Semester 4

Semester 4 is dedicated  to a six-month training internship in laboratories of public research institutes or private companies .
A simple reminder
An internship is a form of experiential learning that enables students to gain practical experience by integrating knowledge and theory learned in the classroom into a professional context.
The Biology AgroSciences teaching staff attach a great deal of importance to this fourth semester and are fully devoted to helping students find the best internships in relation to their professional projects.

Why ?

Because an internship allows students to apply their theoretical knowledge to practical work situations and trains them to develop their competencies in a professional environment.
Internships allow students to network in the professional fields of their chosen careers, offer opportunities for personal and professional development, and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.
