3rd year Double Degree

Despite cirumstances related to Covid-19, we remain positive about the improvement of the situation before September 2020. Unless otherwise stated by their home institution, international students are invited to apply to INSA Lyon following the instructions below.  Our teams will do their best to review applications in due time.

INSA Lyon offers the opportunity to integrate a double degree in the 3rd year of its Engineering Master's Degree (5-year course including preparatory level). Students then get both the INSA engineering degree and the partner university’s diploma.

This double cursus provides exceptional training characterised by both institutions teaching approaches. It’s a real added-value as it prepares engineers’ integration in companies of both countries and, more broadly, to evolve in an international context.

More than learning another language and culture, a double degree brings up students adaptability, openness and maturity. Within a very competitive and global job marketplace, a double-degree is a key differentiator. Make the difference!


The recruitment campaign for 2020-2021 is open!
