Cycle 2 : 4th year


For us this exam should not only be just an evaluation at an "M" moment.

It should also be educational and arouse curiosity. This is why we ask Cycle 1 candidates to carry out exercises based on an imposed theme. Several days are planned for this purpose and the tests must be sent to us digitally.


An entry exam is an opportunity to get to know the candidates better. To discover their motivation, aptitudes, state of mind, etc. The entry exam allows us to evaluate the candidates’ preparation and their suitability for our learning rhythms.


Candidate profile

Contrary to popular belief, there are no "typical profiles" or "ideal career paths".


Our professions are diverse and opened to all skills, both technical and artistic. The richness of collaboration is built through complementarity.


Everyone enters the school with their strengths and will have to progress on their weaknesses. A desire for versatility, a constant curiosity, and rigour in the work are the only really important criteria to be detected in the candidates.


Nevertheless a minimum preparation is necessary.

Is the candidate interested in our jobs, not as a spectator but with a real desire to integrate this professional environment? Has he or she already drawn, handled photography, etc.? Has he or she developed a general culture?



Missing an entry exam is not dramatic.

It is simply a sign of a lack of preparation.


Joining a "grande école" means embarking on a career that will last several decades. There's no point in running. It is better to prepare yourself properly to enter the school that will be the best springboard for the rest of your career.


There is no limit to passing our entry exam. A student who fails can easily retake the exam the following year. We will be happy to evaluate his or her progress.


There are different ways to improve your preparation, such as joining a preparatory class, taking drawing lessons in an association, participating in our art workshops, etc.

École des Nouvelles Images is a non-profit association of general interest. You can therefore rest assured that the school fees are exclusively intended for teaching, investment and the running of the school. We use state-of-the-art equipment to support our teaching and the production of the various exercises.


To help students who need it the most, École des Nouvelles Images has set up tuition grants, based on social criteria comparable to the CROUS grants.

This support results in a direct reduction in tuition fees for students in initial training.

An independent commission, supervised by parents, studies the candidates' files every year.

Our partner "AIRBUS Helicopter" participates with us in the financing of the tuition grants.

Since the creation of the school, this aid has represented approximately €100,000 per year.
