Internationally oriented education

For several years now, École Polytechnique has been striving for increasingly internationalized programs. In pursuit of this goal, the Ingénieur Polytechnicien Program is undergoing a profound transformation to place greater emphasis on international experiences. As such, Ingénieur Polytechnicien students now spend on average over 30 weeks of their time on the Program studying abroad. Furthermore, a quarter of the students on the Program come from countries other than France. 66% of students on the English-taught Bachelor Program hold a foreign nationality or dual nationality. This demonstrates École Polytechnique’s commitment to greater international openness, supported in particular by its partnership with the Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE). Finally, the Master of Science and Technology Programs, also taught in English, aim to attract the best candidates from around the world.
