Learning Agreement

The learning agreement is the educational contract between you, the partner school and your institution.

Then contact your school to draw up your Learning Agreement and have it validated.

Rules of the Learning Agreement at ENSA Normandie

  • You can choose courses in both the 1st and 2nd cycle. You are not obliged to choose complete teaching units.
  • Due to the workload, you may only take one project and one seminar per semester.
  • Some courses are common to two semesters, such as Art in S01/S03 and S02/S04. Therefore, you will not be able to register in both S01 and S03 in this course.
  • No enrolment in semester 10 (Final year project) will be granted without the prior agreement of the ENSA Normandie teachers in charge of this course and the teachers of the school of origin.
  • You can carry out an internship under agreement with ENSA Normandie but no ECTS credits will be awarded
  • Two hours of French as a foreign language (FLE) classes per week are given throughout the academic year. Their validation grants 2 ECTS per semester.

Health and liability insurance

  • European students: To benefit from free French social security, you must be in possession of the European Health Insurance Card that you apply for in your country of origin.
  • Non-European students: You must register with the French social security system by contacting the Caisse Primaire d'Assurance Maladie.

Civil liability insurance is compulsory. It must cover both academic and non-academic risks. It protects you against the financial consequences of physical and material damage that you may cause to a legal or physical person during your university activities and also during your internship.
