Registering an application
The organization of UTC training on a semester basis allows for two possible admission dates, one in February and one in September.
Applications for the specialties can be submitted on the website https://www.groupe-ut.fr/
Applications for the common engineering core programme are to be submitted :
- via the website https://www.parcoursup.fr for the September admission;
- via the website https://www.groupe-ut.fr/ for the beginning of the academic year in February.
Recruitment procedure at the UTC
Students are admitted on the basis of their academic record and a motivation interview.
The procedure is common to all three universities of technology: the application is filled out online only, for both French and foreign candidates.
Depending on your profile, you will be called in for a group interview or an individual interview to assess your motivation. In both cases, you will be invited for a half-day interview (8.45 a.m./12 p.m. or 1.45 p.m./5 p.m., depending on the candidate order list ).
- If you are a foreign candidate (Bac+2 and above), you must register on the website www.campusfrance.org to obtain your file number before submitting your application.
- If you are already studying abroad, you will be exempted from the interview. A good knowledge of the French language is necessary.
Contact the French Embassy for information on studying in France. The UTC does not give scholarships, so you will have to prove to the French Embassy that you have sufficient income to stay in France.
The application fee rate for the admission of students for the preparation of the engineering degree is set at 105 euros (in accordance with the French Government decree dated February 26, 2021 setting application fees).
Payment is secure and can be made online, by cheque, money order, international money order or bank transfer (excluding Western Union money orders).
Candidates with French government scholarships do not pay these fees, after sending a proof to the following address:

Applying for the core curriculum
For its engineering degree, UTC-Compiegne recruits at various levels, from the Bac S to Bac + 4. The previous years of study can be validated via ECTS credits.
Applications are made via the Government HE website https://www.parcoursup.fr.
Admission requirements for the common core at UTC
- to hold a French Bac
- duration of studies: 5 years
- admission is based on an application file and a group interview
- to hold a French Bac + one year of scientific and technical studies validated and recognized by UTC (L1, math sup, PCEM1)
- Duration of studies: Depending on the course, equivalences may be granted, under certain conditions
Registration calendar for the common core programme at UTC

Applying for the Hutech programme
Applications are made via Parcoursup.
The UTC Humanities and Technology programme is open to baccalaureate holders.
Candidates who also apply for the common core do not pay any additional registration fees.
The results are published on the Parcoursup website.
Selection on the basis of applications and interviews
An admissibility phase is organized: an ad hoc committee identifies a certain number of relevant applications from the academic (school/lycée) file, the letter of motivation and the applicants’ CVs. They are then called in for 2 interviews (in groups and individually with a lecturer of the HuTech course).
Admission invitations will be issued in April for the UTC Hu-Tech programme.
For the HuTech interview in particular, some preparation is required, so that the interview can relate partly to knowledge content, and partly to applicants personalities.
The preparatory work, explained in this document, consists of
- Reading a text representative of the key contents of HuTech – in epistemology / history of techniques concerning one of the targeted engineering fields: biology, computer science or urban planning;
- Identify in the news (via an article or extract from a book) a technological topic which, on the one hand, illustrates the challenges of associating human sciences and engineering, and, on the other hand, concerns the candidate, interests him/her and could constitute a field of action at a later stage (at this stage: a mere projection). This article must be brought to the interview and its commentary will be a main element of the interview.
Applying for an engineering specialty
The conditions for admission to the specialty courses
- Hold a Bac +2 (DUT, BTS, Licence, L2 (scientific) validated, CPGE)
- duration of studies: 3 years
- Admission is based on applications and individual interviews (except for candidates from CPGE classes: group interview).
- hold a validated degree L3 in the field of the chosen engineering course, i.e., with up to 30 ECTS possible
- duration of studies: 2.5 years (subject to obtaining credits compatible with our curriculum)
- admission is based on the academic file (lycée …) and an individual interview
- Hold a validated Master’s degree level M1 or higher in the field of the chosen engineering course, and the validation of an internship in the industrial field of at least 20 weeks, i.e., with up to 60 ECTS possible
- duration of studies: 2 years
- admission is based on the academic file (lycée …) and an individual interview.

Applying foe a UTC apprenticeship programme
Choosing training via an apprenticeship
The admissions pplication process is the same as for candidates on a 'conventional' course. However, there is no February session start date for apprenticeship candidates.
UTC proposes the training by apprenticeship for the mechanical and computer science specialties of its engineering diploma.
- January – April: registration period for applications on the UTC website (same admission process as for other engineering students)
- February: reception of the first offers from partner companies
- Mid-April: first apprenticeship jury followed by training in finding a contract (writing a CV, cover letter and preparing for interviews)
- Mid-May: second apprenticeship panel followed by contract search training (CV writing, cover letter and interview preparation)
- June – August: recruitment interviews and signing of contracts (48 apprentices per class)
- Beginning of September: start of the UTC school year
Before any contract is signed, a personal contact is established in order to validate the adequacy between training and the expectations of the company (HR and future apprenticeship supervisor).
