We just lately acquired a diploma titled Grade de Grasp in Elementary Training, with emphasis in Educating Social Sciences and transcripts for one yr of examine (60 ECTS) accomplished at a college in France. For the aim of defending the id of the person who submitted mentioned paperwork, we won’t disclose the title of the college. We are able to, nonetheless, state that the college is acknowledged and the Grade de Grasp was issued by the Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur, de la Recherche et de l’Innovation (Ministry of Greater Training, Analysis and Innovation).

What was attention-grabbing about this case was that there was a 15-year hole between when the person had completed highschool (Baccalaureat) and began the Grade de Grasp program. Once we requested our applicant to supply credentials for earlier college research, e.g. Licence or Bachelor, we have been advised they didn’t exist as the person by no means studied for a Licence or Bachelor or another college diploma, aside from the Grade de Grasp.

We requested for extra info on the standards for admission to the Grade de Grasp program as we sometimes see completion of the three-year Licence or Bachelor as a requirement. We have been knowledgeable by the person of the existence of a legislation in France the place an individual who’s the guardian of three kids can take part in a particular lottery to win admission to the Grade de Grasp program.

With a view to confirm this declare, we requested the person to supply us with the hyperlink to the part addressing this three-child coverage which would seem within the Bulletin Officiel (B.O.) of the Ministère de l’Éducation Nationale, de la Jeunesse et des Sports of France. The B.O. is the reference for all French training which lists all packages and instructing directives. It’s amended many instances yearly.  The B.O. could be very dense and trying to find info related to the topic one is searching for is finest left with the person who studied within the system. We requested our applicant to level us to the part within the B.O. that addresses the 3-child coverage. We have been directed to merchandise 6.3 within the B.O. which confirms that a person with three kids however no earlier college research might take part in a lottery and the winner will likely be admitted to the Grade de Grasp program.
