Application (M1)

Each student applying to the graduate program AStroParis is required to present a research & education project. Majors and tracks must be selected accordingly. Before being validated, the relevance and coherence of the project are tested by the teaching team of AStroParis and modulations can be proposed.

Recruiting standard

Selection for the graduate program is made on the basis of
- Quality and feasibility of the proposal.
- Academic or professional record.
- Personal qualifications.
- Relevance and consistency of the research project.
- For non-native English speakers : B2 level in English, at least.

Applicants should pay attention to
- the adequacy of the previous trainings to the requirements of the proposed training,
