IMT Lille Douai offers over 15% of the 1,500 places available every year to preparatory class students at the 12 Mines-Télécom entrance exam schools. IMT Lille Douai also offers an excellent post-secondary studies recruitment pathway. Finally, places are offered to French and international students, after selection based on applications or via recruitment sessions abroad.

These different ways of accessing courses via an excellent recruitment process (entrance examination or application-based selection) provide year groups with a wide variety of profiles. This combination of different backgrounds enriches the education through different approaches to engineering science.


At the start of the 2018 academic year, it is possible to join the second year of the Mines Douai engineering cycle, after a M1 (or equivalent degree) through an admission procedure based on student records.

The aim of admission based on student records is to allow talented students to continue their studies in a graduate school of engineering, promoting a cultural mix, a wealth of individual experiences and a multitude of profiles.

This type of admission is for students who have completed the first year of a Master’s cycle (M1) or who can prove they have an equivalent academic level or qualification in certain Scientific or Technical specialisms.

Students from French or international universities submitting an individual application follow the ASTG3 procedure common to 3 schools: IMT Lille Douai, IMT Mines Albi and IMT Mines Alès. Five places are available at IMT Lille Douai through this procedure.

International students from partner schools or universities of IMT Lille Douai may join the second year of the engineering program through international recruitment sessions or conventional recruitment sessions.

ASTG3 common procedure

The following rules govern the common student recruitment procedure for Admissions based on student records into the 2nd year of the engineering cycle.

This procedure, common to four schools, is for students who have completed and validated the first year of a Master’s cycle in certain specialisms, or who have a degree or an equivalent qualification as evidence of having taken a university course of at least four years after the high school diploma. It is split into several stages:

  • creation and admissibility of the application
  • review of the application and eligibility
  • oral admission exams
  • integration

Each school has its own admissible specialisms which can be found in the « Admissions based on Student Records » leaflet.
