Applicants must hold a Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent (180 ECTS) in biology, food science, chemistry, physical chemistry or engineering science. Those having completed a Master’s Degree or equivalent (240 ECTS) related to biology, chemistry or physical chemistry can apply directly to the 2nd year.

Candidates for whom English is not their mother tongue or who haven’t done their studies in English will have to give a certificate to attest of their English level. The following tests will be accepted as a certification of the required English level :
