Validation of Higher Education (VES)

Step 1: Define your project

The validation of higher education studies (VES) enables a candidate toobtain all or part of a diploma awarded in the name of the State by a higher education establishment, through the validation of higher education studies previously completed in France or abroad, in a public or private establishment or organization of academics , whatever the modalities, duration and mode of sanction.

Take a look at our offer of academics or the component websites and identify the academics for which you wish to submit a VES application.

To help you identify the certification you may be aiming for, you can call on the following services Conseil en Evolution Professionnelle.

Step 2: Administrative file and commitment

Contact us for a VES application form and a quote.

Return this file with your cover letter, curriculum vitae, signed quotation and a cheque for 150€.

This step marks your commitment to the process.

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

Step 3: Educational feasibility study

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

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 full or partial graduation.

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

Step 4: Presenting your project to a jury

Once pedagogical feasibility has been validated, you will be invited to appear before a VES jury made up of teachers.

This assembly determines whether you have acquired the skills and knowledge required to obtain the certification in question.

The jury pronounces :

  • Or full validation: you receive your diploma.
  • Or partial validation: you have not acquired all the ECTS for the certification and will have to obtain them through additional work.
  • Or a refusal to validate: you may be offered new orientations towards other training courses.
