Study Abroad Programme
Who can study abroad?
Any student in their 2nd year at IPAC (BTS or Bachelor) can apply to continue their studies for the following year in a partner university abroad. They will then do their 3rd and final year of their Bachelor's degree in one of the 70 partner universities. They can go either under the European Erasmus + programme or under bilateral agreements between IPAC and foreign universities. The request must be made to the International Office before the 15th of December of the year in which the student completes his/her 2nd year at IPAC.
How do I apply to study abroad?
A presentation of the possibilities of going abroad will be made to each IPAC 2nd year class between the 15th of September and 30th of November. To participate in a study abroad programme, the student must contact the International Office before the 15th of December of the current year for a possible mobility in September. The student must complete and return by e-mail to the International Office before 15 December the Request for Study Abroad Form.
What is the deadline for applying to the university?
Depending on the university, the application deadlines variy from January to May for the first semester and from September to November for the second semester.
The International Office offers the student a selection of study programmes according to his/her aptitudes, professional and personal projects and plans for further study. The choice of destination will be made between January and March of the year before departure. A selection of students based on their level of English may be made for certain destinations.
The final selection of students for each destination will be based on the student's application file (grades, teaching staff's assessment, course attendance and motivation). Once the destination has been chosen, the International Office will help the student to complete his or her application file at the partner institution.

Before departure, the student will be given a Learning Agreement with the list of subjects chosen. This Learning Agreement can be modified but must always be validated by Ipac Bachelor Factory. The student will then have to follow the courses and take the exams (tests, mid-term exams, oral exams, files, etc.) planned for each of these subjects while respecting the constraints given by the teacher and the institution. The grading system and evaluation criteria are those in force at the partner institution and the student must comply with them. Upon receipt, the student must send to the International Office a copy of his/her official transcript of records, which will allow the validation of the number of ECTS credits necessary to validate the year (30 ECTS credits for a semester, 60 ECTS credits for the year). If not all the ECTS credits are validated, catch-up courses will be offered.
