However, validation of prior experience does not automatically apply to all courses. Find out more about Validation of priori experience.

 

Entry to all Masters (with the exception of Advanced Masters) can be gained through the special procedure for accrediting prior learning and experience known as VAE (validation des acquis de l'expérience).

Students at the Open Faculty of Economic and Social Policy fall mainly into this category. For further details about how to apply, see FOPES
