    For the Exchange Program (International Students), please use our new platform called ‘Moveon’. Each applicant should create a profile, fill in the information and upload a CV (in French or English), a motivation letter, a portfolio of selected works and a recommendation/nomination letter (approval) of the international coordinator of your institution.

    Online registration

    As always the incoming applications outnumber the available study places so you need to be aware that a nomination from your institution does not guarantee you a place, there will be a selection made on the basis of the application material.

    FYI : if you want to get all the 30 credits ECTS for the semester, you must follow all courses (some are in French).
