1 - Proof of at least three years of previous study in art (academic record) : fine arts, art history, music, architecture, design, film, video, dance ...;
2 - Good knowledge of French: self-assessment (TCF or TEF test B2 in general) ;
3 - Provide the URL for a website containing the following*:
- a cover letter presenting your application
- a personal imaginary art gallery, with a selection of a maximum of 20 works of art that have been of particular importance for you. Be sure to include the format, date, medium, and location for each work.
- twenty or so photographs of your artwork (paintings, sculptures, installations, etc.) with captions.
* Only the content of the website, and not the form, will be taken into consideration; it is in no way necessary to use sophisticated presentations with “flash” animations or other effects. This site will provide the basis on which juries from the art schools may decide to interview candidates by telephone.
Each school can then add their prerequisites: they will be visible on the "prerequisite" tab CampusArt training catalog online.
Start of the new academic
International students (in other words those not of French nationality) having studied art for at least 3 years (or currently in the 3rd year) can apply over the Internet by complet ing just one application which is then sent to all the institutions belonging to the network.
The electronic application form enables students to give details of their academic background. In addition, a paper version of the application (including supporting documents) is mailed to CampusFrance in order to validate the electronic file.
Students provide information in a file to which all CampusArt program directors have access.
Schools from the network then send an offer of acceptance to selected candidates. Candidates are notified whether they have been accepted or not by 11rd april 2012 at the latest.
The electronic file naturally allows students to describe their background and to mention any preferences (programs, fields of study, subjects and type of program). Candidates are free to accept or refuse any offers of a place on a study program. However, they can enroll in only one program .
Enrollment in one of the CampusArt programs is confirmed through the payment of registration fees (300 euros). Candidates are not required to make any further payment until their enrollment is confirmed (except for any expenses incurred relating to documents that need to be furnished with the electronic file).
The actual fees for the program are subsequently paid directly to the selected institution. The total amount is listed in each offer of acceptance sent to candidates.
