Incoming mobility

For several years, Télécom Physique Strasbourg has been developing an ambitious international mobility policy aimed at attracting foreign students interested in the French culture to join its training programmes. It includes the possibility of partially following the Graduate School Engineering program or the Master's degree.

There are currently 3 major programs that fully or partially finance the mobility of students who come for a semester or a year to study at Télécom Physique Strasbourg.

Learning for successful integration: PADEN, FLE

Télécom Physique Strasbourg offers the opportunity to enroll in programs that help to learn methods (PADEN) and languages (FLE - French as a Foreign Language).


As an online training course specially designed for non-French-speaking students who wish to study in a scientific higher education school of the Mines-Telecom network, PADEN supports you in the preparation of your stay:

  • introduction to French work techniques in a methodological and intercultural way
  • understanding of how the courses work and how to meet the requirements of teachers

Please note that PADEN includes neither language training course nor French culture training. The level of French required is as follows: intermediate (B1) and high (B2, C1).

FLE - French as a Foreign Language

Level B2 in French is required to access the School's training courses. French as a Foreign Language courses can be continued with partner organizations after your integration.

The IIEF (International Institute of French Studies) of the University of Strasbourg offers:

  • annual or bi-annual training for national diplomas (DELF B2 / DALF C1 / DALF C2) or university diplomas (A1 to C2),
  • internships or summer courses to develop your skills in spoken and written French.
