The committee’s exam process takes place in two stages.
All applications received will be reviewed by the jury and graded as A, B or C. Depending on the grade obtained, candidates will then be invited to sit the admission test.
Candidates deemed eligible will be invited to attend an interview with the Admissions Committee, which will be in possession of a full copy of the candidate’s application. Candidates may also bring another copy of their application on the day of the interview.
Candidates must have obtained 180 European credits to be admitted to semester 7 (fourth year).
These credits may have been obtained in France as part of a higher education programme at a public or private higher education institution, provided the institution is recognised by the French government or the course is delivered to the level of an equivalent recognised professional certification.
Alternatively, they may have been obtained in another Member State of the European Union or another State of the European Economic Area agreement, as part of studies undertaken at a higher education institution operating under the rules of the European Higher Education Area.
Qualifications obtained outside the European Union or a State of the European Economic Area agreement will be compared with French qualifications.
Non-French-speaking international candidates must have sufficient French language skills to be able to read and communicate. They must also attest to having at least level B2 at the TCF (French language test) or the DELF (Diplôme d'études en langue française) – see www.ciep.fr/tcf for more details – and provide a copy of their qualifications with a certified translation if necessary.
Candidates are required to pay a €50 non-refundable admin fee before sitting the committee. This amount is set annually by the TALM Executive Board.
