The ability to work in a multi-cultural environment is an important asset for a successful academic or industrial career. ACSYON students are encouraged to spend at least one semester abroad to develop their language and social skills ; it is also an opportunity to broaden their scienfitic and cultural scope. Reciprocally, ACSYON welcomes students from foreign universities ; classes are given in English to facilitate student exchanges and to provide a training adapted to the reality of scientific and industrial practices. ACSYON has developed a number of partnerships with foreign universities that offer relevant courses. Students who spend a semester with one of these partners can complete the ACSYON curriculum with no fear of being penalized. Details of the exchange program for each partner are given below.
