How to Apply for the Master of Nanoscale Engineering in Lyon

Below you will find guidance on the application procedure and on the eligibility criteria, as well as tips to obtain your student's visa. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you should have further information.

Eligibility and Selection Criteria

A Bachelor degree in the field of science or engineering, for example Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Electrical Engineering, or Material Science, is required to be eligible for the Master of Nanoscale Engineering. The minimum number of associated credits is 180, which normally corresponds to having completed a three-year Bachelor program. Furthermore, a reasonable command of the English language (spoken and in written form) is necessary.
Note that it is possible to apply directly for the second year of the program if you have already completed - or if you are in the process of completing - a Nanotechnology-related Master year at another university.
The selection committee will evaluate the applicants' files based on their academic background and their motivation letter. Proof of additional qualifications such as language certificates and recommendation letters will be taken into account as well. 

Application Procedure and Deadlines

Applications are open from November 22nd 2021 to January 10th 2022.  

Although there will be a second application session from mid-March to mid-April 2022, especially  for French and European students, international students must apply to the first session in order to get their student visa on time.
We remind you as well that it is mandatory to register via Campus France in parallel, if you apply from a country where the procedure exists.
