The first step for students to join CentraleSupélec for a semester is to register their interest by filling in our online form and posting a cover letter and CV, as well as  academic transcripts, by October 15. The Department of International Affairs will then confirm eligibility (please note this confirmation does not necessarily entail admission).

International Affairs will then let you know whether you are eligible. Please note: this does not mean that you have been accepted to study with us.

Applicants can then formally apply on our dedicated platform, MoveOn, once they receive the link from the CentraleSupélec team in charge of Incoming Mobility. The deadline to apply is November 15.

A committee of CentraleSupélec teaching and research faculty will then review the applications and email students their decisions by December 1.


Once formally accepted, students can pack up for their semester abroad with us! The Spring semester begins early February and ends mid-June.

  • Be in their 3rd or 4th year of undergraduate studies or their 1st year of graduate studies.

CentraleSupélec's assistance


The Department of International Affairs will guide students through the application process, upon arrival on campus, and through the semester.

Students who need assistance in the application process may contact us here. Upon arrival (end of January), the Orientation Week for international students will introduce them to the community of internationals and help them settle smoothly into their new environment. For those who might miss it, and throughout the semester, our team remains on hand to help with the paperwork, course enrolment, opening bank accounts, and more generally with making the most of this semester with us!

Visa & immigration

Some nationalities demand a visa to come and stay for a semester. The Department of International Affairs will guide you through the process upon acceptance into our program. On arrival, students will have to complete a final step and obtain their resident permits. As with previous steps, our team will be glad to provide assistance.
