French scholarships a win for Flinders uni students

graduates

Ten Flinders University students are set to kick off international careers with a number of leading French companies, following their success in the June 2018 round of Nicolas Baudin ‘Internship in France’ scholarships.

Industry partners such as Naval Group, Cementys, Semofi and Thales will provide internships for Flinders University students for between three and six months, in collaboration with world-class higher education partners in France.

The successful students will undertake industry-focused research projects in areas such as marine technology, advanced manufacturing, structure and material engineering, and even earthquake engineering. 

Flinders University vice president and pro vice-chancellor (international) Sebastian Raneskold says the internships are a wonderful opportunity for Flinders students to gain invaluable industry experience and to connect with the university’s overseas partners to develop research of global significance. 

“Our success reflects the exceptional skills and global ambition of our students as well as the strong educational and research links between Flinders University and French institutions such as Centrale Nantes, CentraleSupélec and ENSTA Bretagne,” Raneskold said.

In May 2018, Flinders University became a signatory, with other members of the Innovative Research Universities (IRU) Network, to the Nicolas Baudin ‘Internship in France’ initiative offered by the French embassy. The signing event during Flinders University’s French Day was attended by French ambassador to Australia Christophe Penot and Professor Colin Stirling, chair of the IRU and president and vice-chancellor of Flinders University.
