Professional integration

The professionalization of teaching involves various practices that vary according to the level of study but also the "professional" nature of the training. Indeed, the so-called "professional" courses (professional bachelor's degree or professional master's degree) have a higher degree of professionalization than more generalist courses. But the desire to position professionalization in all courses is a reality.

Specific teaching units (UE) to help with professional integration have been introduced from the first year of the licence. Similarly, specific courses introduce students to very concrete aspects such as the functioning of a company, job search methods, etc.

Professionalization also involves learning English with language courses and the development of science courses in English. This skill is fundamental today to find a job. The UFR Sciences intends to strengthen this axis in the years to come.

Employment rate after a professional degree in science: 89% of graduates have a job*.

Employment rate after a Master's degree in science: 90% of graduates have a job*.

63% of graduates have a job in the private sector

75.6% have a job at executive level

The internships integrated into the curriculum also allow for a good professional confrontation during the training. They are often compulsory in "professional" courses but are also developed from the bachelor's degree and in "research" courses. The relationships that our laboratories have with companies enable our students to find internships and then jobs. The link between fundamental and applied research is natural and allows students to be at the best level to be integrated in companies.

All internships are subject to a mandatory agreement between the host organization, your educational institution and yourself.

A variety of jobs

The UFR Sciences aims to offer training courses with good employment prospects. This approach is largely encouraged by the fact that the scientific sector offers access to a wide variety of jobs in various fields.
