1 Students who wish to do so may participate in the back to school day of the international students which will take place on 25/08/2022. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that between 01/09 and the start of the Master's programme, activities are not necessarily organised by Centrale Lyon. Nevertheless, this time can be useful to settle in peacefully and to carry out the administrative procedures related to the arrival in a foreign country.

Thursday 1st September 2022

As a reminder, any student who, although having made known their acceptance of admission to the École Centrale de Lyon, does not appear on the first day of the school year, will be considered to have resigned. In the event of a major reason justifying a possible delay, please inform the Ecole's school service.
