Becoming an apprentice

Why choose apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships enable you to train and work, alternating periods at the IUT with periods in the company.

  • You pay no training fees
  • You obtain a recognized diploma
  • You receive a salary: a percentage of the minimum wage, depending on your age and progress in the training cycle.
  • You are a full-fledged employee of a company: as such, the laws, regulations and collective bargaining agreements of the professional sector and of the company apply to you under the same conditions as to other employees.
  • You may be eligible for housing assistance
  • You can benefit from driving license assistance
  • Your capacity for professional integration is enhanced

Our GOALS are open to apprenticeships

  • BUT GEA and BUT GEII: right from the first year
  • BUT GC-CD and BUT SGM: from 2nd year onwards
  • BUT GMP: from 3rd year onwards

How to become a first-year apprentice at IUT Nîmes

  • You must be under 30 years of age and a national of France or a member state of the European Economic Area.
  • You must apply on the PARCOURSUP platform from January onwards, until the capacity is reached. (Apprenticeship applications are separate applications: if you are applying for both initial training and apprenticeship training, you need to make 2 applications).
  • You must submit your administrative file to the CFA ENSUP LR (Centre de Formation des Apprentis du Languedoc Roussillon).
  • You need to look for a company
  • If your application is accepted, your final admission is subject to the signature of an apprenticeship contract. You will be asked to sign an apprenticeship contract at the administrative registration stage (or, failing that, to obtain authorization from CFA EnSup-LR).
