It enables students who so desire to rapidly acquire a professional qualification that suits clearly identified needs and professions. They are divided into 46 national denominations from the primary, secondary and tertiary sectors. The licence professionnelle' takes one year (or two semesters) of study.
The course is open to students from diverse backgrounds and leads students from different study routes towards the same qualifications.
Those with a BTS or DUT may in this way obtain a higher level of qualification by extending their previous studies, and those with a DEUG may quickly obtain a qualification that will facilitate their entry into the labour market.
The 'licence professionnelle' course includes theoretical and practical teaching, learning about methods and tools, as well as periods of training in a professional environment, in particular during a 12-16 week work placement and via a project tutored either individually or in a group.
