Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon
INSA Lyon is ranked amongst the best French universities for sports and, as such, has obtained excellent championship results. Some students even qualify for European, World Championships and the Olympic Games.
At INSA Lyon, practicing sports is considered to be a crucial component of engineering studies as it contributes to personal development, creativity and openness. It also instils skills in our students, such as teamwork, the ability to adapt to changing conditions, and strengthens their taste for challenging work and risk consciousness.
During their five years of training, physical education courses (usually called ‘EPS’ in French) are part of our students’ schedule and are mandatory.
International students have the possibility to follow their French peers, choosing sports for ECTS credits. Otherwise, they may decide to practice them recreationally.
If international students are top-level athletes in their own countries, they can directly apply to be part of the top-level athletes’ section of INSA Lyon.

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is “The Research University in the Helmholtz Association.” As the only German university of excellence with a national large-scale research sector, we offer our students, researchers, and employees unique learning, teaching, and working conditions. The roots of the academic education institution extend all the way back to 1825. Today’s structure of KIT is the result of the merger of the Technical University of Karlsruhe and Karlsruhe Research Center in 2009.
Presently, more than 9000 people are working at KIT, of which more than half are conducting research in a broad range of disciplines from natural sciences to engineering, to economics, to the humanities and social sciences. This makes KIT one of the largest science institutions in Europe. Apart from excellent academic education and cutting-edge research, innovation is our central task. We do not only create and impart knowledge for the society and the environment, we also use this knowledge to develop applications for industry. It is our goal to help manage global challenges facing humankind by pioneer research contributions in the areas of energy, mobility, and information. Doing this, we attach high importance to permanent contact and exchange with society.”
