Undergraduate Fashion Design & Creation Program

Certificate from France’s National Commission for Professional Certificates (CNCP) for fashion design curriculums.

The CNCP (http://www.cncp.gouv.fr/site/cncp/lang/fr/Accueil35701 ) is an interministerial commission which examines and evaluates trainings offered by professional schools.

The Undergraduate Fashion Design & Creation curriculum is part of the L.M.D. (Bachelor-Master-Doctoral) system which unifies European higher learning institutions and establishes diploma equivalencies that facilitate mobility and the continuation of studies. It is accompanied by a system of accumulated study credits known as ECTS (http://ec.europa.eu/education/lifelong-learning-policy/ects_en.htm)

1° The Undergarduate Program fashion Design & Creation curriculum lets students earn a diploma from the school that is recognized and accepted by professionals

2° After validation of his or her internship report (a 3-month minimum stay in a company) the student receives the title of “Fashion Designer”, acknowledged by the CNCP and registered as a Professional Certificate in a decree published in the JORF (Official Journal of the French Republic) on April 10, 2010, Level II.

According to the professional titles of 1969 (http://www.ciep.fr/enic-naricfr/attestation.php) which are currently in effect, Level II corresponds to competence for a bachelor or masters degree. It defines those employees holding jobs which usually require training at a level comparable to a bachelors or masters degree (in the operational context).
