Expenses, accommodation, working etc.



This course combines the study of core mechanical engineering topics with language modules. You’ll spend your third year studying mechanical engineering in France. Modules also explore the role of engineering in business and management, and you can specialise in your area of interest with an extended individual project.

In years one and two, you’ll study the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, mathematics and management. French language modules at an appropriate level prepare you for your third year at INSA in Lyon, where you’ll study an agreed set of mechanical engineering courses.

All our students also take the Global Engineering Challenge. Working with students from other engineering courses, you’ll have to find creative solutions to problems. The project looks at challenges faced by communities throughout the world. It’s designed to develop you as a professional engineer and get you thinking about sustainable solutions.
