Work-linked training, a path to success and integration into the company

Work-linked training is a specific academic program that combines periods of training at the University of Perpignan and periods of practice in a company. Work-linked training thus makes it possible, simultaneously, to complete a higher education degree and to acquire professional experience. The forms and rhythms of the work-linked training programme can be different depending on the training and the specifics of the company's business.
