The first important step is to fulfil the entry requirements. All applicants who fulfil the
requirements will be included in the final assessment. The admission procedure involves 2 steps:


Applications are selected based on:

- The academic background of the applicant;

- The results obtained during secondary school studies (10th, 11th, 12th grades). Applicants
will be judged on their level in mathematics, sciences and English.

At the end of this step, the applicants are assigned to one of the three following groups:

- Eligible applicants, who will receive an acceptance letter;

- Ineligible applicants, who will receive a letter of rejection;
- Applicants whose eligibility is still in doubt. They will be invited to an interview.


The interview is only for applicants who were not admitted nor rejected in the first step. It allows
to assess their motivation to study at Ecole Centrale de Nantes and the relevance of their career

The interview could be with a staff of faculty. The interview could be conducted in the Mauritius
campus or by phone (or Skype). The phone or Skype interviews will be conducted with the
