Non-EU citizen living outside of the EU

Our Master’s in Computer Science, Cybersecurity track is not listed on “Etude en France”. Therefore, you cannot apply directly at master’s level.

As a non-EU citizen living outside of the EU, two options are available for you:

Option 1:
We recommend that non-EU citizens who do not already hold an EU visa / resident permit complete a 3rd year of bachelor’s degree in Computer Sciences, Mathematics and Computer Sciences or Electronics & Electrical Engineering in France before applying for the cybersecurity track.

The BA3 in computer science from the University of Rennes 1 is accessible via Etude en France. It then allows international students to apply for our Master’s Computer Science, Cybersecurity track. You are of course not required to complete your BA3 in computer science at the University of Rennes 1 specifically. You can complete it at any French university.

You can find out more information about registering in a BA3 at the University of Rennes 1 as a foreign student here.

Option 2:
Our Master’s in Computer Science, Cybersecurity track partners with  EIT Digital Master School to offer an international variant called “Cyber Security (CSE)”. This variant has its own international application process that you could consider to pursue your studies in cybersecurity. You can access the application requirements and deadlines here.
