Applicants for professionalization contracts must be no older than 25 and for apprenticeship contracts younger than 30 at the time of signing. International students from outside the EU cannot sign a contract if they do not have a "student" residence permit and have been resident in France for less than a year.
Students sign a contract with a company for a period of one year if they are studying for an undergraduate degree or for the second year of a Master’s program (M2), and for two years if applying for both years of a Master’s program (M1 + M2).
Work-study students divide their time between working at the company and taking classes on the Porte Dauphine and Saint Georges (IPJ) campuses.
The schedule for company / university work-study programs varies per program and is updated annually in order to meet the requirements of the profession in question.
