An exchange scheme was set up between CUED and the Ecole Centrale Paris in 2008. The Ecole Centrale is one of the prestigious "Grandes Ecoles" in France and offers a range of courses similar to those given at CUED. We hope to be able to offer two or three places on this scheme again in the coming academic year.
Cambridge students participating in the Exchange Programme spend their third year in Paris instead of doing Part IIA or MET Part I. They are assessed at ECP (by a combination of examinations, coursework and project work) and, subject to a satisfactory performance (i.e., the equivalent to a Cambridge third-class honours or above) will be deemed to have deserved honours at Part IIA. Note that, as with students participating in the MIT exchange, students do not receive a degree classification for their third year.
