Admission Procedure

  • A first short-list is drawn up on based on the application files. Special attention is paid to the quality of the file (relevant supporting documents and information given) and the quality of the academic and/or professional profile. Additional documents may be requested by the admissions board. The jury will decide whether a candidate goes forward to the second phase of the selection process, is placed on a waiting list or is denied admission.
  • Shortlisted candidates are invited for an interview via Skype with a Head of Academic Programme. This interview helps clarify who the applicant is, their projects, their objectives and the consistency of their choices with the programme selected. The final admission decision (offered or denied admission) is publicised a few days after this interview.
  • A candidate who is offered admission is officially notified and invited to make a down payment of € 3,000 for international students (€800 for french students), which will be deducted from the programme tuition fees in due course. This initial payment confirms the candidate's place in the programme and an unconditional letter of admission is then issued.
