What is a short programme?

Understand what a short course is to best target the skills to be acquired.

Short programme, definition

Short programmes correspond to specific training needs in relation to the skills to be acquired. There are many advantages:

  • Short courses are less expensive than long courses;
  • The courses are open to both working people and job seekers and the self-employed;
  • The short duration of the training makes it easier to plan;
  • Short courses are a real added value on a CV and help to maintain its attractiveness to current and future employers.

How to choose a short programme?

Several more or less objective criteria come into play to help you evaluate the different courses. Recruiters will mainly be interested in state recognition, which school delivers the degree and whether it is part of a group or network of schools with an excellent reputation. You can also look at the indicators of success and professional integration, the average first salary of graduates, etc. These criteria, combined, provide a relevant evaluation grid for making the right choice.

How to get into a short programme?

In order to enrol in a course at our Institut Sup de Luxe, you must have at least 3 years of higher education and a B2 level of English.
