Complete guidelines

It is important to carefully read the guidelines which regulate the exams sessions.


The Bachelor examination modalities apply to students who must complete a preparatory year or semester, even integrated refresher courses, regarding the use of a dictionary: it is not allowed in case of exams in French, except in the case of exams which allow documentation.

Paper bilingual dictionaries are permitted for Master’s level examinations. No stickers containing any information will be tolerated. Dictionaries will be checked by the invigilators, mainly in the case of examinations where documentation is limited or not permitted.


As it is considered as an exam, you must register in the same way you do as for any exam (the same penalties apply for non registration)

Registration to attend lectures

Registration to attend lectures ("auditeur" status) does not permit access to exams or other assessment mechanisms without prior authorisation by professors. No results are provided to those with this status.
