    The European Master Course Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion
    (MESC) is designed to provide a two-year (120 ECTS) education program
    in Materials Sciences and Electrochemistry within 7 universities in 5
    countries : France (Marseille, Toulouse, Amiens), Poland
    (Warsaw), Spain (Cordoba), USA (Philadelphia) and China (Xiamen).

    MESC has been granted by the European Commission as an Erasmus
    Mundus Master course. Erasmus Mundus supports European
    top-quality Masters courses and enhances the visibility and
    attractiveness of European higher education in third countries.

    For students who join MESC it is also an opportunity to study
    in a multicultural environment since our students come from all over
    the world. That´s why classes are taught in English by professors and
    researchers who interact through the European network of excellence
    Alistore. We also provide upgrading in Eenglish to help everybody follow
    classes. So, don´t hesitate, give energy to your studies and join MESC !

    France requirements for international students

    France propose a world-class higher education institutions in an international environment. The application process for international students is exactly the same as it is for french students but it's indispensable to contact with a platform “Etude in France” and the regional department of “Campus France” (a public institution in charge of promoting higher education and managing the reception and international mobility of students).

    Higher education is thus provided by two main types of institution: universities and "grandes écoles". «Grandes écoles» are the most reputable of the French education system. To win admission students get in by competitive examination, the institutions are relatively small, and classes in them small too. French universities are open to all “bacheliers”, or a student whom has passed their baccalaureate, and it's also easier to apply for the university program. 

    It is necessary to point out that the European local or an international student have to complete the application process in its entirety,  as well as submit all documentation at the time of submission so the procces suit to the ground for the students all over the world. Students are eligible for grants and other financial assistance from the governement to support study in France.
