International internships for Master students
Master Physics and Application at UPMC
This master offers a range of courses in physics within all its diversity and it encourages internship for:
- Implementation in a research laboratory (to prepare a thesis)
- Experience within the industry (career path)
- Practice in teaching and education
The acquired knowledge within this master offers a wide opening to others disciplines where training in physics is appreciated: engineering, environmental and earth sciences, the astrophysical and life sciences etc.
Our Master offers the opportunity to apply in a variety of specialties on the Master 2 level.
The lectures in the M1 level are all given in French.
Grants for international internships
We support the exchange of students at the international level. A number of yearly grants are allocated to students at the M1 master level, registered at the University Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC). The internships are from mid-April to mid-July, and should last for 3 months. The project is carried out in a foreign laboratory with a close collaboration with the PLAS@PAR laboratory.
Grants are also available to help students come to the Paris area to do an internship (M1 or M2) within one of PLAS@PAR's labs. This grant can cover travelling expenses as well as a part of the living expenses. Request needs to be made on behalf of a selected candidate by the scientist in charge of the internship.
