Candidating / Scholarships






This page explains the different candidates can take to join the courses offered by the Computer Science department. A guide for new students is also available.

Note: This guide is oriented towards students joining ENS from a foreign institution and hence discusses only those possibilities that foreign students would typically use. If you have previously studied in France, we refer you to the French version of this page, which discusses some additional possibilities.

Candidating for L3

The L3 is the third year of Bachelor (licence) studies. The objective of this year is to provide students with a basis in fundamental computer science topics such as computability and complexity, logics, algorithmics, disrete mathematics, architecture and operating systems. Detailed information about the courses can be found here (in French). Most courses can be given in English on request.

Erasmus students

Foreign students can join the ENS Cachan as guests provided their home institute has a partnership agreement with ENS Cachan. A list of these institutes can be found at the ENS site. Contact the Erasmus coordinator at your home institute for procedures.

Candidating for M1 or M2

M1 and M2 are the first and second year of the Master programme. It is possible to join in either year. Prior knowledge of French is not required, in fact almost all courses are available in English.

The computer science department runs the MPRI programme (Master Parisien de Recherche en Informatique) in collaboration with several other institutions of the Paris region. The objective of the first year is to broaden the students' scope of knowledge with a choice of introductory courses to many subjects. The objective of the second year is to deepen the students' knowledge in subjects of their choice. The first semester will be filled by courses, the second semester by a research internship during which the student will develop his Master's thesis.

More information about the course programme can be found at our website (in French) for M1 and for M2, or at the MPRI website (in English).

Scholarships

Several scholarship programmes are available for students having completed their Bachelor of Computer Science. Candidates are asked to fill the forms on the pedagogical web server. More details about the scholarship programs can be found here:
