Capital of Limousin, Limoges counts about 230,000 inhabitants and offers, with 600 hectares of parks and green areas and the nearby countryside, a high quality of life not easily found in other big cities. Limoges offers a wide choice of cultural and sporting activities with 5 swimming pools, 2 golf courses, 40 large sport fields, a bowling center, a municipal stadium, 20 exhibition halls, 18 cinema screens, a municipal theatre, a multimedia library... Each day and evening gives the opportunity to get out: movies, shows and concerts, night clubs, restaurants, music cafés... Sport facilities and a privileged environment allow you to practise more than 70 different sports. Limoges is a great place to live and the cost of living for students is the lowest in France. A friendly university town With a community of more than 200,000 students, as well as 780 scientists and university teachers, Limoges is a true university town. The city is recognised for having one of the best multidisciplinary universities in the country with a large choice of degrees and diplomas such as law and economics, medicine, pharmacy, natural sciences, sport, art and social sciences. There’s also a institute of technology with 11 departments and 3 engineering schools. The university is an essential participant for the development of Limousin. An international city Thanks to its many assets and its position of European capital of ceramics, Limoges is a center of attraction for people from all over the world. Its technopole, its companies, its university, its “Grandes Ecoles” (Grand Schools), its research center... All give the city an international reputation. As part of a national network of technology and research center and recognised for international events such as the International French Language Theatre Festival, twinned with Europeen, American and Asian cities (as: Pilsen, Charlotte, Fürth, Seto...), Limoges maintains privileged relations on every continent. Industrial ceramics with its pole of excellence, an innovative education, and development of specialized knowledge and techniques are, today, the driving force of Limoges. Study at ENSCI Top students in French high schools follow a scientific cursus. The reason is that engineering is considered as a highly respected profession with manageable responsability. Engineering are trained in the “Ecole d’Ingénieurs” (Engineer School), which there are more than 300 all over the country. Ceramics have been made and used since antiquity but nowadays they become an important part of highly technical industrial sectors such as electronics, computing, nuclear energy, medicine, aerospace technology and many others. ENSCI is a engineering college under the authority of the French Ministry of National Education, associated with the University of Limoges and a member of the French “Conférence des Grandes Ecoles” (Grand School Conference). Its mission is to train engineers (master’s degree) in research, development and production of mineral materials: ceramics, glass, refractories cement and concretes, raw materials, etc... This is focused on high-quality research, a close partnership with the economic and industrial world and an important international network of laboratories and universities for exchanges. ENSCI is the only engineering college in France devoted to industrial ceramics. Three years are necessary to get the engineer diploma, recognized by the national authorities. The program is both scientific (materials science, structure, microstructure and properties) and technical (ceramic processing: extraction of raw materials, forming, thermal treatment). Student engineers must undertake different traineeships in companies (9 months during the program) and a 3 month research project in a at the end of the third year. If you are interested in research, you may enter a PhD Cursus (third cycle). You begin with a preparatory degree, the Master Research which can be obtained during the last year spent at ENSCI. Then three years of research are necessary to write and defend the PhD. Parlez-vous français ? The classes are usually given in French and you must be able to follow them. When staying in Limoges, you may improved your french by attending French classes in the Department of Foreign Languages at the University of Limoges. How much will it cost ? Tuition fees: within the framework of FIRE or Socrates exchanges or bilateral agreements, students pay their fees in the university of origin. Otherwise, students pay fees to ENSCI: 450 €/year + Social Security 180 €. Housing: a room on campus 115 €/month, a flat on the campus from 240 € to 380 €/month, a flat in the city around 290 €/month. There is a possibility of sharing a flat. Eating: student cafeteria: 2,65 €/meal, in the city 8 €/meal, restaurant 14 €/meal. Where will I be living ? FIRE or Socrates-Erasmus students are automatically provided a room in a residence hall on the campus. For others, this is not automatic and it is easier to obtain a room during the second term of the academic year (March - June). If you are interested, apply to the studies office at ENSCI. You may want to live in the city center in an apartment although this is more expensive. There is a student cafeteria and many other facilities on the University campus.
