The steps to register for CIEF:

Registration is done in two stages:

  • Pre-registration. This is done on-line and only during the pre-registration campaign.
  • Final registration involves different procedures: taking an on-line written and oral test (for DUEF candidates), administrative registration and payment of tuition fees. Administrative registration is done on-line when the University Lyon 2 registration platform opens. It is the only way to obtain the Certificate of Education and the student card.
