Back to face-to-face classes
Engineering students are expected on-site, as all the courses will be held on-site. The health protocol continues to be applied. All courses may switch to remote learning, depending on the evolution of the epidemiological situation.
The « health pass/pass sanitaire » won’t be required to access the courses. However you must present a health pass to access any leisure and cultural, scientifics. activities, events and venues, even the one hold by the students associations.
The health protocol transmitted by email and available on the intranet continues to be applied in a reinforced manner.
The procedures to follow to come to France may vary depending on your situation.
International students with a proof of full approved vaccination can enter France without isolation/quarantine measures. Vaccinated student must provide when boarding and on arrival :
- Approved vaccines for entering France are those recognized by the European Medicines Agency (Comirnaty/Pfizer, Moderna, Vaxveria/AstraZeneca, and Janssen) and foreign vaccines similar to those authorized in Europe (Covishield etc.)
- A statement certifying that you do not have any symptoms of Covid-19 and that you have not been in close contact with anyone with Covid-19 within the 14 days prior to departure.
If you are vaccinated with a vaccine that is not approved in France, then you must follow the procedures that apply to non vaccinated students, depending on your country of origin. Unvaccinated students and researchers must:
- Provide a compelling reason to come to France
- Provide a negative PCR or antigen test dated from less than 72 hours before departure
- For those coming from a « orange » country : self-isolate for 7 days and get vaccinated as soon as possible after your arrival, in conjunction with Social Security
- For those coming from a « red » country : self-isolate for 10 days and get vaccinated as soon as possible after your arrival, in conjunction with Social Security
France recommend that you get fully vaccinated in your home country to make things easier when you come over and get settled in France. You will also have the opportunity to get vaccinated in France.

How to protect yourself
The virus does not spread on its own. People who have the virus are the ones who spread it. Therefore, the following measures can help you protect yourself (and others) from the virus:
- Wash your hands regularly with soap or alcohol-based hand sanitizer;
- Cough or sneeze in your elbow;
- Use single-use tissues and throw them into the bin;
- Do not shake hands or greet people with kisses on the cheek.
- Wear your mask.
