Induction process

  • News



    Aca­d­e­m­ic inductionAn aca­d­e­m­ic induc­tion process will be organ­ised at each part­ner insti­tu­tion. Stu­dents will be sent an “induc­tion pack­age” once they have been select­ed: the enrol­ment let­ters, the stu­dent agree­ment and the e‑booklet with all nec­es­sary infor­ma­tion and practical/academic advice. 
    Wel­come eventA wel­come event involv­ing all the stu­dents in the local cohort and the staff will be organ­ised at each part­ner in Sep­tem­ber. It will include intro­duc­tion to aca­d­e­m­ic tutors and bud­dies, local pro­ce­dures, prac­ti­cal info about the university/courses/exams/deadlines, and a cam­pus ori­en­ta­tion vis­it. Social event (e.g. din­ner) will be organ­ised in each insti­tu­tion. Depend­ing on the path­way, aca­d­e­m­ic induc­tion activ­i­ties may include prepara­to­ry class­es and course introductions.

    One of the key means to pro­mote a sys­temic approach to eco­nom­ic pol­i­cy is to encour­age exchanges between stu­dents from dif­fer­ent Majors and to pro­mote net­work­ing. Since, in the first year, stu­dents will study at dif­fer­ent insti­tu­tions there will be an “induc­tion month” organ­ised in Sep­tem­ber of the sec­ond year.

    It includes joint activities:
    Inten­sive French trainingEvery morn­ing.
    Cul­tur­al activitiesOne after­noon per week, includ­ing vis­its to famous and less well-known dis­tricts of Paris, vis­its to cul­tur­al insti­tu­tions (e.g. La Gaité Lyrique, Cen­tre Pom­pi­dou, Muse­um of Archi­tec­ture…), dis­cov­ery of French gas­tron­o­my and some evening cul­tur­al event;
    Net­work­ing and dis­cus­sion about career oppor­tu­ni­ties.In addi­tion to net­work­ing among stu­dents in the same cohort, grad­u­ates from pre­vi­ous EPOG cohorts will be invit­ed to talk to stu­dents. They should be able to answer ques­tions about pro­fes­sion­al oppor­tu­ni­ties. Stu­dents will be intro­duced to the “EPOG Stu­dents and Alum­ni Asso­ci­a­tion (EPOG SAA)” and “Eras­mus Mundus stu­dents and Alum­ni asso­ci­a­tion (EMA)”. They will be intro­duced also to the Doc­tor­al schools and doc­tor­al stud­ies programme.
    Joint group work/lecturesA set of cours­es ded­i­cat­ed to the whole cohort will offer a first oppor­tu­ni­ty to stu­dents from dif­fer­ent Majors and geo­graph­ic ori­gins to work togeth­er on com­mon issues and to meet aca­d­e­m­ic and/or non-aca­d­e­m­ic actors in var­i­ous fields.

    Academic tutors and buddy programme

    Aca­d­e­m­ic tutors and bud­dies (Mas­ter’s or PhD stu­dent) are assigned for each student.

    Aca­d­e­m­ic tutorsAca­d­e­m­ic tutors (one from each of the path­way insti­tu­tions) will help the stu­dents to make choic­es relat­ed to the course and pos­si­ble careers. 
    Bud­diesThe bud­dies pro­vide insights into, and under­stand­ing of the life, cul­ture and learn­ing envi­ron­ment in the host coun­try. Bud­dies are a source of sup­port and infor­ma­tion on all aspects, from aca­d­e­m­ic to per­son­al. They intro­duce incom­ing stu­dents to the social and aca­d­e­m­ic life.
