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.
Often the number of applications exceeds the number of places available, so even if you have a letter of recommendation from your school, this does not guarantee acceptance. Selection is made on the basis of the material submitted only.
Please also note that in order to validate the 30 ECTS credits of the semester, you must follow all the courses (in French and sometimes in English).
