VAPP stages

Step 1: Define your project

Take a look at our offer of academics or the component websites and identify the academics for which you would like to submit a VAPP application. Then attend one of our VAPP information meetings organized at the Annecy, Chambéry and Annemasse university sites. You must attend before submitting your application.

Free of charge and open to all, these VAPP information meetings are essential to help you understand precisely the conditions, procedures, support, financing and timetables specific to the VAPP scheme.

Step 2: Administrative file and commitment

Contact us for an administrative file and a quote:

Return this file, together with your cover letter, curriculum vitae and signed quotation, at least three months before the VAPP commission.

This step marks your commitment to the process.

On receipt, the VAPP department will examine the administrative feasibility of your request.

Stage 3: Educational feasibility study

Once you have obtained a positive administrative feasibility opinion, the VAPP department will request a study of the pedagogical feasibility of your VAPP.

This study is carried out by the teacher in charge of academics , based on your CV and cover letter.

This teacher studies the strengths/weaknesses for resuming studies.

They may contact you directly to discuss your application by e-mail, telephone or in person.

Step 4: Presentation of your project to the VAPP committee

Once the educational feasibility of your project has been validated, the VAPP commission will meet to study it. Your attendance is optional.

This commission determines whether you have acquired the skills and knowledge required to enroll in the academics program.

The commission pronounces :

  • Either a favorable decision: you are authorized to register with academics at the academics continuing professional development rate.
  • Or an unfavorable decision: access to academics is refused. New orientations towards other training courses may be suggested.

Please note: VAPP does not exempt you from completing the application form for academics. You must therefore, in parallel with the VAPP, complete the application form according to the procedures indicated on the website of the desired academics and within the given deadlines.
