Information on the admission of non-EU students to Grenoble’s higher education institutions

The Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA), Grenoble Institute of Technology (INP), Sciences Po Grenoble and the Ecole nationale supérieure d’architecture de Grenoble (ENSAG) reaffirm their commitment to international students, and to the values of openness and exchange.

We are well aware of the concerns raised by the French government’s recent announcement that France will significantly increase its tuition costs for non-EU students, and we support the French Council of University Presidents (CPU)’s request to suspend the measure in favor of a large-scale dialogue.

Grenoble’s higher education institutions will continue to welcome international students at all levels of study – undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral – at the same rates as French and EU students; any student who expresses the need for these lower tuition rates will be exempt from the new, higher fees.

The registration conditions for non-EU students at the Sciences Po Grenoble and the ENSAG also remain unchanged.


To be admitted to the program, candidates must have previously completed a first year study at the master level and been awarded at least 60 ECTS in degree in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, or equivalent.

Students may apply directly to M2 level.

Admission in MSIAM

Anyone holding a first year of master (60 ECTS credits) in mathematics or applied mathematics or an equivalent degree, interested in pursuing a high level mathematical education and motivated by the applications of mathematics. The minimum requirement is to have earned at least the equivalent of 240 ECTS credits.

Important notes

  • Students from related backgrounds (physics, computer science, engineering, …) may also apply provided they possess outstanding mathematical qualifications and are highly motivated by applications.
  • Eligibility : only individuals who have an excellent academic record will be considered. Applications from students from traditionally underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged.
  • Academic standing : Fellows must maintain full-time status in the Master’s program, and must be engaged in full-time coursework or research during the academic year (september 1st–July 31st).

Language requirements

  • Students from countries where English language is not the primary language are required to provide evidence of Competence in English. The requirement is waived for applicants from English speaking countries as well as applicants whose previous degree is from a program taught in English. English scores required: TOEFL IBT 78 min or TOEFL CBT 210 or TOEIC 700 min or IELTS 6 min or Cambridge FCE. This is equivalent to the CEFR level B2.

  • An A2 level in French is recommended.


Some fellowships are available to master students. Be careful, as they require specific application and have various deadlines:
