Therefore, students save time and money by applying through “Join a School in France” and they maximize their chances of being accepted by a top-ranked School in France.

Please keep in mind that “Join a School in France” recruits international students for the Master’s in Management program only.

Where and how to apply?

The application process is entirely through Join a School in France‘s website. Every year, 4 admission rounds are organized between October and June. The admission’s calendar is available here.

What are the different steps of the admission process?

“Join a School in France” has made the application process as simple as possible. Please see the key steps below.

  1. Complete and submit the online application form

The application process begins on this link.

Students must provide below documents, either in French or in English:

  • An identity document (passport or national ID card)
  • A CV
  • An official diploma or certificate of attendance if the student have not yet graduated
  • A complete transcript of the bachelor
  • The official score report of the written test (GMAT, GRE, CAT, GMAT)
  • The official score report of the English test
  • 2 letters of recommendation
  • The proof of payment (students only have to pay 200€ in application fees for the 5 Business Schools).


  1. Have an interview

This is one of the biggest advantages of “Join a School in France”: students only have to take a single interview while applying to several business schools.

After the “Join a School in France” team receives the students’ applications, they send them to each school so that they can review the applications in detail. Shortlisted candidates will be invited for one interview even though they have been pre-selected by several schools.

The interview is conducted in English by a minimum of 2 alumni of one of the 5 schools or Campus France Singapore staff. It is face-to-face and would take place in the Embassy of France in Singapore.

The purpose of the interview is to assess the student’s personality and goals, as well as their communication skills, general knowledge and analytical capacities.

What about the admission results?

After the interview, all elements of the application and the interview results are reviewed by the schools. The final admission decision is communicated by email to the students. If a student has been admitted to several schools, they will decide which school they want to join.
