Incomplete applications will not be taken into consideration.

You must submit your application by the earliest deadline of the selected programmes (or by the deadline of the Boutmy or Eiffel scholarship, if applicable). 

For further information, please check our application guide

required Documents

For all programmes you must upload the following documents (in PDF format) in your application file. Make sure each document is in the required language:

  • CV/Résumé

  • A personal statement (or 2 statements if you’re applying to 2 programmes), to be written in the dedicated section of your online application. Make sure you write your statement in the language requested for the programme.

  • Official academic transcript(s) (signed and/or stamped) for the entirety of your time in higher education (including periods spent abroad on exchange programmes). Acceptable formats include scanned copies of paper transcripts produced by the institution, electronic transcripts produced by the institution, and web-based academic records produced by the institution and containing your name and the name of the institution. The Admissions Office reserves the right to request official transcripts at any time during the application process. 
  • An official or informal translation (the translation can be made by the candidate) in English, if applicable
  • Language Test scores (where applicable)

  • Two academic references. If you have professional experience, we advise you to provide professional references. For some programmes, professional recommendations are mandatory.

  • Your cumulative grade average (and your graduate cumulative grade average if applicable). Please provide one certificate per degree and/or institution attended. 

Please note : If one of your choices is a dual degree with a non-French university, you must provide your original documents regardless of their language, along with a translation (official or not) into English only.

Specific documents

For some programmes, additional documents may be required (e.g. professional reference, GRE, GMAT, a copy of your law degree...)

Please do not overload your application with non-requested documents.
