The Parcours Sirius study path

The Parcours Sirius study path is a year’s foundation course proposed to high school pupils in the Nantes urban area and the rural zones in the Pays de la Loire and Bretagne regions once they have obtained a vocational high school-leavers qualification*.

Among these school leavers with vocational qualifications, many enter the world of work, sometimes by default, fearing that they will not be able to pursue studies in higher education. This free one-year foundation course gives them the opportunity to consolidate their skills and regain self-confidence.

And what about afterwards? On completion of the Parcours Sirius study path, students will have the opportunity to join, at a lower cost, Audencia’s Bachelor in Management, a degree-level diploma requiring 3 years of higher education studies. These young people will be assessed on the same admission tests as all students, but their applications will be monitored and reviewed separately.

*Tertiary sector: commerce, sales, management and administration, logistics and reception.
