French Courses for International Students (FLE)

Every year, ISAE-SUPAERO welcomes 1,700 students, 34% of whom come from abroad. Sixty nationalities can be found on campus.

Approximately 350 international students take the French courses organized by the Institute. These courses are for students in the "Ingénieur ISAE-SUPAERO" program and the "Master of Science in "Aerospace Engineering". They are also open to post-graduates and interns from the various departments at the Institute.

These courses are designed to facilitate the students’ social, cultural and academic integration.



Beyond scientific excellence, ISAE-SUPAERO wishes to guarantee its international partners the quality of its teaching in French as a Foreign Language.
The FLE Quality Label obtained in December 2020, with the maximum score of 3 stars, makes the Institute the first Grande École in Toulouse to be labeled.
