Admission to the school is by a competitive selection process open to all students with a good command of French and who meet the following criteria: they must be creative, motivated, have a sense of observation and analysis, able to reflect and to see the overall picture, as well as having good interpersonal skills.
The competitive selection process takes place in spring. Classes start in September.
Organisation of the selection process:
From 2010, selection is open to foreign candidates with low French language ability who are able to study in English. These candidates must have a minimum of 3 years university level education (Bachelor degree or equivalent) and a basic knowledge of French. These candidates may present their application in English and request an interview in English. In the event of being accepted, these students will join an English-speaking project group during the first semestre, whilst following a self-financed intensive French language programme (provided by ENSCI). After successfully completing this adaptation period of six months, students will join the normal programme for a further period of 3 years.
Duration of studies depends on entrance category:
Depending on student's initial training, the jury may decide to prolong the duration of studies, in particular for Category III.
