Benjamin, Bryan, and Thomas—all second-year students at Grenoble Institute of Technology’s Phelma engineering school—started their electro-pop-rock band Parallax eighteen months ago. In March they came in first in a Grenoble-Alpes University music competition. In September 2017 they were granted “student artist” status, which allows them to earn three ECTS credits each year and skip certain classes. Until recently, only those students who had high-level training in the arts were eligible for “student artist” status. Now, any student engaged in a major project in the arts can apply.
Grenoble Institute of technology has a total of 27 student artists, six of whom are enrolled at Phelma (the members of Parallax and three other classical musicians also enrolled at the Conservatory).
