Preregistration must be done online on the eCandidat platform. Take note: this procedure does not apply to students currently registered at the CIEF.

The necessary documents must be deposited on the platform before the end of the pre-registration campaign. They are accepted in French, English and Spanish.
The CIEF reserves the right to request additional documents.
Take note: no files are accepted by post.

Documents to file on the eCandidate platform
Documents to file on the eCandidate platform:
  • The passport (only the page corresponding to the identity);
  • The secondary school diploma, accompanied, if applicable, by the letter of admission to a university, or a graduate diploma;
  • a CV and a letter describing your study plan;
  • An amount of €100 as support costs, to be paid by bank transfer to the Lyon 2 University account. You must provide proof of the transfer. Please note, if you are a refugee, asylum seeker, or under subsidiary protection, you are exempt.
  • If you have passed a French test (DELF, DALF, TCF, TEF…), you can attach a copy of the results obtained. This document is optional for DUEF applicants and compulsory for annual DU applicants.

The support costs are not refundable under any circumstances. In addition to the price of the course, they are valid for one academic year.

PRE-REGISTRATION ON-LINE : plateforme e.Candidat

Take note: the closing of pre-registration is effective as soon as the reception capacity of the Centre is reached, it is therefore likely to be brought forward.
Pre-registration rejection clause by the CIEF: in the event of a file that does not meet the required conditions or if the reception capacity is reached, the CIEF reserves the right not to accept the file.

Important: a preregistration certificate is sent to the applicant after validation of their file (favourable opinion).
This certificate will be used for the long-stay visa application for studies (VLS-TS).
NB.: once the visa has been obtained for a training course, it will not be possible to change that training.
