Going abroad

An international dimension is key to your preparation for a global world. University exchanges, international training courses and placements offer a wide range of opportunities for immersion. Studying abroad enables you to master a language, enhance your CV and gain an understanding of international issues: all ingredients to boost your employability!

Grab your passport to the world!

An international dimension is rooted in the DNA of Institut Paul Bocuse. We encourage you to develop your sense of exploration, to travel the world to cultivate your diversity, create your own style, enrich yourself from those around you. We have fostered international openness from the very foundation of our school. We firmly believe that daring to discover the world is the best way to discover yourself and learn our professions, which are essentially people-oriented. Daring to discover the world means becoming a citizen of the world!

Living abroad during your studies will allow you to immerse yourself in a country and its culture, to deal with new and different experiences and get out of your comfort zone. Language skills, autonomy, adaptability, open-mindedness and empathy will be strong assets for your future recruiters.

Placements abroad: the world is your training ground

Do you have a globetrotting spirit, do you want to discover the professional world outside of France? 

In the 2nd or 3rd year of your Bachelor’s degree and at the end of your Bac+5 studies, you will have the opportunity to complete a placement abroad in some of the most prestigious institutions in the world.

These placements allow you to define your future plans, and to discover new methods of managing and organising companies around the world. You will quickly develop an international professional network, a true springboard for your future.

You will forge a solid professional experience in a multicultural environment, a factor that can make the difference with French recruiters looking for international profiles, as well as with international employers, who appreciate French know-how in gastronomy and hospitality.

With no less than 400 placement offers on every continent each year, we invite you to go out there and conquer the world.


WHY GO ABROAD?

  • English, Chinese, German, Spanish… learn a new language day by day and become bilingual.
  • Enhance your CV: international experience shows that you are autonomous, open-minded, curious.
  • Rediscover yourself: revolutionising the everyday with a new city, culture and country is hugely personally enriching, and develops maturity.
  • Ensure a solid and international future for yourself: an experience abroad is a step towards a more international professional life. Nearly 70% of our young graduates start their careers abroad.
