    4/ Health protocol

    You will be informed of the health measures and rules related to Covid-19 implemented on campus at the beginning of the school year.
    You can stay informed of the current health instructions on the government website: https://www.gouvernement.fr/info-coronavirus

    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.

    The minimum recommended configuration is as follows:
    Laptop >= Intel Core i5, AMD Ryzen 5 or equivalent processor, 256 GB storage (SSD ideally), 8 GB memory.

    6/ Student health insurance 

    How to apply for health insurance

    7/ Third-party liability insurance

    • Third-party liability insurance is mandatory during both studies and internships. 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.
    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).

    9/ Scientific refresher class to get your year off to the best start

    We encourage all students about to begin the 2nd year of the engineering program to take a scientific refresher class before they arrive.
