Administrative procedures for admission take a long time. It is always best to initiate yours a year before you actually come to France.
The first step is the application. Later, upon arrival, you have to register as a student. After all this paperwork, you can start your courses.
First step : Application
The first step is the skills endorsement procedure. This allows the university to decide whether you have the requisite knowledge for studying in France. At the end you receive a skills endorsement certificate (certificat de validation des acquis).
The application process requires you to follow a number of steps, depending on your nationality, country of residence and the degree you are applying for.
More information about application procedures for Bachelor and Master's programmes is provided in French.
If you want to do a doctoral degree, read the information on the webpage Doctoral Schools.
Second step : Registration and course start dates
Registration begins in early July each year and is organized by the our Faculties, Institutes and School of Engeneering. Depending on the course you choose, the academic semester starts between September and November, and your course will end in May or June.
