Validation of learning from experience



A return to university study is the best way to launch or consolidate your project.

If you want to:

  • Develop professionally
  • Consolidate professional retraining
  • Achieve a personal project in which study is an advantage
  • Delve deeper into an area of study

... Validation of learning from experience (VAE) is made for you!

VAE gives you the opportunity, under certain conditions, to validate your personal and professional experience in order to access a university education for which you may not have the necessary qualifications. VAE thus provides a new route into university.

This site is here to give you all the information you need in order to understand how VAE works and to direct you towards the contacts who can help you.
