A vocational academic offer adapted to territorial needs.

Deeply concerned about its students’ occupational integration, the University proposes highly professionalizing courses, oriented towards specific jobs, and linked to the main development issues of the territory: digital technology, law, audio-visual media and communication, economics and business management, environment engineering and renewable energies, sustainable tourism, structural engineering, health… Several university schools and faculties organise each year an improvement council. It is composed of representatives of the university and professionals who match the educational programs of the training with the “business related needs” required by the professionals. Block release programs do also have a lot to offer: gaining up to nearly 100% of the SMIC, working in a company while attending courses and preparing a recognized diploma. The principle is simple: the student alternates the periods of courses and the periods inside the company all year round. This organization of block release training facilitates occupational integration since most of the alternating students find a job at the end of their contract. The University of Corsica offers more than thirty block release courses in all sectors, from the BUT to the Masters. Some training courses are supported by regional enterprises so that territorial needs can be met :
