Besides admission through the same procedures as French applicants, international applicants can follow specific admission channels: the special international-cycle competitive entrance exam, for the MP, PC and PSI streams.
International-cycle competitive entrance exam
This particular entrance exam is reserved for international students who have not taken higher education studies in France. The written tests take place abroad, in countries where there are educational programmes covering the Grandes Écoles preparatory classes (Lebanon, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia). The oral tests take place at CentraleSupélec.
