*Warning regarding our delay in opening applications this year*
After an intrusion in its IT servers in early December 2022, Grenoble INP - UGA has decided to disconnect all of them from our networks. We have since been working with specialists to solve the issue.
Therefore, we are currently unable to provide you with all the information necessary as well as follow up on the deadline to start the application process (which should have started in December).
The application website is now finally running (as of January 18th) but the early bird fee will end very soon.
Thank you for your understanding.
