What is studying in an 'alternance'-system?


“Alternance” is a French system and a type of dual learning: the student combines lectures at a French business school with working at a company of his/her choice. The student earns a small wage and the students education is subsidized by the French government. The student gets to choose the company himself but the company needs to be registered in France. Alternance is the perfect solution for young graduates who don’t want to work full-time yet or don’t want to study full-time anymore.

An example of an alternance-rhythm consists of working at the company for three weeks and the remaining time the student goes to school. The courses are very hands-on with a big focus on speaking and writing skills. We guarantee you’ll improve your French to a perfect level and that you’ll improve your working skills and professional expertise. Think about how good this will look on your resume!

The student gets to choose the field of study, he/she can even choose between a bachelor’s or a master’s degree which complements the job within the company. There’s a big choice in educations, being communication, business development, HR management, etc. The student doesn’t even have to pay a registration fee to go to university, everything will be paid by the company in collaboration with the French government.

An academic year typically starts in September and ends in June, but can start sooner with a training within the company if necessary. Typically, the company offers the alternance student a full-time job after his academic year but this is not obligated.

In other words: don’t hesitate to hire an alternance student or to enrol in an alternance yourself!
