MASTER : admission on file

Admission to the 2nd year

ENS Paris-Saclay offers high-level students motivated by research and/or higher education the possibility to prepare the ENS Paris-Saclay diploma. Students are recruited on the basis of their academic record and, if necessary, an oral admission test.

Recruitment through the student route allows access to the status of "normalien-student". This status offers the same training and the same pedagogical follow-up as for the normaliens élèves. Their administrative status is different from that of student normaliens: they are not recruited as civil servants during their studies, they are not paid and they are not subject to the ten-year commitment.
At the time of their application, they must be in a L2 (or equivalent) program for recruitment in the 1st year or L3 (or equivalent) for recruitment in the 2nd year.

Basic and Engineering Sciences

Human and social sciences

Normaliens students are recruited to complete their studies within a department after their admission.
