The Microsoft Campus Program is the partnership programme developed by Microsoft France for higher education establishments. Because mastery of new technologies is now essential for the careers of tomorrow, the Microsoft Campus Program gives students the opportunity to benefit all year round from tools and resources that hold the key to their success.
Through a personalised web platform in the colours of each school, all students and teachers can get low-cost PCs and tablets, free Microsoft software downloads, educational content, offers of internships, apprenticeships and graduate jobs, online competitions and plenty of other resources that are updated on a regular basis.
Launched almost 2 years ago, the Microsoft Campus Program incorporates more than 130 French establishments, allowing 900,000 students to benefit from its resources.
