The "Open House" is a major event at ENSA Normandie. Each year, future students are made aware of the architectural professions through presentations, exhibitions and meetings with the student and teaching teams, the administrative staff and external partners. You can also take a virtual tour of our school.

This year's open house took place on January 27, 2024.

Frequently asked questions

Architecture is a multidisciplinary field that integrates engineering sciences, plastic arts, spatial design, history, sociology, geography and theories. ENSA Normandie has a recruitment strategy that aims to create classes of students with excellent and varied academic backgrounds, allowing strong interaction between students during their training. Eligibility is calculated without any subject coefficients, allowing all courses to have the same chances of integration.

The ENSA Normandie council, for the choice of specialities, is as follows:

  1. choose subjects in which the student is comfortable and will have good grades
  2. choose subjects that express a particular curiosity, an interest in a science, a culture or that question society, its functioning, its history and that broaden the general culture.

Architectural education requires rigour and creativity. All the subjects that contribute to it are relevant and help to train the future architect.

The purpose of the interview is to assess:

  • the student's ability to integrate the architectural training program, with regard to his or her motivations and background

  • deepen their understanding of the field of architecture, the courses offered and the professional opportunities

  • oral expression and the ability to present a constructed argument

  • personal artistic or sporting practices 


The duration of the interview is 10 minutes.

This method of recruitment does not require students to have any prerequisites in the field of architectural studies.
