International stays
and internships

In order to prepare its students for a successful future, from the very beginning Atouts+ offers numerous immersions in the socio-economic environment and in foreign educational institutions.

Real world experience

Higher education is often criticised for not preparing students sufficiently for the reality of professional life. To meet this challenge, twice a year for one week, Atouts+ offers its students an immersion in a socio-economic environment.

For example:

  • in a small or medium-sized industrial company
  • with a craftsperson
  • in a non-governmental organisation or association
  • in public service

These experiences are designed to be more than a simple internship, with students acquiring key skills for social and professional success (teamwork, ability to mobilise talents for a common goal, operations and project management) underpinned by their academic skills.

Once a month during the Atouts+ program, under the guidance of a tutor, several hours are devoted to reflecting on the skills and work methods acquired.

In addition, regular lecture events are organized with actors from the public sphere, including business, economics and NGOs, and with young graduates who are starting their professional life in different sectors of society and the public sphere.

International opportunities

Higher education should prepare students for international projects and prospects

During the Atouts+ program, students spend one to two weeks per year in a European university and are thus prepared for further studies in a foreign institution and to pursue an international career.
