International mobility is a key factor in the training at VetAgro Sup.
A mobility project can extend from 2 weeks to an academic year, with different goals: language immersion session, work placement in a company or in a veterinary clinic, pre-optional internship for engineering project, but also one or two semesters of end-of-course training or internship. In 2013, 110 engineering students and 108 veterinary students completed an internship abroad. 25 engineering students and 18 veterinary students had an academic mobility (semesters of study).
