How to apply?

Important: if you come from one of those countries, the procedure described below does not concern you. You should apply from the Campus France website and not through the eCandidat website. For all other applicants, the following procedure applies.

You will have to fill out an application form on the eCandidat online plateform which allows the teaching staff to verify that your academic level is sufficient and that your previous curriculum and your professional project are in line with our training.

Each major has a specific application form and for each major a specific list of documents must be provided. So be careful to choose the appropriate major. The list of documents to provide usually includes the following:

  • Photocopy of the last diploma(s) (bachelor’s degree or equivalent)
  • Photocopies of undergrad records/transcripts of grades
  • Photocopy of the last program of studies
  • A detailed curriculum vitae
  • Letters of recommendation and/or assessment forms

For the GEEL, GGL and MANE majors, filling an application is only the first step in the selection process. In case of eligibility, you will be formally invited to an interview at La Rochelle University. If your application is successful and you validate the first year of the master’s program, you will be automatically accepted for the second year.

Criteria considered for the evaluation of applications

The criteria presented below are only indications of the elements that the members of the admissions juries examine. This list is not exhaustive, and the order of the items does not represent the order of importance of the elements allowing the overall quality of the applications to be judged.

  • maturity of the application
  • previous work experience or internships
  • academic results
  • match between previous training and our master’s degree
  • match between the professional project of the candidate and our master’s degree
  • quality of the cover letter
  • quality of letters of recommendation
  • involvement (for example associative) attesting to a personal dynamic of the candidates
  • interest for international exchanges
  • knowledge of our teaching curriculum


The 2023 schedule for applications is presented below.

Application phase

For all 4 majors, applications must be submitted on the national “Mon Master”” platform between Wednesday, March 22, 2023 and Tuesday, April 18, 2023.

Eligibility examination phase

For all 4 majors, applications will be reviewed between Monday, April 24 and Friday, June 16.

Individual interview phase

For the GEEL, GGL, and MANE majors, eligible candidates will be invited for an individual interview that will take place before Friday, June 16:

  • For the GGL major, interviews will take place between Monday, May 1 and Friday, June 9.
  • For the MANE major, interviews will take place between Wednesday, May 24 and Wednesday, June 7.
  • For the GEEL major, interviews will take place between Wednesday, June 7 and Friday, June 9.

Admission phase

The admission phase will run from Friday, June 23 to Friday, July 21, and will take place exclusively on the national “Mon Master”” platform.

Starting June 23, for each of your applications, you will receive one of the following 3 possible responses:

  1. Accepted application
  2. Application on hold
  3. Rejected application

For each accepted application (case 1 above), you will need to respond very quickly:

  • For admission proposals received on June 23 and 24, you must respond by June 26 at 11:59 PM at the latest.
  • For admission proposals received between June 25 and July 20, you must respond by the following evening at 11:59 PM.

You will have 3 possible answers for each admission proposal:

  1. Definite acceptance: you accept the proposal. This acceptance is final, which means that you are automatically withdrawn from all other applications you have submitted on the Mon Master platform. You must then quickly complete your administrative registration in order to not lose your place: by July 20, 2023 at the latest for La Rochelle University.
  2. Definite refusal: you decline the proposal. This refusal is final and your place is therefore automatically released and offered to candidates on the waiting list.
  3. Conditional acceptance (“yes, if…”): you reserve the offered placement in a master’s program as long as you are not offered a placement in a master’s program that you prefer. If you receive other admission proposals that you prefer, you can move this “yes, if” as many times as you like. But be careful: you only have one active “yes, if” at any given time. Moving your “yes, if” from master’s program “A” to master’s program “B” means that you are definitively withdrawing from master’s program “A”. Finally, your “yes if” automatically becomes a definite acceptance on July 21.

It is therefore essential that the order of your priorities is clear right now because you will have very little time to respond to the admission proposals that will be made to you starting on June 23.
