INFORMATTION ON THE TIMETABLE AND ADMISSION PROCEDURES ONLY CONCERNS THOSE APPLICANTS WHO HAVE ALREADY REGISTERED. REGISTRATION HAS BEEN CLOSED SINCE FEBRUARY 28, 2020.
Entrance to Beaux-Arts de Paris is by competitive examination, for those with a minimum of a high-school diploma (Bac). There is no age limit.
Admission to the school is only by the entrance examination.
Beaux-Arts de Paris does not utilize the “Parcoursup” preadmission process.
Applicants may apply for admission to the school a maximum of three times.
The cost of participating in the entrance examinations is fixed by ministerial order and totals €53 (for scholarship applicants, exemption is possible with documentation).
Foreign applicants are subject to the general admission system. To join the school, a good knowledge of French is recommended; the jury will judge the candidate’s mastery of the French language during the admission interview.
Beaux-Arts de Paris expects applicants to be able to express the fullness of the creative universe they are in the process of constructing. Applicants are expected to demonstrate—beyond the conventional—through their dossier, the written exams in drawing and general culture, and finally during the interview, their commitment, originality, and artistic practice on the basis of work in progress, research projects, references, or any other manifestation that will enable the jury to identify a unique approach.
There are two types of admission:
- entry into first year
- entry into study courses
For all applicants, the entrance exam includes an eligibility test based on their dossier, and in the case of eligibility, an admission test via interview.
For applicants entering first year, the admission interview is accompanied by a drawing test and an analysis and culture test, both compulsory.
Each test is eliminatory and any applicant who does not take part in one of these tests will be deemed to have withdrawn.
To apply, applicants must hold a baccalaureate or equivalent diploma, or be likely to do so by October 1 of the current year. In the absence of the required diploma, applicants may submit a curriculum vitae with their dossier and a request for exemption, addressed to the director.
