Russia Admission Programme

Enhance your career prospects: ParisTech encourages bright, ambitious students to apply for a Double Master’s degree in Science and Engineering ("Diplôme d'ingénieur") at the most prestigious French Grandes Ecoles, a unique opportunity for an international career, or for pursuing a PhD.

Due to the current situation, the recruitment campaign of Russian students in the frame of existing agreements is suspended for this year. Thus, ParisTech will not recruit any student in Russia in the frame of our existing agreements. Students in Russia, and in particular from ParisTech partner universities, who are willing to study engineering during 2 years in France from September 2024 to get the French « Diplôme d’ingénieur » with us are invited to consult our ParisTech website and to apply “individually” through the « Other countries » campaign.

This admission program allows you to candidate simultaneously to 7 of ParisTech schools for admission into a double degree program at master level (“Diplôme d’ingénieur”, see chart below) :

ParisTech schools signed several agreements in order to enable students to come and study in Paris to get a double degree. It means that at the end of your studies you will get at the same time the Master’s degree from your University and the engineering degree of the ParisTech School.

Only students from the following universities may apply to the double degree programme:

  • Novosibirsk State University (NSU)
  • Tomsk State University (TSU): Science and Engineering faculties

For admission into the two-year Master’s programme, you are required to have successfully completed at least 3 years of a Bachelor’s degree (Bakalavrat) in Science or Engineering at your home University by September 2021 taking into account that you will move to France in September 2023 after achieving your first year of Master’s degree at your University.

You should have good working knowledge of English or French.
