France - Application process

When to Apply

Dates vary from institution to institution. Most courses will have a limited number of places, so students are advised to apply early in the academic year.

Entry requirements

Students are required to hold Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field of study.

A Bachelor’s with honours is usually sufficient, although you may be required to have the equivalent of 240 ECTS (4 years of university-level study)

Each university is free to set its own admission criteria and make its own admission decisions based on each applicant's background and the demands of the programme to which the applicant seeks admission. That freedom allows French institutions to compose well-qualified and well-balanced student cohorts, while also protecting the integrity and the reputation of the education offered.

For Business, Management and similar courses, students may be required to take a Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Graduate Records Examination (GRE). These exams measure verbal, mathematical, integrated reasoning and analytical writing.

Applicants may be required to submit essays as part of their application, or be invited for an interview.

How to Apply

UK/EU applicants should apply directly to the institution.
