The GBD London Programe is open to students with a (French) section S or ES Baccalaureate, high academic standing and an excellent level of proficiency in written and spoken English.
Particular consideration is given to applicants who have completed their secondary education at a Lycée Français de l'étranger (LFE). The programme also welcomes candidates
with an International Baccalaureate (other than the French Baccalaureate) and candidates who have an exceptionally international academic background.
Because GBD London is a French University programme operating on UK soil, only students who are citizens of an EU member country may apply to the programme.
All applicants who are accepted to the London programme are automatically withdrawn from the Paris campus selection process. Students who are not selected for the GBD London programme automatically continue the Paris campus application process. Successful GBD London candidates commit to the full two years of the program, i.e. both the 1st and 2nd year of the Bachelor's in Economics & Management. NO transfers from GBD London to Dauphine Paris are permitted during years 1 and 2 of the programme.
The CEJ (Law Certificate) is not available in London.
