Welcome to the exciting opportunity of doing an exchange program at ECE in Paris !

ECE welcomes students from all over the world for a semester or a full year, coming form our partner universities with whom we have a bilateral agreement.

Students willing to come as full-time students will need to apply through International

Admissions Office.


International students enrolled in our Exchange program can select courses from different master programs we offer. Please note that bachelor course are only held in French.

More information on the program can be found at the following page.


In cooperation with the student association ECE – International,  the International Relations Office offers a Buddy Program for international students.

As part of this initiative, students from ECE provide the newly arrived international students with active advice and assistance. International new arrivals will receive individual support from the moment they arrive, including information on recreational activities, creating a timetable and finding a room. The aim of the Buddy Program is to promote intercultural encounters between French and international students.

ECE International is a student association of ECE. It organizes many events for the French and international students of the school: tastings, trips, visits, etc.


ECTS – The European Credit Transfer System

The ECTS system is used by universities and schools for exchange students. ECTS allows credits taken at one higher education institution to be counted towards a qualification studied for at another. When applying for an exchange programme you will need to submit a Learning Agreement.

The Learning Agreement should include all the learning outcomes the student is expected to acquire during the exchange; each course is credited with an ECTS credit. The number of ECTS credits allocated to each course unit is calculated based on the overall volume of work required for the student to meet the learning outcomes at the end of that course unit. It does not only include course attendance hours but also covers practical learning activities and the student’s

Recognition of academic qualifications

60 ECTS credits represent the workload for one academic year and, therefore, as a general rule, 30 ECTS credits are equivalent to one semester of study. ECTS credits, indicate the required workload to complete a study programme, or a module within a study programme. ECTS points only indicate workload; they do not indicate a grade.

The Transcript of Records will only be sent to the International Office of the home university up to 6 weeks after final exams.

Only the courses included in the Learning agreement will appear on the official Transcript of Records.
