EPF and ESTP are two Engineering Schools with a very high reputation for their degree programmes.
EPF organised its first language courses in 1992 to better prepare its foreign students for study in France. In 1998, ESTP linked up with EPF to provide its exchange students with the same linguistic and cultural preparation.

The seminars prepare the students for their engineering studies in France which include not only numerous cultural and linguistic aspects but also a scientifically oriented curriculum.
Our instructors include specialists in the French language and teachers who are qualified in scientific disciplines and who can present the different methodological approaches used in France.

Although this programme is highly recommended for computer and engineering students, it is also open to other students, administrators and teaching staff who are interested in improving their French.

To facilitate integration of international students in Engineering French schools we provide them with an E-learning tutorial course called PADEN. PADEN is a complement of our French for engineers programmes.

Learning objectives:

  • To develop strategies to understand the methodology implied in French scientific courses as well as cultural awareness
  • To understand both how the courses works and the expectations of science teachers in French higher education (works and class participation)
  • To appreciate the approach to teaching and learning in France compared with other countries

PADEN will enable students to understand the social interaction in French scientific curricula
