Enrolling in the first year of a Bachelor's degree

The way to enrol in the first year of a Bachelor's degree varies depending on your situation.

  • If you have a French high school diploma, regardless of your nationality, you must state your wishes on the "Parcours Sup" platform (open on January 15, 2018). The platform replaces the undergraduate admission platform. Follow the "Studying in France" procedure at the same time.
  • If you are a national of the country in which you reside, you must make a preliminary request for admission (DAP) and at the same time follow the "Studying in France" procedure. The DAP is done online on the "Studying in France" platform. It must be completed between November and January preceding the academic year you are applying for.
