A global degree
The CAWEB Master’s is a degree that is decidedly oriented towards the global market. The Master’s program offers seven foreign languages, thus giving its students the opportunity to start a career anywhere around the world, whether it is through the Master’s international partnerships, or through the study trips to the United States, South Africa or Russia to visit innovative web companies.
Our international partnerships
Russia: partnership with Herzen University
Since 2011, the CAWEB Master’s has been working with the Herzen University in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. Thanks to this partnership, Russian-speaking students in their second year of the CAWEB Master’s have the opportunity to spend a part of their second semester in Russia (usually 3 months, from the start of February to the end of April). There, they study languages and localization, while being completely immersed in the country’s culture. This incredible experience is also an opportunity to find an internship in Russia in companies like SEMrush, a major player in the SEO field.
The CAWEB Master’s hosts students from Herzen University in some of its distance learning classes that are held in English (Second year CAWEB Master’s EAD) and hosts professors for short periods of time as well. Graduates from Herzen often complement their education by doing the second year of the CAWEB Master’s after the initial Russian degree. Cooperation between Saint-Petersbourg and Strasbourg thus allows for in-depth and sustainable exchanges.
In 2017, three CAWEB students took part in this exchange.
Italy: take part in a memorable Erasmus exchange
The CAWEB Master’s offers students in their second year of CAWEB Master’s EAD who speak Italian to be part of an Erasmus exchange with the University of Bologna (Forlì campus). Students have the opportunity to live there for 5 months during the second semester as well as study in depth translation and localization with the partner University. The technical classes (web development, graphic design…) are followed as distance learning classes through the CAWEB Master’s distance teaching platform.
As part of this exchange, the CAWEB Master’s hosts an Italian student during the first semester of the first year as well.

New Zealand: upcoming partnership
Partnerships with two universities in New Zealand are currently being negotiated. In addition to this, the Master’s already hosts two “kiwi” professors who give distance learning classes.
The study trips
Trip to San Francisco
In 2015, 2016 and 2017, the CAWEB Master’s organized a study trip to San Francisco through a partnership with “Intern Abroad”, a company specialized in finding jobs for students in the United States.
Meeting major players of the Silicon Valley (Google, Oracle, etc.), allowed the students to experience the world of the web from up close, to discover new practices and to understand American recruitment requirements.
The discovery of co-working platforms such as Parisoma and freelance platforms such as Upwork allows students to consider possibly freelancing after their degree, and to compare the offered solutions with those available in France and especially in Strasbourg (for example Quai N° 10, a co-working space made up of several CAWEB graduates and professors).
This highly formative experience has opened up new professional opportunities for second year CAWEB Master’s students, whose technical and linguistic profile is highly appreciated by American recruiters.
A new destination in 2018: trip to South Africa
In 2018, our second year students had the opportunity to go to Cape Town in order to discover the world of communication in South Africa. This experience allowed them to meet professionals from various fields: localization, marketing and design.
The destination for 2019: Lisbon, which is becoming Europe’s Silicon Valley and has been hosting the Web Summit for over ten years. Several CAWEB graduates were among the visitors of the 2018 edition, which brought together a total of 70,000 participants.
International events and contest
A globally active Master’s
As a member of several international associations and organisms, the CAWEB Master’s allows its students to use platforms such as ELIA, to attend professional fairs organized by Tekom Europe, to use the many resources offered by GALA or to participate in video contests like the “Rising Star Contest” and “Shoot Me Now™“, an international mobile phone video project created by our New Zealand partners in 2010.
In addition to its many partners and its collaborations abroad, the CAWEB Master’s hosts students from all over the world.
