"Bienvenue en France" label

Providing an experience of the highest quality for our international students

label BEF - Bienvenue En France

What is the "Bienvenue en France" (welcome to France) label?

The "Bienvenue en France" label was established through a the desire to make France more attractive to international students and to guarantee them the best conditions for their higher education. Campus France set the initiative in motion in February 2019. It enables accredited institutions to highlight the efforts they make in terms of welcoming, and supporting international students, and helping them to fit in to their new university.

This label is based in particular on quality and accessibility indicators:

  • information
  • recruitment and reception procedures
  • the training offer and teaching support
  • campus life and housing
  • post-graduate follow-up


The label "Bienvenue en France" at IMT Atlantique

After responding to all of the indicators evaluated, IMT Atlantique was awarded 3 stars, which is the highest level. The label was awarded for 4 years (2020-2024) by Campus France and validated by an independent commission.

With nearly 40% international students and more than 70 nationalities represented, IMT Atlantique has always prioritised the internationalisation of its campuses.

A few examples of actions implemented by IMT Atlantique

  • A French Summer School: every summer for 4 weeks, come and take part in our French Summer School. It combines intensive French courses, cultural and sporting activities and takes place on the Nantes campus. It brings together students from all backgrounds and from all walks of life. A great way to start the new university year with confidence!
  • An integration week: At the beginning of the university year, several days are devoted to administrative procedures (bank, social security, etc.), and we will help you to do this.

  • French language classes (FLE): Whatever your level of French and whichever course you are following, a specialised teaching team will accompany you and offer you French courses adapted to your level.

  • English language courses: Most of our Masters of science courses are taught 100% in English to better meet international demand.

  • A simplified application procedure: Everything is online, and it's free!

  • FAQ for international students: An FAQ to answer all your questions, from the choice of your programme to practical questions about campus life.

  • Accommodation: All our campuses have their own housing, close to the classrooms.

  • Global village: Every year on the Brest campus, we celebrate the diversity of cultures through the Global village. International students are given pride of place, sharing speciality dishes from their home countries. Many other events are organised throughout the year by the students: integration weekends, discovery trips, themed evenings, sports events... Not to be missed!
