General access requirements

Secondary school teacher training (AESS) is open only to holders of a Master’s (second-cycle) degree awarded within the French Community of Belgium or a degree obtained abroad and deemed equivalent in accordance with this Decree, a European directive, an international convention or other legislation, subject to the same requirements.

Students in the final stages of a minimum 120-credit Master’s degree at an institution in the French Community may simultaneously enrol for teacher training. However, students admitted on these terms cannot be officially accepted until they have obtained the necessary Master’s degree.

Specific Admission Requirements

Le programme est accessible à tout étudiant détenteur d'une licence ou d'un master :

  • licence en philosophie; 
  • master (60 et 120) en philosophie;  
  • master 120 en éthique;

Students wishing to enrol in the AESS must have a French Community of Belgium diploma; failing this, they will have to pass a French language proficiency examination to demonstrate that their command of written and spoken French is equivalent to Level C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (for further information, visit https://uclouvain.be/en/study/inscriptions/french-language-master-teaching.html).

Students who already have a 120-credit Master's degree with a professional or research focus and wish to obtain a teaching qualification may enrol either for this stand-alone teacher training programme or for the Master's in Performing Arts with a teaching focus.

French language proficiency examination

Anyone not demonstrating sufficient proficiency in French will not be admitted to teacher training (AESS) examinations.
