DUT Réseaux & Télécoms - Computer Networking & Telecoms

> French version here

The "DUT Réseaux et Télécommunications" (Computer Networking & Telecoms) is a French national undergraduate diploma for candidates owing a good "Baccalauréat" (equivalent to "A" Levels in Maths and Science). They attend a two-year course, with 35 hours per week divided up into lectures (20% of the total time), tutorials (30%) and practicals (50%), which ends in a 3 to 5-month industrial placement. The bias is on practical work.

The three main areas of study are Computer Science, Computer Networking and Telecoms.

Placement period


The minimum period is from mid-April to June but traditionally lasts from mid-April to the end of August.

There is no legal obligation on your part to pay the student, even though it would be greatly appreciated (in France, students are paid around 500 euros/ month). Alternatively, you could also decide to pay him/her on merit, at the end of the placement, or provide some help towards accommodation and food.

Our students are allowed to apply for grants through our university which could help cover, partly, their living costs. In order to apply for those grants, they will need a copy of the Training Agreement, which is why we usually insist on your sending us this agreement as early as possible.




Once you have agreed to take a student on a placement, perhaps following a telephone interview, you will be sent a Training Agreement by the university. This agreement will contain the following information:

  • the student's name and details as well as the company's name and address
  • the name of our university
  • the name of the degree
  • the name of a supervisor in the company and at the university with a provisional topic
  • the dates of the placement/internship
  • the obligation for the student to have his own insurance
  • the obligation for the student to write a final report
