Multi Campus Multi District Link Programme

The programme aims to open up access to higher education opportunities for young people who may not otherwise have had the opportunity. It targets students in high school in France’s priority education areas or institutions with similar social and cultural characteristics.

The programme builds strong links between high school students and their counterparts in higher education. It combines academic support, cultural and entrepreneurial development and shared experiences.  


The Astuce-Lycéens association is a forum for the programme’s 200-plus student-tutors. It supports extra-curricular activities in culture, science or sport jointly organised by high school and higher education students.

The association has recently been awarded the Citizenship Trophy by the Progrès Group and the Rhône-Alpes Diversity Group, and the Student Citizen Prize by the ADECCO Foundation.
