Holders of a non-University 2nd cycle degree

Only applicable to graduates of higher education institutions of the French Community of Belgium

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.

Candidates who do not fulfil the abovementioned admission requirements, but who have duly attested significant experience relevant to the field of study in question, may apply for admission to the programme on the basis of an individualised admission procedure.

For more information on the procedure for admission by validation of learning from experience (VAE) in the Faculty of Philosophy, Arts and Letters: https://uclouvain.be/fr/facultes/fial/valorisation-des-acquis-de-l-experience-vae.html.

Admission on the basis of validation of learning from experience (VAE) may, in the case of training or experience judged to be valuable but insufficient by the select committee, involve the addition of supplementary classes (from 15 credits to a maximum of 60 credits) integrated into the Master's programme.

Opening to adults taking up their university training

The Centre d'études théâtrales from UCLouvain (CET) promotes the presence of adults alongside young students. To enable them to follow their studies while working, most courses are grouped together on certain days of the week.

Students who can prove they have a professional occupation can request (before 15th October) a reduction (allègement) in their annual programme and, therefore, be authorised to spread the credits of their Master's programme over three or four academic years.

Access on the file

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

If the students' educational background is incomplete, supplementary classes may be integrated into their master's programme.

Students with a Belgian degree
Students whose previous educational background is not included in the above-mentioned admission requirements may apply for admission according to the procedure described below.

Students with an international degree (EU)
Students whose previous educational background is not included in the above-mentioned admission requirements may apply for admission according to the procedure described below.

Students with an international degree (outside the EU)
Students holding an undergraduate and/or postgraduate degree from a university outside Europe may apply for admission, provided they have obtained at least a 55% (or 11/20) general average for all successful academic years at their home university.
Applications that do not meet this minimum average requirement will be automatically rejected.
However, this may be waived provided that the applicant has duly attested significant professional experience (consult Validation of learning from experience).
