They are not required to produce a language certification score (TOEFL/IELTS) but may be requested to do so if the language results on their transcript of records prove insufficient.

Students applying for a double degree are required to take the TOEFL with a minimum score of 85 points or IELTS with a minimum score of 6.5.

FAQS Admissions

Q. I am an international student, can I do your work-study program?

R.Since the entry into force of the law of 7 March 2016 on the rights of foreigners in France, foreign students who are newcomers* are no longer eligible for work-study programmes. To be eligible for this program, you must complete your first year of study in France in initial training. This means that the tuition fees are your responsibility.

Please note: the internship does not fall under these conditions. You can therefore do a sandwich course during your first year of study in initial training.

Q. What do I do if I am denied a visa?

R. In the event of a visa refusal, you may request a refund of the advanced fee, subject to submitting the notification of visa refusal.

Q. Am I accompanied in the visa process?

R. Yes, we do our best to accompany you. However, it is the responsibility of each student to obtain a visa and to have proper documentation.

Q. What is the cost of living in Paris?

R. Paris is one of the most expensive cities in Europe. You should have at least 1000€/month to cover all your expenses.

Nb.: a student visa commits you to attend classes. Students in France on an EDC student visa who do not attend classes will be notified to the prefecture and their student visa will be withdrawn.
