Criteria for the recognition of the real Bachelor

Three parameters allow today to identify a real Bachelor:

  • the RNCP certification [Répertoire National de Certification Professionnelle] delivered by France Compétence. It aims to ensure the acquisition of technical skills;
  • the license visa. This is a quality label granted by the Ministry of Higher Education. It is valid for a maximum of six years. This document attests to the good academic level for the pursuit of the master’s degree in a grande école;
  • The Bachelor’s degree for Bachelors, applicable since last year. This precious title has been granted to a few dozen grandes écoles. It is awarded according to the quality of the teaching, the partnership network and the number of teachers or researchers. Note that Bachelors are entitled to Crous scholarships.
