The IRUP is a higher education teaching institute for students who combine working and studying conjointly. It is located on the industrial campus in Saint-Etienne.

Created in 1995 on the initiative of the Rhone Alps Region to develop conjoint working and studying in higher education in order to rise to the needs of the economic world in terms of competences, the ambition of the IRUP is to be a “Talent Activator” for young people, for staff and for job searchers.

The IRUP that today has around 2.500 graduates, proposes five training fields (from one to five years of University studies) that lead directly to jobs that guarantee a good level of employability to students and very often immediate access to jobs.
