I am delighted that you will soon be joining ENSTA Bretagne’s student cohorts. I hope, just as you do, that the 2021-2022 academic year will be as normal as possible. That said, we cannot ignore the risk of another wave of the pandemic due to variants. So, please, let us all act responsibly and get vaccinated before the start of the academic year.
Bruno gruselle, Director

3/ Residence permit
- You must prepare the documents required for your residence permit. You can find a list of required documents on the Centre de Mobilité Internationale website by clicking on Residence permit.
Before the academic year gets underway, you will receive an email explaining the various COVID-19-related health rules and measures.
5/ IT equipment
We ask each student to please have their own laptop.
For guidance, please refer to the minimum requirements set out below for studying for your degree. More advanced configurations will enable you to gain in terms of comfort, speed and performance. The recommended operating system is Windows 10. If you have an Apple Mac, you will be required to work on a virtualized system.
Performance requirements will increase as you progress through your degree. The first year of the engineering program is not quite as demanding as the following years.
If you already have a laptop that you consider powerful enough for running scientific and computing software, you might not need to buy a new one. We recommend that you test it and if you find that it is not very user-friendly, you could always consider getting a new one.
6/ Student health insurance
7/ Third-party liability insurance
- Third-party liability insurance is mandatory during both studies and internships. This insurance is included in the multi-risk housing insurance for students living in student residence. It covers any damage that you might cause to another person or to property. It does not cover damage to your person or property; therefore it is recommended that you take out an individual insurance policy to cover accidents or injury.
- To obtain third-party liability insurance, contact your parents’ insurer or any bank or insurance agency.
- The cost of a policy varies from €10 to €40 for the school year.
8/ Tuition fees
To validate your enrollment at ENSTA Bretagne, your administrative application must be complete and your tuition fees paid at the time of enrollment, at the latest by August 18, 2021.
New students who have not paid their fees will not receive a student card.
Your registration fee information can be found in your personal online space (Aurion).
You can pay:
- Via our secure online payment system
