ISC Paris has developed work/study programs for third-year Bachelor program students and Master 1 and 2 students in the Grande École program. Students can pursue these programs under employment or apprenticeship contracts; they combine a top-quality educational program with financial independence.

Work/study is an excellent option that allows our students to enter the working world, where they quickly learn and apply their knowledge to a corporate situation, while dividing their time between school and work.

Work/Study Support Team

ISC Paris has a dedicated work/study support team to help you target and find companies and roles that fit your career plans.

15% of students interested in work/study have already found a company and a role that are suitable for a work/study contract before they apply to the Bachelor program. Most students need help to “sell” themselves, to learn how to look for a corporate employer, and to successfully interview for the job.

We have designed a support system to help you firm up your work/study plans in a supportive atmosphere offering online services, a seminar, and coaching sessions, as well as access to a corporate forum that brings together all of our partners who are looking for work/study students.
