The EBI prepares its students for the professional world by offering internships on all the biology school’s courses, thanks to its solid network of partners. To date, more than 4,500 companies and organizations have hosted at least one EBIste on an internship or work-study program.
Our Biology engineering students complete an average of 13 months of internships, and 5 months abroad. Students who choose to follow their 5th year under a professionalization contract spend 9 months in companies. Bachelors accumulate 9 and a half months of field experience.
Opportunities to travel the world, to discover new cultures, new ways of life, and to compare our working methods with those of other countries
Minimum1 month stay during the first year of schooling, validated by a report and a presentation in English.
Opportunities to develop a good understanding of the professions in a very concrete way, to put one's knowledge into practice, to acquire the working methods of professionals, to train oneself to adapt.
During the engineering cycle, from the 4th to the 5th year, students are challenged through high value-added internships, whose strategic missions contribute to change within the host structures. The 5th year internship, the final academic stage, allows the student to develop the Major project. It often turns into a first job opportunity.
Fifth year students can choose to follow their studies under a professionalization contract. They then alternate classes and periods in companies for longer projects of up to 9 months. From September to January, the weekly rhythm is 3 days of classes and 2 days in the field. From February to August, it is a full-time job in a company.
Students benefit from the employment services of the EBI Career Center to help them find internships and work-study programs: EBIJobs platform, Millionroads solution to decipher career paths, career management modules from the 2nd year, annual EBIconnect® company forum, administrative support for the formalization of agreements, support from the Alumni network.
8 months of internship required for the Bachelor's degree, 10 months minimum for the engineering degree.
I did my internship in Research & Development at the start-up Enalees, whose goal is to create molecular tests for pets, accessible to veterinarians. During my first month, I became familiar with the laboratory, the people in the company, the management and the molecular biology technology. I soon had my own projects to carry out, in complete autonomy. This experience required a total investment on my part. Before the end of my internship, my supervisor offered me to join the company on a permanent basis. I accepted without hesitation.
