Research and innovation are at the heart of our Physics & Chemistry programme.


The main objective of our Physics & Chemistry training programme is to guide students towards preparing a thesis. To this end, all programme instructors are also researchers active in international competition.

Throughout their training, students attend numerous seminars, which offer them the opportunity to discover subjects on the cutting edge of research and to observe how well-known researchers communicate their discoveries.

Training relies on the laboratories of ENS Lyon and of the Université Claude Bernard. Some practical coursework is carried out at these laboratories, offering students a general overview of Lyon-based research.

Each year is rounded off with a research placement at a laboratory in France or abroad, which allows the student to experience working within a team and to discover the world of academic or industrial research.
