Last week, the International Programs Department at EPITA had the pleasure to welcome on board a group of 92 international students coming from 20 countries. They are enrolled in our MSc (Master of Science) program and the ME (Master of Engineering) program.
The students have attended the Welcome Week that included presentations introducing the French higher education system, EPITA, the Masters programs and student life on campus.
Also, an orientation workshop has been organized by our team to guide students to finalize their administrative documents starting from the office of immigration procedures, passing by the social security and the CAF till getting bank accounts and transportations cards. In addition to this workshop, all new students have got a guide that facilitates their integration in the French system and reduce the administrative burden. A networking lunch has been organized on EPITA new rooftop to break the ice and facilitate the contact among each other.
The famous Integration Week is the second step after the welcome week in the students’ transition to a new country. We know that students who attend the Integration Week are more confident when they start classes because they have had time to meet friends, know the staff and get settled and finally enjoying sports and cultural activities.
Wish you a fruitful academic stay!
