I am a senior high school student and I want to become a physiotherapist ? Nothing easier : I enroll in one of one of CEERRF’s partner universities via Parcoursup. At the end of this first university year (L1), depending on my ranking, I will be able to join the CEERRF or, failing that, one of the other training institutes agreed with my university. There are many possible courses: PASS (Specific Health Access Course), LAS (License option Health Access), STAPS (Science and Techniques of Physical and Sports Activities) or even STS (Science, Technology, Health).

Admissions CEERRF : Je suis lycéen


Parcoursup is the French national online platform for high school students wishing to continue their studies in higher education. This system allows high school students to compile their file and formulate wishes according to the orientation they are considering.

From now on, entering a physiotherapy training institute (IFMK) such as CEERRF, is accessible to almost all graduates, whatever their profile. All the candidates have to do is to choose the most suitable university course by checking the necessary prerequisites on Parcoursup.

For example :

  • If your interests are in sports-related fields, you can choose a degree Sciences et Techniques des Activités Physiques et Sportives (STAPS).
  • If you are comfortable with science, you can choose a license in Biology (Bio license), or good in Science, Technologie and Santé (STS).
  • If your strengths are in disciplines far from biology, you can choose a license with the “Accès Santé” option in the field that interests you (L.AS).
  • Finally, the PASS, provided only in health faculties, is a specific year comprising “health” lessons and non-health lessons (law, bio, maths, letters, etc.).

CEERRF’s advice : Training in physiotherapy is plural. It combines biomedical scientific knowledge (medicine, biomechanics, etc.) with human and social sciences (sociology, educational sciences, etc.). To give you the best chance of success in the L1 ranking tests, we recommend that you choose a sector in which you will be as comfortable as possible.
