Frequently Asked Questions

On this page you will find the most frequently asked questions about the Graduate Programmes.

The prerequisites for joining one of the master’s courses depend on the specific course. You will find more information on the dedicated pages for each course on the University of Lille website.

Students applying for one of the master’s courses (M1 or M2) can also apply for study and welcome grants. M1 students already registered on one of the courses can  also apply for a study grant if they wish to move on to the second year.

This will depend on the individual master’s course. Students are invited to contact the head of the programme for more information. The academic year also includes lectures, practicals and one or more traineeships (3 to 6 months).

A fast track towards PhD level based on early detection and the selection of master’s students willing and able to pursue research is available in each graduate programme.

At both master’s and PhD level, the graduate programmes are designed to train the protagonists and leaders of the academic, socio-economic, industrial and biotechnological worlds of the future.
