The School of Agriculture :
PURPAN, a Jesuit private college founded in 1919, has maintained a spirit of direct collaboration with the agricultural environment. It is administered by a non-profit making council and depends on the Ministry of Agriculture. It awards the degree of “Ingénieur en Agriculture” which is equivalent to a MSc in Agriculture. Students are admitted after the French “Baccalauréat”, or directly into 2nd or 3rd year (after a two-or-three-year university degree).
PURPAN curriculum is based on three key principles: intensive academic studies, on-the-job experience, and strong international exposure. This five-year program trains future graduates for top positions in a wide range of professional fields.
International students can be admitted after a Bachelor in relevant areas and the study towards the Ingénieur Degree or towards a Fésia international Master Degree.
