When will class start?

It depends on the programme you will follow at Cantrale Nantes, but mosly classes start in September. Consult your school programme schedule for exact dates.

Should I follow language classes? Which ones?

It depends on your academic programme, mostly international students take obligatory French classes but there are other options.

What is the DRI?

It is the "Direction des Relations Internationales" of Centrale Nantes, the team on hand to help you. This is your number one stop should you have any administrative issues that need to be resolved, these are your people.

What is the "Scolarité"?

This is the Student Affairs department. When you arrive at Centrale Nantes you will have to go scolarité to complete the enrolment process.

How can I obtain my id and password for the Centrale Nantes intranet?

Unfortunately it is not possible to obtain these before your arrival in Centrale Nantes. They are issued after enrolment.

Where can I print?

There are 3 main places where you can print: the "Mèdiathèque" in building L, the computer rooms in building B (second floor, when they are not occupied) and COREP, a printing shop located right next to the school (in front of the stop of the train). In the first two, printing is free but you must bring your own paper. On the other hand, in COREP it is not necessary to bring your own paper, but you will have to buy a ticket to print. A black and white page costs around € 0.20.
