1 Year International University Diploma in Chemistry & Physics

This IUD is taught in English and leads to a National Licence 3 year Degree.

This International University Diploma (IUD) in Chemistry and Physics enables the student to study science totally in English for the first year while taking French language classes. In addition, scientific French will be taught by teaching staff from both Physics and Chemistry departments. In the second year, the students that have successfully passed their year enter into a second year French National Licence program leading to a National Licence 3 year Degree. An additional support in French is also offered in the second year.

There are several advantages to this program:

  4. The student learns scientific terms in French and in English which is important for future employment.
