Work placements during a study tour

Students coming to ESA for a study tour within the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme or a bilateral agreement may complete a work placement before or after the period of their course.
The students have to carry out their own agricultural research in France, with methodological support from the ESA lecturers: advice in drafting a CV, on writing a letter of motivation and on the choice of companies to contact.

Summer work placement on a farm: come and discover French agriculture!

The work placements are organised by ESA in association with our foreign partner universities.
Duration : 1 – 3 months
Objective : Completing a work placement of a few months on a French farm is the ideal way to start a study tour or a degree course at ESA.
Such an experience allows you to acquire a mastery of the French language, which will be essential to follow your courses, and will also allow you to discover the culture of the country and the agriculture of the Pays de la Loire region.

You are:

  • on a farm, the type of which will depend on your interests (dairy, pig, vegetable, horticultural, etc.)
  • lodged and fed in the farmer’s family for the duration of your stay. You participate in all the work of the farm and the life of the family.
