Each year at INSEEC School of Communication consists of 60 ECTS which are earned through courses, workshops, internships and competitions.
Each program consists of 4 modules with a specified number of ECTS: General Studies, Specialization, Competitions, and Professional Life. ECTS credits are attributed based on the quantity of work required for a given module in relation to the work required to complete a school year.
Students coming to INSEEC School of Communication select the specialization they wish to enroll in during their stay. This specialization will consist of modules totaling 30 ECTS for a semester or 60 ECTS for a year. At INSEEC School of Communication, Francophone exchanges are the only yearlong exchanges offered. Anglophone exchanges are only offered the winter semester of each school year.
Any student of INSEEC School of Communication who completes a semester abroad must validate 30 ECTS. These credits will be added to the credits earned at INSEEC School of Communication which will allow them to validate their year, assuming 60 ECTS in total have been validated. In all cases where the outcome of the exchange studies is unclear, an academic committee convene to decide on the best course of action.
The students of INSEEC School of Communication are required to do internships as part of their studies. These internships may take place in France or abroad.
In order for an internship to be counted for ECTS credit, there must be a contract in place. INSEEC School of Communicatio provides a contract for all of our students, but a contract written by the company is also accepted. At the end of the internship period, the internship office sends a questionnaire to the company to ensure that the student satisfactorily completed their work placement.
