The French Ministry of Higher Education and Research (MESR) has just published in the Bulletin Officiel the list of public and private higher education establishments authorized to award a bachelor's degree for the period 2024-2027. 

Created by the French government in 2020, this degree, known as the "Bachelor in Science and Engineering" in engineering schools, has been a runaway success. Indeed, after 4 years, there are 61 new courses on offer in 32 engineering schools.  As a result, this Bachelor's degree has become a must in the higher education environment.

The course is distinguished by its duration, mainly 3 years, and its aim is to meet the needs of young people to get straight to the point, and the expectations of companies to be able to recruit young middle managers who already have some professional experience.

How many Bachelor's degrees are awarded at UniLaSalle?

Recognizing its potential and its ability to meet new needs, UniLaSalle decided to expand its range of bachelor's degrees in the areas of expertise covered by its engineering diplomas. Today, 5 bachelor-grade-Licence courses are offered:

Amiens campus

  • The Bachelor in Digital Engineering, which prepares multi-skilled specialists for the digital transformation, lean manufacturing, connected maintenance and cybersecurity sectors.

Rennes Campus

Beauvais Campus

Students benefit from scientific, technical and commercial courses taught by permanent engineering faculty, ensuring a high level of specialization, knowledge and standards.

What sets UniLaSalle's Bachelors apart?

1.    Recognition

Officially, the name "Bachelor" is not protected, which means that any training organization can offer a Bachelor's degree without being recognized by the French government.

UniLaSalle's Bachelor's degrees are recognized by the Commission des Titres d'Ingénieur (CTI), as they are backed by an engineering school, and have the grade of Licence, thus justifying quality training and recognition by the Ministère de l'Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche (MESR), making it easier for those who wish to enter the job market or continue their studies at Master's level.

All UniLaSalle Bachelor's-Bachelor's degrees are also recognized by the Registre National des Certifications Professionnelles (RNCP), as they are entirely or partially delivered on a work-study basis.

2.    The Bachelors format

To be accredited by the French government as a Bachelor's degree, UniLaSalle must offer Bachelors programs that meet a number of mandatory requirements (see Appendix 2 of the criteria and procedures), in addition to specific CTI criteria. Among these quality criteria, a program must offer:

  • Between 1800 and 2000 hours of teaching over the 3 years of the program;
  • At least 40% of scientific and technical hours taught by permanent staff from the school;
  • At least 25% of hours taught by the school's teacher-researchers, PhDs who have published at least one international scientific paper in the last two years;  
  • At least 25% of hours taught by socio-economic contributors;
  • International academic mobility or an internship in a foreign company of at least 4 weeks;
  • Internships or work-study programs in companies;
  • A student-teacher ratio of at least 1 permanent teacher for every 20 students;
  • Semi-annual assessment and continuous improvement of teaching;
  • An employment rate of over 90% at 18 months and 30 months for program graduates.


3.    Professional immersion

UniLaSalle's close links with the business world have enabled us to identify a strong need among our partners for a pool of students who are ready to enter the professional world, while at the same time possessing the skills and knowledge to be self-sufficient. This can be achieved through internships or apprenticeships.

UniLaSalle has therefore opted for different formats, depending on the field and the company's expectations:

  • The Bachelor AgriTEC, taught entirely as an apprenticeship from the 1st year starting in September 2024;
  • The Bachelor AgriBusiness durable, taught entirely as an apprenticeship from year 1, starting in September 2024;
  • The Bachelor Environment and Sustainable Development, comprising a 1st year under student status with a 6 to 8-week internship, followed by the last two years under apprentice status;
  • The Bachelor Geosciences and Environment with the first 18 months of initial training under student status, including a 6 to 8-week internship, supplemented by training under apprentice status for the last 18 months;
  • The Bachelor's degree in Digital Engineering, offered under student status for the first two years, with a 6-month internship, then under apprentice status for the 3rd year.

In addition to providing students with professional experience, apprenticeships also enable students to attend school free of charge, since tuition fees are paid by their host company.

Every student interested in an apprenticeship receives personalized support from UniLaSalle's Career Center, which offers job offers, assists students in their job search, helps them create their CVs and prepares them for interviews.

Integration is also facilitated by the alumni network (over 22,000 alumni).


What to remember?

UniLaSalle's 5 Bachelors programs are all recognized by the French government as Grade Licence and are registered with the RNCP. They therefore offer an excellent opportunity for young people wishing to pursue their studies without committing themselves to lengthy courses of study, specializing in a recognized and demanding course of study, and benefiting from significant professional experience.
