Foundation in Engineering for French Universities (Pre-France Engineering)

Kursus Persediaan dalam Kejuruteraan bagi Universiti Perancis (Pre-France Engineering)

The Pre-France programme is a 13 months long preparatory programme aimed for students with academic excellence to pursue their studies in France via our collaboration partners, the Institut Universitaire de Technologie (IUT) for the first 2 years before they can apply to enrol into Ecole d’Ingénieur (School of Engineering) for Master’s in Engineering or French Universities for Master’s in Science.

Universiti Kuala Lumpur Malaysia France Institute has been aptly chosen to be the centre for this preparatory programme as it stresses on the concept of teaching and learning in the French way.

Through the France Collaboration Programme (FCP) Section, the Pre-France programme was developed through the actual experience of those who have gone through years of experience of living and studying in France, thus making this programme a success.

Application to this programme can be made under the Young Talent Development Programme (YTP) for MARA and PROGRAM KHAS JEPUN, KOREA, PERANCIS, JERMAN (JKPJ) for JPA.

Students who successfully complete the foundation programme and meet sponsor’s requirements will make their way to France and enrol automatically in the first year of the DUT of choice. Our partner universities are:
