Recruiting in a work-and-study programme

Recruiting in a work-and-study programme

There are two ways to recruit in a work-linked training scheme: apprenticeship and the professionalization agreement. Training in a work and study programme at university means:

  • For the company :  access to a high quality career-path,  giving you the opportunity to achieve better understanding of the students and their trainings.
  • For the students : a run-up to professional life, thanks to a dual system in a company and at university.
  • For the students and the companies : a formal framework, a real recruitment pool  of young  diploma-holders.



The educational dimension specific to apprenticeship is notably based on the double tutoring between the university tutor and the company mentor.

At Paris Descartes, 26 degrees are open to apprenticeship, from DUT to professional master that's 740 apprentices in the tertiary sectors, science and technology.
