International graduate admissions: the application file

Required documents

For all programmes you must upload the following documents (in PDF format less than 2Mo) in your application file. Make sure each document is in the required language:

  • CV/Résumé
  • A motivation letter (or 2 letters if you’re applying to 2 programmes), to be written in the dedicated section of your online application. Make sure you write your letter 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. 

If you are not able to provide an academic transcript for the current academic year AND you are in one of the following cases:
- you are in your final year of your undergraduate degree
- you have started a new university course this academic year 2023/2024
- you are currently in an academic exchange programme
Please provide us with a proof of enrollment for the current academic year.

  • If your academic transcripts or your proof of enrollment are not in English or French, please send it in the original language and provide a translation (which can be made by the candidate). Please translate it into English or French depending on the programme you are applying for.
  • 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 grade average (and your graduate 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.
