Tuition is entirely paid for by external sources (UIMM and the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region) as well as through the tax Taxe Aprentissage. Students and companies do not pay any part of tuition. However, companies do pay students as defined in the apprenticeship contract.
During the last semester of their apprenticeship contract, students, during their company time, must go on a minimum 2-month long mission abroad. If the company cannot offer an international mission, the student remains employed by the company and is seconded in another ECAM LaSalle partner company. Students carry out research in the new company on a subject offered by the host company, related to their original company, and approved by the School.
