What is an IUT ?

An IUT is an Institute of Technology attached to a University. There are 114 IUTs in France. Our IUT is part of CY Cergy Paris University.

What is a DUT ?

The main degree delivered by IUTs. It is a two-year undergraduate vocational degree. It has a national curriculum. The class schedule is very busy: between 30 and 40 hours of class per week (half of these, practical work in laboratories in small groups). The curriculum includes a compulsory ten-week internship. The purpose of a DUT is to prepare technicians ready to enter the job market immediately after their studies. Most students choose to continue their studies:

  • Vocational bachelor’s degree (one more year at IUT)
  • One more year bachelor’s degree at University (then Master’s degree)
  • Engineering or Business Schools
