All of our programs combine both theoretical teaching and practical work. Our teaching methods are based on active learning in order to match the reality of the professional sector, allowing our graduates to enter the job market quickly and efficiently. The active learning approach is based on practical work in labs, case studies, industrial projects, internships in companies, field visits and more.

In every ISA program, professional immersions (internships and industrial projects) are compulsory and fully integrated into the curriculum. Thanks to this hands-on approach, you are professionally operational even before graduation from ISA. In addition, our programs include project management and intercultural activities to help you develop your abilities to work in a multicultural team and reinforce interdisciplinary skills.

Our diverse course content prepares you for a wide-range of professional opportunities, and working in both English and French means you are ready to take on the global job market.

Credits and Grading Scale 

ISA Lille uses the European Credit Transfer System to facilitate the transfer of credits and ensure the validity of learning outcomes according to the European system. In the ECTS, a full semester consists of 30 credits and a full year of study is 60 credits. ISA Lille’s credit and grading system is fully compatible with the ECTS. 

In addition to a numerical mark, students are given a rank-based grade of their academic performance relative to all students validating the course credits. A student’s general average is calculated on the totality of all marks obtained, including teaching units not validated.  

Rank-based Grade  Distribution among students within course 
A  Top 10% of students who validated the course credits 
B  Next 25% of students who validated the course credits 
C  Next 30% of students who validated the course credits 
D  Next 25% of students who validated the course credits 
E  Remaining 10% of students who validated the course credits 
FX  Incomplete: more work required to validate course credits 
F  Fail: considerable work required to validate course credits 
NS  The size of the group doesn’t allow for the grade to be calculated. The number of students must be more than or equal to 30. The quality of the work provided is therefore indicated solely by the numerical mark out of 20.
