Mobility in Europe or internationally is an opportunity:

-to discover another culture and another way of working;

-to improve your linguistic and cultural skills in a work situation;

-to enrich your professional practices by discovering tools and techniques specific to the host country.


International mobility is a very rewarding professional experience. This brings a real asset to a candidate who can make the difference for a job.


During the period of mobility abroad, the principle of alternation inherent in the contract no longer applies. Students are not required to alternate courses and periods of training in a company, so that they can only carry out training in a company or only courses in a training organization during their stay abroad.
