PROCEDURE FOR STUDENTS RESIDING IN FRANCE

Registration for first-year bachelor's degree programs [licence 1]

You must fill in the university application form "Dossier vert de Demande d’Admission Préalable (dossier DAP)" [Preliminary Admission Application (DAP) file].
Once the dossier vert has been completed, it must be submitted to the university closest to your place of residence.

More information here.

You must provide the proper credentials permitting you to access your intended course of study - namely, a high school diploma. For example, in France, this is typically the baccalauréat and in China it is the Gaokao (national higher education entrance examination).

You must complete the process between November 15 and January 22 of the academic year preceding your registration at the university.

Important! You may only apply to three different universities.

The institution to which you submit your application will communicate it to the institution you have marked as your first choice.
