Structure of studies and ENS Paris-Saclay diploma

The ENS Paris-Saclay program lasts four years.
At the end of these four years, students must validate the ENS Paris-Saclay diploma. This diploma includes:

  • A reinforced disciplinary training over three years: one year of L3 in physics, a research-oriented master's degree in physics (M1+M2)
  • An additional year of training that will define the path of the degree:
    • Higher education with a FESup-Physics master
    • Research: 1 year of pre-doctoral research abroad "ARPE"
    • "Interface": 1 year or more of training at least at the L3 level in another discipline.
