Ability in English required

All classes are conducted exclusively in English, therefore a good level of proficiency in this language is required (equivalent to English level C1 on the European scale “CEFR”).

It is not necessary to include proof of language proficiency with your application. However, your level of English will be assessed at the admission interview to ensure that you are able to understand and follow the desired programmes.

Once you apply

The application process is done online and we assess the acceptability of your application.

You will be asked to upload the usual registry documents: your CV and a cover letter. Recommendation letters are not mandatory.

Your English proficiency will be assessed by your understanding during the admission interview. You are more than welcome to provide any English proficiency test that you may have taken.

Engineers who have graduated from Arts et Métiers are eligible to a fast-track and preferential admission process.

Online entry exam

If your application is declared acceptable, we will send you a link to take the online entry exam.

Admission interview

Once we assess the results from the online exam entry and that you are declared eligible (admissible), we will invite you for a short admission interview. This interview lasts around 20 minutes.

Each week, the Eligibility Committee decides whether your application is suitable for admission.

Again, don’t worry too much here: they will just make sure that you have a sufficient educational and/or professional background to follow our state-of-the-art programmes.

You are a matriculated student!

After the admission interview we will declare you admitted or not.

Once you are admitted, in order to be matriculated and to send you the official admission letter, you will be asked to pay 10% of the total tuition fees. The amount will depend on the Applied MSc programme and study mode chosen.

Once the payment is done, you will officially be matriculated.

Regarding the apprenticeship study mode (in France only), all tuition fees are paid by the host company.

You are in France (on-campus students)

You are either sunbathing in Sophia-Antipolis or falling in love with Paris.

Ok, let’s be honest, you’ll have to give some extra administrative information and upload a few documents.
