international universities and several study abroad programs. One of our main objectives is to encourage each of our students to gain an experience abroad during their course.

The International Office also has the pleasure of welcoming students from abroad and facilitating their integration into Polytech Lille.

Located in the building of Polytech Lille (first floor, doors B110 and B112), the international office provides a link between your home University and Polytech Lille.
