  • Interview (30 minutes) with the programme director or their representative.  Part of the interview will be conducted in English in order to test the candidate’s level. 

Non-French speaking overseas candidates will also be required to demonstrate they have a B2 level in French (TCF/DELF test score).

ELITE ATHLETES & PERFORMANCE ARTISTS

ICD offers special study arrangements for elite athletes and performance artists.  Each case being specific, we examine individual needs separately together with the athlete or artist concerned.
Special study arrangements generally include:

  • The possibility of staggering the period of study over time,
  • Making available an academic coach to supervise the student’s progress on the course,
  • Support from a nominated student-tutor, who takes notes in the case of the elite student being absent and relays important information about work or assignments to be done, etc.
  • The possibility of sports scholarships based on performance criteria

 

SUPPORT FOR DISABLED STUDENTS

ICD works closely with HAND’IGS, Groupe IGS’ disabled student help unit to facilitate the enrolment of students with disabilities.
The need for support and adjustments is examined on a case to case basis.  Additionally, as part of the ERASMUS charter, ICD gives special attention to encouraging the international mobility of disabled students.

The school offers us the opportunity to discover new international markets thanks to the different semesters we spend abroad.  From January to May 2018, I chose to do the Intercultural Management Semester (SMI).  It was a really worthwhile experience, which involved us exploring different kinds of business such as the American, Chinese or Vietnamese markets, whilst at the same time discovering the culture of these countries.  In addition, it was also a great opportunity for us to develop our international professional network and launch our graduate careers by being able to contact some of the leading business figures.
