ParisTech launches an international online recruitment campaign

ParisTech has been recruiting international students in emerging countries - Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, Russia - for more than twenty years. Each year its schools promote their engineering programs in partner countries. Due to the global health crisis linked to COVID-19, ParisTech schools are adapting and launching their online promotion campaign for the start of the 2021 academic year.


A hundred students recruited each year, after a drastic selection

ParisTech recruits more than a hundred students internationally each year. Holders of a bachelor degree, or for some after completing a first year of their master degree, students enter ParisTech schools engineering cycle in the second year. Most of them benefit from a double degree program with their home university.

Ranked among the best students of their university, these students go through a drastic selection in the fall (written scientific test, interview) before becoming the successful candidates of the ParisTech international competitive examination. They then have six months to learn French before joining the ParisTech school in the following school year.

100% online campaign, to attract the best profiles from emerging countries

ParisTech schools traditionally go to partner establishments in the spring of each year to introduce themselves to interested students, and meet their partner universities. Whether in Latin America (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia), in China or in Russia, ParisTech schools always meet with a favorable reception. Their trips allow them to introduce the high-valued French engineer degree’s specificities to students attracted by high-quality international mobility.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, ParisTech schools have prepared an online promotion campaign in order to promote the ParisTech international competitive examination, to which students can apply from June 1, 2020 to the end of September 2020. They will also be able to discover first-hand the schools of ParisTech and ParisTech international competitive examination on May 20, 2020 during a webinar organized simultaneously in all partner countries.

This webinar in English will mark the launch of the online campaign, which will continue on Twitter and LinkedIn, or even on YouTube, with school directors’ interviews, school introductions, and student testimonials.
