How does the ENSCI admission system work?

Admission to the design school is via a competitive selection process open to all French and foreign applicants, regardless of age. Applicants may apply for only one course of study per competitive selection period. Pre-registration is required in all cases, and begins in January of the year. 

When preparing their applications, candidates are encouraged to read the Guide for Applicants and the Competitive Selection Process FAQs.
