4th year Double Degree

The next recruitment campaign for the 2023-2024 academic year will open in February 2023.

In line with the French authorities, we are maintaining our recruitment process for exchange students from our partner universities, until further notice. More information about the situation at INSA Lyon can be found on our website's home page, in our FAQ.

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 curriculum provides exceptional training characterized 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!
