Work-Study Programme

« We work with a view to the rapid integration of our students into the labour market. To this end, we place special emphasis on apprenticeships and the quality of the tasks entrusted to our apprentices while ensuring a quality relationship between the apprentice and their supervisor. »

Muriel Jougleux

Vice President of Partnerships and Professionalisation at Université Gustave Eiffel

Université Gustave Eiffel is a key player in apprenticeships in France, and currently has nearly 4,000 students on work/study programmes and more than 200 courses in all of the institution's fields of study. With nearly one hundred degrees open to work/study format, from the BUT to the engineering degree, including Bachelor's and Master's degrees, the university ranks first among French universities in terms of work/study programmes.


For more than fifteen years, through its various components and institutions, it has been developing apprenticeships in many courses, promoting both a pedagogical approach based on work-study programmes and the professional integration and employability of students. The success of the scheme is based on academic requirements on the one hand and the quality of the tasks entrusted by the companies to the student apprentices on the other. 

Work-study programmes are a pedagogical scheme for the professionalisation of students. All fields of training at the university are concerned: human and social sciences, economic sciences and management, letters, arts and languages, mathematics, computer science, physics, etc.

The quality of the work-study training system lies mainly in the suitability of the mission to the content and the target profession of the training, on rigorous monitoring of the apprentice in the company and at the university as well as a close partnership between the teaching team and the host company in supervising the apprentice's training.

Two types of contracts are possible :

  • The apprenticeship contract
  • The professionalisation contract

Both contracts have the same purpose, which is to obtain a certification, but there are differences in the conditions of access, financing and contractual terms.
