The Covid-19 pandemic forces us to reorganize the training session from June to October, we will have very few places for new students, the students of the previous session - who have not unable to complete their training - being a priority. The online registrations of May 12, 2020 are therefore canceled, we are deeply sorry. The next online registrations will be for the training session from November 16, 2020 to March 4, 2021. Registration for the November session will be open from October 6, 2020 at 11 a.m. to October 8, 2020 at 11 a.m. There is no document to provide to register. During the previous registrations, we received more than 800 applications for around sixty places (in total we welcome 105 students), so we ask associations / accommodation centers and migrant supports, not to register more than 4 people.

French courses take place in Saint-Denis, next to the station Gare de Saint Denis RER D, it is not possible to come register on site because we do not have a front desk to welcome visitors. This space is reserved for our students and their training.

It is important for the candidate to be aware of the commitment required to study at Thot School, the training is intensive, all courses are mandatory and absentee follow-up is conducted throughout the session. To reinforce this commitment, the form must be completed by the candidate himself, this one being translated into Pashto, Farsi, Arabic and English. This rule does not apply to people who can not read or write or whose language is not translated.
