Admission requirements

First year (M1)

If you have completed a Bachelor’s degree in Science or are enrolled in the final semester of a Bachelor’s program in Science, you are eligible to apply for the Master’s program N2. Your initial background should be in one or more of the following fields: physics, chemistry, nanosciences and nanotechnologies, engineering, mathematics. 

Second year (M2)

To be eligible you should have completed, or be enrolled in, a first year of a Master program in Science, and totalize 60 ETCS. You must choose one of the tracks: nanophysics, nanochemistry, soft-nanosciences, quantum information-quantum engineering, nanobiotechnology, nanomedecine, or micro nano-engineering

If you have followed or are following a Bachelor program in Science of at least four years, there are two possibilities. If your background covers all the prerequisites of one of the 2nd year tracks, you can be admitted directly to  the 2nd year. You can also choose to follow the 1st year to reinforce your scientific knowledge and favor your integration in the French Academic system and, during this first year,  start and develop a significant research activity through the Research Intensive Track (RIT)  system. This option will also be proposed to the M2 applicants if the head of the M2 track considers that you do not meet all the requirements for the envisioned track. To fasten the selection process, it is recommended that you apply both to the M2 track and the corresponding M1 program from the beginning.

Language requirements

To gain admission to an MSc in the English language at Université Grenoble Alpes, applicants must document qualifications in the English language equivalent to the European standard ‘English level B2'.

If you are not French you have different ways to document this:
  • if you have performed your prior higher education program in a European university and have obtained a certificate of English level B2, you must provide an attestation of your previous university for this certificate.
  • if you have performed your previous higher education studies in the English language, we ask you to provide a signed statement from your University or Education Institution (with the institution's stamp on it) stating that English is the main language of instruction.
  • in other cases you must pass an IELTS, TOEFL, Cambridge Advanced English or Cambridge English Proficiency (CPE) test before being admitted. Applications will be processed when the UGA has received your test results.
