The document must be provided at the end of the selection process, only if you have been selected. It is not necessary beforehand.
Students on the main list will have 14 days to give a definite answer. If they do not reply within the 14 days, they will lose the benefit of the offer and will be ruled out of both lists. In case of defections on the main list, students on the reserve list are contacted in order of ranking. They will be given 7 days to reply. If they do not reply within the 7 days, they will lose the benefit of the offer and the next person on the list will be contacted following the same procedure.
A bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering may be accepted if students do have the required background. CYBERUS being a predominantly technical programme, our evaluation grid mainly targets applicants with strong skills in computer science or computer engineering: programming languages, software development, mathematics, networks, operating systems, microprocessor design. As selection and admission is highly competitive, preference is given to students with such a background.
No. We need an official document with your name and address on it. It can be any administrative document (electricity bill, rent receipt, etc.).
If you live with your parents or a family member, you will need provide an official document with their names on it and a declaration of honour from them testifying that you are actually living with them.
This is important as it may impose restrictions on the choice of the country for the 5-month final internship.
If you are not an EU national, you will need a visa to enter the countries of study (France, Estonia, Belgium and Luxemboug). If you are concerned, once you have received your admission letter, we strongly advise you to apply at the earliest for Long-Stay Visa (Visa VLS-TS) at the French Consulate of your country of residence.
Your visa application must be carried out on France-Visas the official visa website for France. You will find the different steps you need to follow to complete your application here.
For a Long-Stay Visa it is recommended to submit your application between 2 to 3 months before arrival in France
No, for a residency permit you need a long stay student visa. The Schengen visa is valid only up to 3 months.
It depends on your nationality and country of residence. In some cases, it may take two to three months. Thus, apply for your visa as soon as you have been accepted.
Unfortunately, UBS, UL and ULB do not have halls of residence on campus. But the Programme Office will support you in your search for accommodation. We will organise online meetings prior to your arrival if you are selected.
For more information, please consult our Student guides available here.
Lorient, France, is not Paris. It is much cheaper. The estimated monthly cost of living in Lorient is between 700€ and 800€. This includes accommodation, food, transport, health, etc. For further information, consult our student guides.
All students have a right to work while studying in France. Non-EU students must have a student resident permit though.
French law allows foreign students to work up to 964 hours per year, or the equivalent of 60% of the maximum working hours permitted. (50% for Algerian students whose status remains defined by the Franco-Algerian Agreement of December 27, 1968).
However, it is also very important to be able to balance studies and work since the CYBERUS programme is full time and highly demanding.
No. The CYBERUS programme is only offered full-time and face-to-face.
