Recognition and appreciation of commitment

Inalco offers all students, whatever their level of training, the opportunity to showcase their commitment, whatever it may be (associative, elective, voluntary, civic, etc.).
The student commitment recognition scheme enables students to obtain either a 3-credit EC or bonus points on their overall grade point average. In all cases, the skills acquired as part of the commitment are recorded in the descriptive appendix to the diploma.
In addition, the Special Study Regime (RSE) is open to committed students, enabling them to better reconcile their studies with their commitment.

What is "commitment"?

Getting involved means helping to build the society we want to live in, in a spirit of openness, solidarity and responsibility. This commitment enables students to develop the skills, knowledge and aptitudes they have acquired in parallel with their university education, and prepares them for their professional integration (valorization on a CV, for example).

Who's concerned?

Students enrolled in a Bachelor's degree (L1, L2, L3), a Master's degree 1 or an institutional diploma (excluding distance-learning institutional diplomas and intensive diplomas) are eligible for this commitment-enhancing scheme.


What activities are eligible?

  • volunteering with an association governed by the law of July 1, 1901, in particular student associations that have signed the Inalco associations charter and associations recognized as being of public utility;

  • activities related to an elective mandate within the various bodies of the establishment (Board of Directors, Scientific Council, Training and Student Life Council, CVEC Commission, Master's Training Commission, Department and Branch Councils, Student Life Office), within the boards of directors of the CROUS, CNOUS, CNESER, in national, state or local authorities ;

  • volunteer involvement in Inalco programs such as : support and assistance for students with disabilities, student health relay missions, educational tutoring, leading activities deployed as part of the cordées de la réussite program, the environment agreement, etc.

  • volunteering in civic service missions;

  • military commitment in the operational reserve;

  • volunteering commitment in the armed forces;

  • enlistment in the national police force's operational reserve;

  • enlistment as a volunteer firefighter;

  • volunteering in humanitarian or first-aid work (Protection civile, Croix rouge, etc.);

Commitment must be voluntary, benevolent and secular. It must serve a general interest and convey values of solidarity, mutual aid and citizenship. It must represent a minimum of 30 hours of activity during the academic year in which the valorization is requested.

How is your commitment valued?

Depending on the course in which you are enrolled, the recognition of your commitment can take the following forms:

  • For students enrolled in a Licence or Diplôme d'établissement in a level that includes a UE libre, the pedagogical recognition of student commitment is part of this UE Libre in the form of a "Student Commitment" EC allocated 3 ects. The EC is validated, without a grade, in the second semester of the academic year.

  • For students enrolled in a Licence or diplôme d'établissement in a level that does not include a UE libre, as well as for students enrolled in Master 1, student commitment is valued by obtaining a bonus granted by the Commission de validation de l'engagement étudiant (CV2E) that the admissions jury for each course can integrate into the student's overall annual average, for a maximum of 0.5 points /20. The bonus is awarded on the basis of the mark awarded by the CV2E to the student's activity report and defense, according to the scale indicated in the framework text.

In addition to the system for validating the skills you have acquired through your commitment, the Special Study Regime (RSE) may enable you to better reconcile your studies and your commitment.

What are the assessment procedures?

The assessment focuses on the skills you have acquired, particularly cross-disciplinary skills, in connection with your university course and the personal and/or professional benefits you have derived from them, as well as the way you report on your experience and your capacity for reflective analysis of your commitment.
The assessment is based partly on an activity report (Cf. full dossier) and partly on an oral presentation before the Student Commitment Validation Commission (CV2E). The average of the two marks thus obtained determines the validation of the "Student Involvement" CE or the awarding of a bonus (depending on the course in which you are enrolled).
The activity report of around 15,000 signs will present the nature of the involvement and describe the host structure, the quantity and quality of the involvement, the actions carried out and the difficulties encountered, the personal skills, knowledge and aptitudes developed, and the benefits to the institution and/or the community. This report will be graded out of 20.
The hearing before the CV2E will consist of a presentation followed by an interview. During the presentation (10 minutes), you will present the skills you have developed. This audition will be graded out of 20.
Your ability to clearly present the issues at stake in your action, to propose a reflection on this commitment and on the skills you have acquired is the main evaluation criterion (cf. evaluation scale in the framework text).
