Please remember to include all relevant documentation:

  2. Official transcripts in English and certified copies of all diplomas. If documents are not in English, an official, notarized translation of the originals is required.
  3. Photocopy of a valid passport
  4. For all non native English Speakers, TOEFL or IELTS (Students who have graduated from a previous institution where English was the language of instruction may be waived)
  5. Motivation letter (500 words)
  6. Non-refundable 50 euros application fee. This can be paid online here.

Other documentation may be required depending on the course our Admissions Team will advise.

Step 2 – Application process

Our Admissions Team will review your application.

We will send you a conditional acceptance letter which will list any outstanding conditions. We will remove any conditions that have already been met. If we think the program is not right for you, we will suggest an alternative.

If we have any queries about your application, the Admissions Team will contact you for further information.

Step 3 – Accepting your place

To reserve your place in the program you will need to meet all the remaining conditions, including payment of the deposit/registration fee or proof of government sponsorship. Once all conditions have been met your place can be confirmed.

Please note that if you require a visa to study with us, you may need to provide additional evidence to comply with the visa regulations.

 Step 4 – Confirming your place

Once you have paid your deposit and met all the conditions of acceptance, we will confirm your place and send you an unconditional acceptance letter. If you need a visa, you will need to use this to support your visa application.

Step 5 – Applying for a visa

You will then need to apply for a visa if you require one to study in France. It is your responsibility to obtain a visa before you travel to join the program. If you do not have a valid visa, you will not be able to join the program. Please make sure you apply as soon as possible.

Step 6 – Pre-arrival & arrival 

Several weeks before you are scheduled to start your studies, our Student Support Services will get in touch with you. They are here to assist you with all non-academic matters, including accommodation, health insurance, student activities etc.

You will also receive information about logging into your Student Portal, Blackboard and your student email account.

You should aim to arrive the week before your classes are scheduled to start. An Orientation Day is held on the Friday before classes start.
