To apply for first-year higher education studies, you must first register with the website Etudes en France (https://pastel.diplomatie.gouv.fr/etudesenfrance/dyn/public/authentification/login.html) before applying to Les Facultés de l'Université Catholique de Lille

STEP 1
CREATE YOUR ACCOUNT ON ETUDES EN FRANCE

First you must set up an account on the portal Etudes en France.

Step 1 – create an account (“personal information” section): give the number of an identity document and your personal details. Upload a photograph and a scan of your identity document.

Step 2 – complete your CV: describe your education and/or professional experience. Detail your career plan and motivations. Upload any supporting documents.

Step 3 – select the study programmes that interest you in the menu “applications”

Check carefully any requirements mentioned in the descriptions of the programmes. Also, check that the programme corresponds to your project.

You may then send your application by clicking on “submit file.” Make sure the information you send is accurate, because you will not be able to change it later on.

Campus France will check your file and invite you to an interview if necessary.

NB: log onto the portal regularly to check for our answer. You will have to undertake other procedures at the same time for the admissions phase (Steps 2-8) and if you are accepted for the registration phase (Steps 9-12). 

STEP 2
LOG ONTO “ADMISSION POST BAC”
AS FROM 20 JANUARY

The first step consists in logging onto the Admission Post Bac website. 

Before beginning your application, you must be in possession of:

  • An electronic address that will remain valid until September
  • Your INE/BEA number (10 figures + 1 letter). You will find it on the results sheet for the early papers of the Baccalaureate. NB: Students from the European Union, the European Economic Space or the Swiss Confederation, should enter their date of birth and tick "vous n'avez pas de n° INE.” You will be asked to provide various information, after which you will be allocated an APB file no. and a confidential code. NB: they will only appear once. Look after them carefully, they are required for logging on.
  • Your Baccalaureate registration number, known as the "n° OCEAN," if you are an independent candidate for the Baccalaureate in France.
  • Your results sheet for the early papers of the Baccalaureate or the results of the Baccalaureate itself.
  • The most recent income tax notification of your parent(s) or guardian(s), if you wish to carry out a grant allocation simulation. The faculties take into account your income and the allocation of any grants when calculating your tuition fees.
USEFUL TIPS

Your login information is your INE/BEA number and your date of birth. Complete and check your administrative file before making any applications. The admissions procedure on Admission Post Bac follows a very precise timetable! Please follow it carefully to avoid your application being cancelled... APB is a procedure for admissions, not registration. Therefore, it does not exempt candidates from registering on the Faculty éspace admission, once their application has been accepted (STEP 8).

 

STEP 3
DECIDING ON YOUR APPLICATIONS
FROM 20 JANUARY TO 20 MARCH, 6 p.m.

You may apply for 24 programmes at the most, including a maximum of 12 per type of programme (“Prep” classes, Bachelor degree, Business School, etc.).

The Faculties offer 3 types of training programme. We recommend you to take careful note of their features.

  • Selective Programmes: Candidates are accepted or refused. The number of places is limited. All candidates undergo the same selection procedure.
  • Conditional programmes: Candidates are accepted without a selection process. However, the number of places is limited. Candidates are prioritised based on the education authority in which they sit the Baccalaureate (Candidates are drawn by lot if there are not enough places).
  • Non-selective programmes: Candidates are accepted without a selection process. The number of places is not limited. Candidates are prioritised based on the education authority in which they sit the Baccalaureate.

STEP 4
RANKING YOUR APPLICATIONS
FROM 20 JANUARY TO 31 MAY AT MIDNIGHT

You may modify the order of preference of your applications until 31 May at midnight.

NB

APB runs on Paris time. If you wish to modify the order of preference of your applications, make sure you take into account any time differences.

APPLICATION No. 1 IS YOUR FIRST CHOICE

  • Any applications not ranked will be cancelled
  • If you only rank one application, you must rank it no. 1
  • The order of preference of your applications is very important. For this reason, you are given a long time to make changes (from 20 January to 31 May 2016). This is because when you are offered a place, this cancels once and for ALL applications ranked below it (since you have received an offer for an application you preferred).
STEP 5

FROM 2 APRIL TO 6 MAY

CONFIRMATION OF APPLICATIONS AND SUBMISSION OF YOUR FILE:

Some of Les Facultés de l'Université Catholique de Lille conduct a selection process for admission to bachelor degree courses, based on your application form and/or an interview.

Check the details of the selection processes of the departments concerned on the Admission Post Bac website.

STEP 7
ADMISSION PHASE
8 JUNE TO 19 JULY 2 p.m.

From 8 June, onwards, places will be offered in 3 phases:

  • Phase 1 : 8 June 2 p.m. to 13 June 2 p.m.
  • Phase 2 : 26 June 2 p.m. to 1st July 2 p.m.
  • Phase 3 : 14 July 2 p.m. to 19 July 2 p.m.

NB, these times are also Paris time.

You may make one of 4 answers :

unconditional acceptance

 

You unconditionally accept the course you are offered. No other programme will be offered to you, and you do not have to respond to offers in later phases. Note that if you refuse this course later on, you will have to log on to inform the establishment concerned of your withdrawal.

conditional acceptance

 

You accept the course you have been offered for the moment, but you would like to wait for the next phase to obtain an offer for a course that is ranked higher in your list. If you receive a better offer during the next phase, you lose your rights over the initial offer. Furthermore, if you do not receive a better offer during the next phase, you must confirm your answer. NB, when you choose a conditional acceptance, you must confirm this choice at each phase (if you do not do so, you may be considered as having withdrawn).

conditional refusal

 

I withdraw all my applications :
You no longer wish to apply for any of the programmes in your list of applications.
This withdrawal is definitive.

USEFUL TIP

If you do not give an answer to any offer before the deadline, you are considered and having withdrawn and ALL your applications are cancelled.

 

STEP 8
ADDITIONAL APB PROCEDURE
FROM 27 JUNE 2 p.m. TO 15 SEPTEMBER AT MIDNIGHT

The additional procedure consists of 4 steps :

  • Step 1 : Registration on internet for candidates who have not yet submitted a file
  • Step 2 : Submission of files
  • Step 3 : Selection of applications from 24 June 2 p.m. to 9 September at midnight

Deadline for ranking applications 9 September at midnight

Checking applications from 27 June 2 p.m. to 15 September at midnight

Answers from 27 June 2 p.m. to 15 September at midnight

NB : Paris time ! (GMT+2)

  • Step 4 : Admissions

The purpose of the additional APB procedure is to put establishments that still have vacancies in contact with candidates who have no offer. Some programmes of Les Facultés de l'Université Catholique de Lille take part in the additional APB procedure ! The additional procedure can provide a solution in the following cases :

CASE
NO.1

 

 

 

You have no offers. You made no applications before 20 March but have done so since then, but you have not received

any offers.

You can use the additional APB procedure to apply for any type of programme (cf. STEP 2)

 

CASE
NO.2

You are waiting for an offer concerning one or more applications and the results of the 3rd admissions phase.

You may also apply for any type of programme.

If you receive several offers via the additional procedure, and an offer via the “normal” procedure, as soon as you accept an offer all the others are cancelled.

CASE
NO.3

You have received an offer for a selective programme.

You may only apply for non-selective programmes.

NB: you should be aware that not all degree courses are available via the additional procedure. You have first to withdraw from the normal procedure, and this withdrawal is definitive. You should therefore make sure that the programme you would like to apply for is available via the additional procedure (check for availability on the website).

case
no.4

You have received an offer for a non-selective programme

If it is not your first choice, you may apply for every type of programme offered.

case
no.5

You have automatically been withdrawn because you did not answer before the APB deadline

You may apply directly to the university to be reaccepted for the programme. If the university accepts, you may no longer refuse the offer.

 

USEFUL TIPS

 

The additional procedure is not available to students of foreign nationality who are not nationals of the European Economic Area or Switzerland. This is because the timetable for the additional procedure does not allow enough time for students to obtain a visa.

European candidates may apply for any of the programmes offered via the additional procedure. (However, they must fulfil the conditions for access set by the current regulations).

 

STEP 9
LOG ON TO THE ÉSPACE ADMISSION

If your application has been accepted on APB and you have unconditionally accepted the offer, you may fill in the registration form on our Éspace admission website and become one of our students for the next academic year!

Admission Post Bac will send you an email inviting you to log onto our Éspace admission.

Your user name and password are identical to those you used for the Admission Post Bac website. 

STEP 10

During this last phase you may choose your method of payment and print out your financial engagement contract.

When you have signed your financial engagement contract you should send it along with the other necessary documents (listed on the engagement contract) to the following address : SERVICE GESTION DES AFFAIRES ETUDIANTES, 60 bd Vauban, CS 40109, 59 016 Lille Cedex. 

useful tip

Your registration will only be definitively recorded when we receive your : 
- signed financial engagement contract
- Associated means of payment by cheque, direct debit (SEPA), or bank transfer (copy of the transfer order).

You will then have access to your student portal, on which you will find a copy of your invoice, the payment schedule, student attendance certificate, etc.

 

STEP 12
RECEIPT OF YOUR STUDENT CARD

Your student card will be sent by the Student Affairs Management Department, subject to the academic, administrative and financial approval of your registration.

If you have any questions, you may contact the central reception for Les Facultés de l'Université Catholique de Lille, located on the ground floor of the hôtel académique, 60 boulevard Vauban.

You will need your student card to access the library and borrow books, to sit exams, to log onto the various information services available to you and to obtain reductions in certain catering outlets and cinemas.

It also serves as an electronic multiservice card! After loading it at a  top-up terminal (near the printing department on the ground floor of the Hôtel Académique), you can use it to make photocopies, prints and scans, and to pay for food and drinks from vending machines.
