This summer school is especially dedicated to students attending a scientific program in French language. This 4 weeks program aims at  preparing them to follow a scientific French universitary cursus.

This summer school encompasses both scientific and usual French. It also includes several cultural and industrial visits of Toulouse and its surroundings.

This summer school gathers students from different engineering schools: ENAC, INP-ENIT, INP-ENM, INP-ENSAT, INP-ENSEEIHT, INP-ENSIACET and INSA Toulouse.

The summer school takes place at INP-ENSEEIHT engineering school, located in the heart of the city, and also at INSA Toulouse.

This program ends with an oral scientific poster workshop in French. This event is open to the public and takes place at the magnificent Quai des Savoir building, in Toulouse downtown. This event is shared with IMT Mines Albi, as well as some leisure activities.

Individual support is given to students by a team of skilled French as a Foreign Language teachers. They are assisted by engineering students. Classrooms are equiped with individual computers and internet access.

Foreign students are also helped with their settlement and administrative procedures by the International Relationship office.


This summer school allows students to:

- improve their daily and scientific French,

- foster their acquisition of scientific French (in the engineering field they have chosen),

- ease their integration in the engineering school they will attend,

- become autonomous in their studies.
