WASAA Academy is a program of the Franco-Australian WASAA Consortium. It aims to offer suitable academic modalities for Australian students wishing to study at French universities and Grandes Ecoles in Brittany. The program also encourages meetings with French professors with a view to enrolling in a long-term master’s or doctoral program or apply to an internship in a French laboratory. WASAA offers year-round training programs and internship opportunities tailored to Australian students.


WASAA (Western Alliance for Scientific Actions with Australia) is a consortium of French higher education institutions in Western France interested in establishing partnerships with higher education institutions in South Australia.

The cooperation is based on the inter-governmental agreement signed on 20 December 2016 in Adelaide between Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and the French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian. WASAA’s objective is to strengthen research partnerships between signatory institutions and encourage student exchanges between France and Australia.

French Academic Partners

WASAA is based on the association of 6 higher education institutions of Western France:


ENSTA Bretagne,

French Naval Academy,

IMT Atlantique,

UBO (University of Western Brittany)

These institutions are both synergetic and complementary in their study programs and research activities, especially in the fields of ocean engineering and defense.
