    The Pitch


    I don’t speak any French. Is that a problem?


    I haven’t studied HR before. Do I need to have some management experience before?


    Do you focus on HR within a particular type of company? I want to work in the luxury sector.

    I’m from the UK and could study a similar master here, but can’t decide whether to go abroad or not. Why should I study HR in France?


    Do I need to already have a masters degree to do this? I don’t understand the difference between a master 1 and a master 2.


    Do we only study European labour law? What if I want to work in Asia or in the US afterwards?


    The Clichés

  • 15:46

    For the apprenticeships, do we get to choose where we are placed? Do you help us to find placements?


    Guest change


    What kind of people tend to do the programme? What nationalities and how many people are in the programme?


    I don’t know if I’m eligible to do an apprenticeship. Would I have to do an internship instead and does that change anything?

  • 20:29

    Do you help us to find accommodation in Paris?


    Do most people normally stay in France after the master?


    Final Destination


    Do the apprenticeships normally turn into jobs?
