  • Written tests: April 30, 2024.

Procedures of the network of graduate engineering schools

There are also common registration procedures (no evidence, but joint submission of applications/files), such as:

France Agro 3 Procedure : 3 schools united with JUNIA ISA in Lille, ISARA in Lyon and the Purpan school in Toulouse.

  • registrations before March 14 through Parcoursup.
  • mid-April: invitation to interview

INSA Procedure: 7 schools Insa in France and ESITech, ENSCMu, ENSIL-ENSCI, ENSISA, Isis, SUP’EnR

  • registrations before March 14 through Parcoursup.
  • Eligibility results on April 18, 2024
  • Interviews from April 29 to May 7, 2024

Joint competition for undergraduate engineering schools

Some engineering schools now also offer bachelor’s degrees (3-year diploma) accessible after the baccalaureate or in parallel through a specific common procedure:

Power Alpha Bachelor Competition 2024: 14 leading engineering schools, including 3iL-ingenieurs, EBI, EFREI Paris, ELISA Aerospace, ESA, ESAIP, ESEO, ESIEA, ESTBB, ESTIA, ISEN, JUNIA.

  • registrations before March 14 through Parcoursup.
  • Study of your file in April
  • Result in June in Parcoursup

The advantage is being able to apply for 28 Bachelor programs in a single wish, but it has a cost, like other wishes paid on Parcoursup: 50 euros (or 10 for scholarship holders).

Finally, it is worth highlighting another contest, for L2 and L3 university students who want to reorient themselves:

Engineer Pass Competition: about thirty engineering schools (Ensi, INP, etc.)

  • Registration until March 8
  • Eligibility Results: April 5
  • Oral tests: May 25 to June 2
