Holders of a non-University 2nd cycle degree

Les programmes de master de l’enseignement supérieur artistique et de l’enseignement supérieur hors université cités ci-dessous (catégorie 3) donnent un accès direct au master moyennant : (1) des connaissances théoriques et/ou une expérience pratique en arts du spectacle acquises antérieurement à l’entrée en master; (2) la remise d’un dossier; (3) un entretien d’admission obligatoire, à la mi-septembre, à l’issue duquel le jury peut décider d’un complément éventuel de 15 crédit maximum, à suivre durant la 1ère année du master.

Adults taking up their university training

> See the website Valorisation des acquis de l'expérience

It is possible to gain admission to all masters courses via the validation of professional experience procedure.

Pour accéder au master en arts du spectacle, les adultes en reprise d’études, s’ils ne sont pas titulaires d’un diplôme autorisant l’accès direct au master,  peuvent faire valoir les savoirs et compétences utiles acquis par leur expérience personnelle ou professionnelle (VAE). Cette expérience utile doit correspondre à au moins cinq années d’activités, compte non tenu des années d’études supérieures qui n’ont pas été réussies. Au terme d’une procédure d’évaluation, un jury juge si les aptitudes et connaissances des candidats sont suffisantes pour suivre le master avec succès et impose éventuellement un complément de cours de 15 crédits maximum (ces cours seront désignés par le jury parmi les cours de l’année préparatoire et suivis durant la première année du master). Le Centre d’études théâtrales favorise résolument la présence des adultes aux côtés des jeunes étudiants. Pour leur permettre de suivre les études tout en travaillant, les cours sont en majorité regroupés sur certains jours de la semaine. Les étudiants qui justifient d’une occupation professionnelle sont autorisés à étaler leur master sur trois ou quatre années, à condition que la décision soit prise avant l’inscription à l’année d’études et reçoive l’accord de la direction du Centre.

Access on the file

Reminder : all Masters (apart from Advanced Masters) are also accessible on file.
