Eiffel Scholarship: What, How and When?

Have you ever dreamed of seeing the Eiffel Tower in Paris every day? Have you imagine yourself living or studying in France?

I’ve had a dream to live in either one of or all of the three big cities in the world: Paris, London and New York. But, coming from a modest family myself, I knew that it would certainly be impossible for me to realize the dream without a huge chunk of money in my bank. I kept my dream alive anyway, believing in what the famous writer, Paulo Coelho, once said, “When you want something, the entire universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”.Oddly enough, that one particular dream eventually did come true!!

The intention to experience living a Parisian dream, as sparkly as the lights shining from the Eiffel Tower, started when I visited Paris for the first time as a member of the Indonesian delegate for the G20 Youth Summit. Since then, I made a promise to myself to come to Paris again someday but not as a tourist or visitor, but as a (temporary) resident.

I finally came back to Paris, for the second time, as a student and an “official” Paris resident, as an awardee of the Eiffel Scholarship, from the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.

What is the Eiffel Excellence Scholarship?

The French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs launched the Eiffel Excellence Scholarship in January 1999 to support various institutes of higher education in French, in expanding their international outreach. In my humble opinion, the requirements of this scholarship are not complicated. This scholarship only requires submission of complete documents and no interview.

Some “basic” information about what the Eiffel Scholarship is all about:

1. Eligibility: you are only eligible to be awarded this scholarship if you are enrolled in a Master’s degree course or in colleges awarding an Engineering Science diploma or a PhD course as part of a jointly tutored or jointly supervised thesis with a foreign higher education’s partner. Therefore, the most important thing is that you should apply first to the Master’s or PhD programs at the French higher institutions that you desired for and get accepted prior to apply for the scholarship.

Eligibility for the areas of study covered by the Eiffel scholarship are:
• Engineering at a Master’s degree level, incl. of other sciences in a broader sense but only for PhD level (engineering and exact sciences such as mathematics, physics, chemistry and life sciences, nano- and bio-technology, earth and environmental sciences and information and communication sciences and technology);
• Economics and management;
• Law and political sciences.

Candidates must not be over 30 y.o. for a Master’s scholarship application or over 35 y.o. for a PhD scholarship. Applications from students from outside of France will be given a priority over those who are already studying in France. Thus, for those who are interested in studying in France, you can apply to the French higher education institutions first (Universities or Grandes Ecoles), then after being accepted, you can give it a shot to win this “one-shot” scholarship!

2. The Eiffel program is not applicable to holders of other French government grants or programs, or the receivers of grants from an organization financed wholly or partly by the French government or French territorial authorities, or welfare coverage grants. The candidates who are rejected on their previous selections cannot re-apply again for this scholarship; but this “ineligibility-case” applies only for Master’s degree programs. This is why I mentioned before that Eiffel Scholarship is a “one-shot” program.

Be very careful in preparing your documents for submission and to give the best effort you can because the selection process is based only on the documents that you have and there is no interview (meaning, you need to provide the selection committee with good documentation to convince them). Also, if you failed there will be no chance for applying next year and the selection process is based only on those documents, with no such thing as an interview process.

3. Applications for this scholarship are to be submitted by the French institutions for higher education (the Universities or Grand Ecoles), but NOT by the students. Therefore, it is absolutely important that when you apply to a university, that you try your best to ensure your documents look “attractive” so that the university would choose you to become a scholarship candidate. Also when you apply to a university, do not forget to give notification you are interest in applying for the Eiffel Scholarship after being accepted to the Master’s or PhD degree programs.

In my case, after I was accepted in my program, the admission officer liaised me with the international cooperation officer who was in-charge for the Eiffel Scholarship. The officer then provided me with the information on the scholarship’s selection procedure and the application form, all of these should be sent back to that admission officer. The same officer was the one who sent my documents to the Eiffel Scholarship Committee.

4. The Eiffel Scholarship (except for preparatory course in French, if applicable) program does not cover tuition fees, though the universities concerned are invited to apply for the best possible financial conditions for the Eiffel scholarship-holders. While the enrolment fees at state-run higher education centers are waived for students on French government scholarship programs, the tuition fee is not waived. However, tuition fees for public universities or Grandes Ecoles in France are significantly lower than any other schools in USA, UK or Australia, for example. Annual tuition rates at public institutions are set by law. The rates for the 2012-2013 academic years are €250 for master’s programs and €380 for doctoral program.

For master’s courses, Eiffel scholarship-holders will receive a monthly allowance of EUR 1,181. In addition, the program meets various expenses including return travel, health insurance and cultural activities. Scholarship-holders might also be eligible for additional accommodation allowance. For PhD courses, Eiffel scholarship-holders will receive a monthly allowance of EUR 1,400. In addition, the program meets various expenses including one return trip (single return trip for law and political science students on multiple stays), health insurance and cultural activities. Scholarship-holders might also be eligible for additional accommodation allowance.

Please make a careful calculation here. If you go to private schools with higher tuition fees, of course this scholarship is not enough. But if study in a public school, with the Eiffel scholarships, you will have more than enough!

5. The Eiffel Scholarship only offers opportunities in three areas: science; economics & management; and law & political science. Students targeting careers in education or research should opt for other type of scholarships. The aim of the scholarship is to create future executives or leaders – in their own countries. In your application, you may want to argue that your goal in career is to be an executive, in private or public sector (banks, administration, consulting, international organizations, etc.). Find a way of explaining that your study will provide you with the tool needed to advance your career in your own country.

6. Schedule for the 2013 Eiffel program is as follows:
• Submission of online applications: September 26th, 2012
• Deadline for the receipt of applications by Campus France : January 9th, 2013
• Announcement of results: Week of March 18th, 2013

Results are usually published in March to enable prospective students to give full consideration along with any other offers that they might have; the best students often have competing proposals (including offers on the funding of their studies) from other countries.

For 2014’s applications, you should be able to download the application form since September 2013 then the application will be closed in January 2014 and the results will be announced in March 2014.

Look carefully at the deadlines of applications for each University and Grandes Ecoles. Each educational institution in France has different deadline. It is usually around late November to late December. Each university also needs a proper time in preparing all documents prior to sending the applications to the Eiffel Scholarship’s Committee.

How to prepare documents to apply for the Eiffel Scholarship?

My case was a 2012 scholarship application (if you want, I can also provide you with my documents, just let me know). Read the application form carefully. Since it is only available in French, If you do not understand French at all, you will need to be creative, try using Google Translate or asking the campus-france staff or your friend who can speak French.

In 2012, there were 15 pages in the application form for Master’s degre and 14 pages for Doctoral programs. All of the important information to fill-out the form and to prepare for the document is stated on page 1-6. Since information on page 1-4 can be easily found on the campus-france website, I will only further explain the details of pages 5 and 6:

Pour les deux niveaux (MASTER ET DOCTORAT)
• Le curriculum vitae du (de la) candidat(e), rédige en français ou en anglais, sur une ou deux pages précisant les performances du candidat (mention, rang de classement, nombre d’étudiants de la promotion. Devront figurer les diplômes avec indication de la spécialité, de la date d’obtention, des mentions et/ou des notes finales).
• Le projet professionnel du (de la) candidat(e), rédige en français ou en anglais, sur une ou deux pages. Ce projet doit être structure et ne pas être une simple lettre de motivation.
• Un exemplaire de la charte de qualité, signée par le Chef d’établissement et comportant le cachet de l’établissement.
• Un document synthétique (1 à 2 pages) sur la politique internationale de l’établissement. Ce document devra préciser l’adéquation entre cette politique et le projet du candidat présenté.
• Pour le niveau MASTER uniquement : Les revelés de notes des trois dernières années faisant référence à un parcours académique aussi bien en France qu’a l’étranger.
• Pour le DOCTORAT uniquement : la convention de co-tutelle ou une attestation de co-direction signée par les parties françaises et étrangères.

Below are my interpretations of the above sentences:

• Curriculum vitae (CV) is written in French or English in one or two pages, which should highlight the quality of the candidates, such as the candidate’s ranking in his/her your program, the number of graduates in the class, specialization, starting and completion date of the candidate’s program, among others.
• Professional project is written in French or English in one or two pages. This is DIFFERENT from Motivation Letter. For this document, you will need to elaborate your academic background, professional experience, your motivation in pursuing Masters/ PhD degree, your future career, your contribution to your own country, etc.
• Basically, you are only required to provide three documents (CV, professional project and completed the application form). Thus, it is only three important documents you will submit (excluding the passport, academic transcript and graduate certificate).

However, depending on their own internal procedures, some universities may also require you to provide them with more documents in addition to the basic ones.

(i) Eiffel Scholarship Application Form
You only need to fill out pages 7, 8, 9 as the other pages will be completed by the university that you apply for. What are the contents of those pages?

Page 7 is about your personal data:
• Name of the university who are enrolled for applying Eiffel scholarships (Nom de l’établissement présentant la candidature 2009/2010)
• Family name (NOM)
• First name (prenom)
• Nationality (Nationalité)
• Date of Birth (Date de naissance)
• Gender (sexe)
• Field of study (science d’Ingénieur, economie-gestion, droit-sciences Politiques)
• The current position (à l’Etranger, en France)
• Are currently receiving a scholarship? (bénéficiat-it (elle) d’une bourse)
• Scholarship recipients France? (bourse du Gouvernement français / BGF)
• Address in the country of origin, if the candidate is still in the country of origin (Adresse permanente dans le pays d’origine, phone / telephone, fax / télécopie, email / Mel)
• Address in France, if the candidate is in France (phone / telephone, fax / télécopie, email / Mel)

Page 8 is about the candidate’s educational history:
• Name of the university (Nom de l’établissement)
• Place (Domain d’études); please write down the name of the town where your college bachelor / master / doctorate
• Degree (Nom du Diplôme); this as bachelor of engineering, bachelor of social, etc .
• Date to learn, months – years (Dates – mois et année)
• Records of achievement, such as a special achievement, class rank, etc., which can also be described in the CV (Date d’obtention – notes, mention, rang de classement) -> write a simple one, if you want detail you can write in your CV later on. For example, best of 5% graduates.

Page 9 is about the candidate’s professional experiences, such as:
• Name of the work place (Nom de l’employeur) -> just writes the name of the company / institution where you work for.
• Type of work (Secteur d’activité); please write as the public sector, private sectors, writers, etc.
• Description of work (fonction occupée); please write down what you do and what your responsibility in your office.
• Date (Date – de … à ….); this is when you start working and how long is your work?

Voila! That’s all for the application form and it is only 3 pages!

(ii) Curriculum Vitae
You can write your CV or resumé either in French or English. Please remember to write a maximum of two pages. There is no need to write more than two pages. When I applied this scholarship, I write all my documents in French (Application form, CV and Professional Project). I thought, when I wrote my documents in French, the scholarship committee will be impressed and put me as one of short list candidate. Maybe you also know that the French are very proud of their language and will appreciate your effort in using their language when you are communicating with them.

(iii) Professional Project
In my opinion, this is the most important part of your scholarship documents because this document will enable the scholarship committee to see how qualified you are and what are you going to do after completion of your study in France. Make sure to keep it simple, concise and well structured. Write for a maximum of two pages, either in English or French. Although writing in French might increase your chance to be short-listed, for the reason mentioned above.

It is also always good to have someone else do a proofreading for you, especially if you would like to write it in French. Get a French native speaker to proofread it.

A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work – Collin Powell. So, there’s no way to can be success without hard work! Hope this writing inspires and helps you to get a better future. Amiiinn! Merci et bon courage! ☺

Note: some part of this writings inspired by Arip Muttaqin (2009’s Eiffel Scholarship Awardee).

  2. hello Mr.Sofwan Thank you for the very complete and helpful information, Eiffel Scholarship is one of my favorite scholarships I want to apply for since 2012, and your major is the same major as I want to take, (Applied Economics) I saw on the website of Pantheon Sorbonne 1 that the requirement for M1 is the candidate must have DALF C1?is it possible, I’ve just got my DELF B1 and will take DELF B2 in November 2013. If you don’t mind, may I have your application form?
    Merci beaucoup^_^
    Widya

  3. Hi Mr.Sofwan, thank you so much for this information. I take the same major as you, economic. And studying in Phanteon Sorbonne has been my dream for a long time^^. Could you please send me your application form too? You can send it to: arjuni.rahmi@yahoo.co.id
    Merci :)

  4. Hello Mr. Sofwan! Thank you for sharing this helpful information :) I have 3 questions:
    1. When you applied for this scholarship, were you already employed?
    2. Since the tuition fee is not covered by this scholarship, how do you cover this expense? Do you do part-time job?
    3. Can I also have your past application form? If you don’t mind, please kindly send it to elizabethrosalinagultom@gmail.com.
    Thank you for your help 😀

    • Hi Elizabeth!
      Thanks for your questions.

      1. Yes, I was working at Bappenas when I applied this scholarship.

      2. The tuition fee is not expensive, only 1000 euro, equivalent around 12,5 million rupiah, so I can get it from my saving.

      3. Yes, I will send you the form.

      Best,

      Sofwan.

    • Sorry for late reply, just got back home from vacation and stranded in north philippines due to the tropical storm. kindly check your inbox now.

  5. Mas, apakah surat2 (resume, CV, motivation letter) yang kita kirim utk apply ke fakultas itu surat yang sama yang akan diajukan mereka utk apply beasiswa eiffel, atau buat yg baru? thanks

    • Halo Rizky!

      Pasti beda, karena yang saya kirim untuk beasiswa Eiffel semua dalam bahasa perancis sedangkan untuk Univ/Fakultas bahasa inggris. Untuk aplikasi Eiffel juga tidak ada motivation letter yang ada projet professionnel (professional project), format CV yang digunakan juga berbeda.

      Semoga menjawab pertanyaannya.

      Best,
      Sofwan.

        • Iya melalui universitas juga, student sama sekali tidak berhubungan dengan Eiffel committee, hanya pihak universitas yang melakukan korespondensi.

      • Mas Hakim, kebetulan sekali. Saya sudah diterima jadi kandidat salah satu universitas. Yang anehnya, ngga seperti mas, saya ngga ada diminta buat personal project. Saya hanya mengirim keperluan admisi ke kampus seperti CV dan motivation letter (keduanya bahasa Inggris). Nah ketika saya tanyakan aplikasi utk eiffel (personal project maupun CV) dia mengatakan sudah mengirimkan data2 tersebut ke jury eiffel. Sebagai pengganti personal project, dia kirim motivation letter saya yg dlm bahasa Inggris tsb. Nah gimana menurut mas?

        • Hi!

          Apakah kamu sudah mengisi form Eiffel? setahu saya pihak campus memerlukan form yang diisi oleh pelamar pada bagian tertentu, kalau belum sebaiknya tanyakan kembali ke pihak kampus.

          Sebenernya professional project dan motivation letter sangat mirip, namun kalau dilihat lebih detail lagi ada beberapa hal yang lebih ditekankan di professional project.

          Saya kurang tahu kalau kasusnya sepertinya, tapi baiknya kamu tanyakan lagi, apakah sudah benar-benar dikirim? Kalaupun sudah, tanyakan lagi, syaratnya sudah lengkap semua atau bagaimana?

          Baiknya juga kamu pastikan semuanya sebelum tanggal 21 Dec, karena setelah itu hampir seluruh kampus di Perancis (termasuk pihak administrasi) akan libur sampai dengan 6 Januari 2014.

  6. Hello everybody…. Im Eti,20 years old so grateful can finding this web,really have a lot of information..Nice to meet you all. Now im studying at Nurtanio University at Bandung Major Economic Managemen semester 4 ,but someday InsyaAllah i had a mind to continue Master Management at else country..so i need much information to make it happen, keep in touch :) And thank you so much for these helpful information Mr.Sofwan..

  7. Artikel yang menarik, walau gak sepenuhnya “ngeh” terkait detail
    beasiswa krn dlm bhs inggris. Ada beberapa hal yang ingin saya tanyakan:

    1. Apakah Eiffel ini tidak meng-cover seluruh biaya pendidikan kita? Atau seperti apa?

    2. Apakah beasiswa ini ditujukan hanya bagi calon mahasiswa master yang melakukan penelitian? Bagi yang non-reasearch bisa gak?

    3. Boleh minta kirim dokumen aplikasi anda ke fitraferdi@gmail.com.Terima Kasih.

    • Hi Ferdi Fitra!



      Terima kasih atas pertanyaannya.
Berikut jawaban dari pertanyaan tersebut:



      1. Seperti yang telah saya sebutkan di artikel saya:
”The Eiffel Scholarship (except for preparatory course in French, if applicable) program does not cover tuition fees” Apabila biaya pendidikan yang dimaksud adalah tuition fees, maka beasiswa ini tidak meng-cover tuition fees.

      Namun, hal ini bisa bisa diantisipasi dengan memilih universitas publik yang reputasinya baik, dan pemerintah perancis memberikan subsidi yang sangat besar untuk sektor pendidikan, sehingga tuition fees sangat rendah. Untuk tahun kedua ini saya hanya membayar tuition fee 5 euro saja (kira-kira setara dengan 70 ribu rupiah) untuk satu tahun.



      Biaya yang akan dicover antara lain: monthly allowance, flight for return trip, insurance and other cultural/ training activities.



      2. Saya sudah menyebutkan sasaran dari beasiswa ini di artikel saya: “The aim of the scholarship is to create future executives or leaders – in their own countries. In your application, you may want to argue that your goal in career is to be an executive, in private or public sector (banks, administration, consulting, international organizations, etc.). Students targeting careers in education or research should opt for other type of scholarships.”

      Jadi intinya justru beasiswa ini ditujukan untuk mahasiswa yang domainnya bukan riset atau dosen tetapi professional domain.

      3. Tentu, saya akan kirimkan.

      Semoga menjawab pertanyaannya.

      Terima kasih,
      Sofwan.

      • Terima kasih mas, jadi lebih jelas.
        Tapi awalnya agak bingung juga, kalo saya baca2, Tuition fees di negara2 eropa sebesar ribuan euro setahun. Ternyata khusus di prancis, TF sekitaran 100++ euro pertahun.
        Oh ya, dulu belajar bahasa prancis dimana? Sekarang saya tinggal di Jkt pusat.

        Btw, terima kasih atas dokumen yang telah anda kirim.

        • Halo! Saya dulu belajar bahasa perancis di IFI Salemba. Belajarnya cuma 5 jam sehari di hari Sabtu, krn kalau hari kerja nggak sempet.

          Iya, sama-sama, semoga membantu.

  8. Mas, sebelumnya terima kasih karena telah sharing. Saya ingin tanya kemarin mas pakai TOEFL apa ya dan score nya berapa? Saya kebetulan pakai PBT dan score minimum yg diminta minimal 600, sementara score saya sedikit lagi. Apakah mas pernah mendengar pengalaman “nego” nilai TOEFL kalau kurang kah? (mungkin dari rekan2 lain). Saya ragu menanyakannya karena mungkin masuk ke penilaian mereka nantinya, karena yg menentukan kandidat eiffel univ nya kan? CMIIW

    • Pada saat apply univ di perancis, saya gunakan IELTS. Kalau untuk TOEFL harus yang sudah internasional, seperti IBT. Saya juga lengkapi dengan sertifikat kemampuan berbahasa perancis (DELF), walaupun bahasa pengantarnya bahasa inggris, ada baiknya kamu sertakan juga DELF.

      Seperti yang telah saya sampaikan di artikel saya:

      “give the best effort you can because the selection process is based only on the documents that you have and there is no interview (meaning, you need to provide the selection committee with good documentation to convince them). Also, if you failed there will be no chance for applying next year”

      Beasiswa ini sifatnya “one shoot” scholarship, apabila kamu gagal sekali, maka tidak ada kesempatan lagi untuk apply beasiswa ini.

      So, give your best effort!!

      Best,
      Sofwan.

      • Wah makasih Mas, jadi semangat lagi heheh…

        Kalau boleh tanya lagi, salah satu point yg tertulis yaitu “Students currently studying abroad are given priority over those already residing in France.”

        Menurut Mas ‘abroad’ ini ‘di luar negara Prancis’ atau ‘di luar negara asal pelamar’?

        Thanks!!

        • Itu maksudnya, mahasiswa yang tinggal luar perancis, bisa di dalam negara pelamar atau di luar negara asal pelamar. Untuk angkatan saya yg diterima melalui Eiffel Scholarship, semua S1nya dari perguruan tinggi di Indonesia.

  9. that’s a nice job you did there @sofwan hakim. :disqus
    just bookmarked this page and followed you on twitter :) … je vais avoir besoin de ton aide durant tout ces procedures, i’m thinking of applying for the scholarship this year. tu peux m’envoyer les documents s’il vous plait. mon email c’est 933kss@gmail.com

  10. hi sofwan hakim,
    could you please send me your documents?
    i have some queries-
    1) I am doing my phd in an asian university. Can i apply for the doctorate scholarship?
    2) Could you guide me through the steps i need to do to apply for the doctoral scholarship of Eiffel?
    Regards.

    • Hi!

      1. The doctorate scholarship only for doctorate student in French universities, so you have to be enrolled as a doctorate student in French universities.

      2. Like the master degree, first you have to be enrolled in French university then apply the Eiffel scholarship.

      Hope this helps.

      Best,
      Sofwan.

  18. Hi sofwan. I am finishing my application to the Eiffel scholarship and I think that your documents could be very useful for. Also, I see that your subject of study is very similar to the one I am trying to pursue. What was the exact program you study at Sorbonne?
    My email is x_playo@hotmail.com
    Thanks in advance.

  19. Hello Sofwan,

    Your explanation above is
    really helpful and I just realized that I have to prepare my professional project in order to apply for the Eiffel scholarship.

    Could you provide me a sample of what it should be? I would be very grateful. My email is gabrielabaraldi(@)hotmail.com. Thank you very much.

    Regards,

    Gabriela

  20. Hello Sofwan. It is really helpful to read such good articles as your. I look forward to study PSME at Paris 1 which is in English the first year, and before reading your doc I was thinking to write it in English since I just have a basic knowledge of French. But, now I am quite confused. Any suggestion?

    Warm regards,

    Diego Avila

    • Hi Diego,

      Yes, I am also in PSME program, in my case I use this strategy:
      For PSME application I use english, because the teaching language is in english. However, for the Eiffel scholarship documents I use french, because it will increase my opportunity to get a scholarship and the committee is french peoples, so it would be better for me to write in french.

      Hope this helps. If you have any further questions just contact me by email: hakim.sofwan@gmail.com.

      Best,
      Sofwan.

  21. Bonjour Sofwan,
    Je suis intéréssé à votre article. Cela me pense à étudier en Fr. Pouvez-vous m’envoyer votre application et proffesional projet à efsapz13@gmail.com? Ce sera une grande aide pour ma préparation. Merci bcp.
    Amicalement,
    Efsa

  22. Hi Sofwan,
    Thank you for your article! I found it extremely helpful. i was wondering if you could also send me your application and professional project to anaduran0908@gmail.com? It will help me a lot to prepare!

    Thank you in advance!

    Best,
    Ana

  23. Hey Sofwan

    I need some information regarding the professional project section. I am writing the letter in english as I dont know enough french to write a letter. Would it be wise to get it professionally translated to french?

    How did you go about it?

    • Yes, it would be nice if you write it in French, cause all selection committees are french and they really welcome foreigner who can speak french so it will increase also your chance to get the scholarship.

      I already learned french for 1 year before applying this scholarship, so I can manage to write it in french, although I need also twice proofreaders, one from my teacher at IFI and one from my friend who’s a french native speaker.

      Hope this helps.
      Sofwan.

  24. Hi Sofwan,

    Your article really helped me alot. I have to submit my professional project for the scholarship by tomorrow i.e. 13th Dec 2013. So i am kind of in panic mode. I would be really grateful if you can share with me your doc application as well as scholarship package. I just received a mail from the university I applied to that I had missed this document. Heard about it for the first time today. My email ID is angelkharya@gmail.com

    I hope you check this soon.

    Thanks a ton
    Angel

  25. Hi Sofwam,

    Thank you for your article and for your guidelines. Could you send me, please, the professional project and the eiffel scholarship package (the CV in French, to see the structure). You would do me a HUGE favor !! Thanks a million

  26. Hi Sofwam,
    Thank you for your guidelines. Could please send me your professional project and CV. I have to submit my application before 16th Dec, but I am not confident in mine. Although my French is so poor, I hope I can learn something from your eiffel scholarship package. Many thanks,

  27. Hi Sofwan,
    Thanks for the article, it really is a nice one! My name is Valya and I’m currently a first semester student at Math. I’m interested on some scholarship (and also internship offer, actually) and as we all know most of them ask for our CV. The thing is, I never write a CV before. so I’d be really thankful if I can get an example of your CV. Scholarship packages would be nice too! hehe thanks ^^ here’s my email: valyanurfadila@gmail.com

  28. Hello,
    its really great help for new applicant,I was searching from long time but didn’t get anything reliable but its really great post.I need little clarification about the result.I sent you an email,please check your mailbox.I ll be very happy if you have time to reply me.thanks

  29. Hi Sofwan :) This is teh Riri, KPA ITB. Nice meeting you here…
    Is TOEFL or IELTS needed for this application? Would you send me the documents to my email? Nuhun :)

    • Halo Teh Riri!

      I’m sorry for late reply..
      For my university, they accept both IELTS or TOEFL for admission process. For Eiffel scholarship application, they didn’t ask it because we need to get an LoA first from Univ, meaning that we do have the IELTS or TOEFL.

      Email nya apa teh? nanti saya kirim.

      Hope this helps.

      Sofwan.

  30. Kak Sofwan, boleh kah aku minta dikirimkan jg dokumen punya kakak? Oya Kak, katanya kl mau kuliah di Perancis harus bisa bahasa Perancis dulu ya? Bener ga?
