    Applying to an Exchange Program

    You may apply to an exchange program if you wish to study at a European or international school that has signed a direct agreement with the École des Arts Décoratifs. Applications to an exchange program may be submitted only online.

      Application Procedure

      1. the partner school selects students via the web link it is sent every year.
      2. once selected, students immediately receive by email the link and password they need to apply.
      3. students log in (they may switch to the English version of the website before logging in), fill out the online form and upload:
        -    a portfolio (PDF, 10 MB max)
        -    a cover letter, preferably written in French (PDF, 3 MB max)
        -    CV (PDF, 3 MB max)
        Students then receive a confirmation email. If they do not: the application has not been submitted because the documents exceed the maximum file size.
      4. our teachers consider all the applications and select the best ones.
        Please note that given the high number of applications, not all applicants will be selected.
        Admissions are determined by the department’s referent teacher after reviewing the applications.
