Frequently asked questions

I’ve been a language professional for X years. What if I haven’t graduated from college, or have no degree?

Don’t worry, you can come aboard anyway. You first need to apply for a VAPP (Accreditation of Acquired Professional and Personal Experience or Validation des Acquis Professionnels et Personnels in French), which is an assessment of your skills and experience. Make sure to indicate it in your application. We will then send you the VAPP application form and guide you through the validation process.

How can I apply to the VAPP?

When completing the TCLoc application form, please indicate that you would like to apply for VAPP. We will then send you the VAPP application form and guide you through the validation process.
On the VAPP application form, you will need to demonstrate that you have acquired particular expertise in TCLoc-related domains as a result of professional experience and/or personal background. Please describe specific areas of knowledge and skills that you believe qualify you to register for the TCLoc Master’s.
Once you have completed the VAPP application form, please attach all supporting documents related to your professional experience and/or personal background.
Your application form will be examined in a timely manner by an academic jury.

Interviews usually take place within ten days of your application.
