An international track in nanoscience

An international master

The master Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies is one of the 12 international masters of Université Joseph Fourier. All second year courses are taught in english, and more than 1 student out of 2 come from abroad. In 2013-2014, 20 students come from 8 different countries: Brasil, Germany, India, Iran, Mexico, Taiwan, Venezuela, Vietnam.

The master N2 of UJF is part of a European Mundus Master consortium, the EM master Nano, open to european and non-european students. Students registered at the EMM Nano spend their 1st year in the Katholische University of Leuven and their 2nd year at Université Grenoble-Alpes. They obtain  a joint degree of the KU Leuven and the Université Grenoble Alpes. Instructions to apply for the EMM Nano can be found here.

The master N2 has partnerships and/or double degree programs with  other universities, such as the Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU, Federation of Russia), the University of Tsukuba (Japan) and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (K.I.T). Within this framework, you may spend a semester or a full year abroad during your UGA master in Nanoscience and Nanotechnologies.

More than half of the students coming from abroad undertake a PhD in the Grenoble area (see prospects).


Grenoble hosts the European School in Nanosciences & Nanotechno-logies, ESONN, a 3 weeks program designed to train young researchers in nanosciences.

Next session is August 27th to September 16th 2017 -  Grenoble, France
