About the International Admissions

Are eligible to apply through the international admissions procedure, students who will obtain either a foreign high school diploma or a French baccalauréat obtained abroad.

The international undergraduate admissions is a two step process.

  1. Applicants must first qualify for admission, based on the application form
  2. The admission decision is based on an interview, organized in multiple cities around the world.

More information on the two steps process.

Please note: you can apply through the international admissions procedure only if you wish to attend one of the six regional campuses. If you wish to apply to the campus in Paris, you must sit the entry level exam, administered exclusively in French, regardless of where you obtained your high school or baccalauréat diploma.
