Our various professional photography programs meet the expectations of photography students, professionals or passionate amateurs wishing to acquire or consolidate their knowledge. Admission requirements vary according to the program. Applications are open all year round and enrolment is subject to availability.
1. Application file
Fill in the Enrollment form and upload: a CV/resume and letter of motivation/statement of intent, a portfolio of 10-15 photos, a certified copy of Bachelor’s degree (for European Masters of Professional Photography only).
Students who aren’t native speakers of either English or French need to have a language level validated by an English or French language test at B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. The language requirement needs to be submitted at the beginning of the chosen program.
2. Application reviews
Spéos reviews applications and informs each student by e-mail as to the status of their application.
3. Down payment
Make the non-refundable down payment (€1,000 for EU students; €3,500 for international students), which reserves your place in the full-time program.
4. Payment of the tuition fees
Pay the first installment or the full tuition (full-time programs and workshops), necessary for obtaining a study visa in France. If the visa is not obtained, all the sums paid will be refunded. For successful candidates, enrollments become firm upon payment of the first installment (deposit) or the full amount of the tuition fees.

5. Student and campus contribution
Since the 1st July 2018, students who are definitely enrolled in higher education courses in France have to pay the “student and campus contribution” (CVEC: “contribution de vie étudiante et de campus”). The amount of €95 for 2022-2023 has to be paid directly on the CVEC payment portal of the French government. The first step in order to pay is to create a MesServices.etudiant.gouv.fr account.
