    What is ‘Work-study’?

    Our programmes offered on a work-study track are subject to specific admissions requirements and conditions. To maximise your chances of being accepted on a work-study track, here is some useful information and helpful advice:

    • Personal interview: Candidates are strongly advised to submit a CV and a cover letter. How you perform on the day of the interview and the quality of these documents, even if optional, are all part of the assessment.
    • Grant holders: as part of its commitment to social inclusion, when it comes to work-study, Excelia gives preferential consideration to applicants with grants.

     

    During your studies, this vocationally-oriented Work-study Track offers you the possibility of alternating School-based periods, during which you will learn the theory, with company-based periods, where you will work on projects relating to your programme.

    The School provides you with the necessary assistance in your search for a work-study opportunity. This support helps each student to identify their personal qualities, to highlight their experience (professional, associative, sporting, charitable, international), as well as their academic skills. It is also an opportunity to prepare a LinkedIn profile that companies can consult.
