Each student's choice of major must be discussed with the EEEA admissions committee, which will accept the student's application and consider the actual situation to make decisions. See the appendix for specific choices of majors.
EEEA's program in China is a four-year program, and all entering students are required to take the Chinese Language Proficiency Test (HSK) at the end of their first year of study. We expect each student to become fluent in Mandarin through participation in the program.
The program provides on-campus housing. Overseas students can apply to live with Chinese students to gain a deeper understanding of Chinese culture and a faster mastery of Mandarin.
Students interested in applying for admission to the EEEA graduate program must meet the following requirements:
- Graduates of high school (high school diploma and relevant transcripts required)
- Proof of B2 (TCF, TEF or DELF/DALF accepted) in French or B2 (IELTS or TOEFL accepted) in English (students whose native language is English or French may apply for exemption)
The EEEA Admissions Committee will accept students on a rolling basis, according to students’ motivation, merit, and application.
The EEEA campus in China follows the general rules of Chinese universities and has a dual semester system, with a fall semester and a spring semester. The fall semester runs from September to January, and the spring semester runs from February to July. Winter break varies each year depending on the date of the Chinese New Year, and summer break is from July to August.
Courses at EEEA's China campus are structured according to Chinese university credits, but all course credits can be converted to ECTS (European Credits Transfer System), which is a common European credit. To obtain a bachelor's degree, students must complete a minimum of 180 ECTS credits.

Students who meet the requirements for graduation will receive a License diploma (Bac+3), recognized by the French Ministry of Education.
If the students pass the HSK test and meet the graduation requirements of the local partner institution, they will also receive a bachelor's degree recognized by the Chinese Ministry of Education.
The English-taught majors are as follows:
Bachelor of Business Administration - International Economics and Trade track.
Bachelor of Science in Computer Science - Computer Science track; Artificial Intelligence track
Bachelor of Engineering - Civil Engineering track
Bachelor of Arts - Chinese Culture and Language track
If a student chooses to study in the program taught in Chinese, it is recommended to pass the HSK exam at the end of the first year, and then book an appointment with the academic tutor to discuss. The major can be decided from a wider range of options.
