IMT Atlantique Brest was an interesting phase in my academic life. Coming from an Anglophone educational system to a Francophone teaching style was quite a challenge at the beginning, but worthwhile in the end.
My programme was in both French and English(60/40). Although I spoke a bit of French, it still required more knowledge to sail through the programme. This was made possible through the school’s compulsory weekly French classes. The programme was very rigorous as we spent most of our time in class, in lab sessions or doing group projects. The professors are knowledgeable in their field and try to engage the students in each lesson, although some of them aren’t good at transferring knowledge appropriately.
The career seminars and job dating events were very beneficial in finding an internship and a job in the long run. Lastly, the intercultural environment helped me learn about different cultures, and also prepare me to work in multicultural teams in the real world.
Overall, it was a good experience as I learned to study in a new language, make new friends and stand on my own in a new country. I just wish I did more research into the French teaching style before starting the programme.View more
