French engineering school ESILV students must spend a semester or more abroad anytime from year 3 to 5. Why not in Australia? Anne-Sophie Morvan, manager at Francaustralia Education presented the University of Newcastle to ESILV students. An occasion to find out about this academic partner and more specifically its Faculty of Engineering.

Newcastle is the seventh biggest city in Australia. Located in the New South Wales, right by the coast, it is surrounded by eight beaches.
