Orientation

Personalised mentoring is one of the priorities of Lycée Français de Kuala Lumpur.

The Parcours de découverte des métiers et des formations (PDMF – Discovery of professions and study courses plan) starts as soon as 5e up until Terminale. During this time, various activities are offered to students, parents and educational teams. The aim is to help students review their interests, motivations, capacities and ambitions by providing them adapted information and to facilitate the designing of their school and professional curriculum. In upper secondary school, the focus is on what happens after the baccalauréat and the preparation of successful studies.

To each level its discoveries
Documentation available

5eme : Professions discovery stage

The pupils discover professions and their characteristics, research them and discuss through workshops and productions.

4eme : Study courses discovery stage

Discovering the training courses aims at familiarising each pupil with the various study courses while linking them to the professions. Project-making workshops take place in each class.

3eme : Project stage

The 3e class is an academic choice threshold. The pupils and their families have to face their first choice upon entering upper secondary school. Several activities are offered all year long:

  • Introduction to the study courses available from Seconde onwards
  • Self-knowledge workshops
  • Choosing exploration classes
  • First individual interviews

Structure of higher education in France
What studies after what Bac

AEFE document: Choosing the baccalauréat stream is done at the end of Seconde but no choice is yet irreversible: the new format of the upper secondary school allows for more fluid study courses thanks to link courses. These make it possible to change stream (subject to the headmaster’s approval). The three general baccalauréat stream, i.e. the economic and social sciences (ES), literature (L) and scientific (S) streams retain some specificities but also evolve towards subject intermingling. Their curricula are therefore characterised by:

  • Common subjects to all three ES, L and S streams: French, History and Geography, Languages, Physical Education (PE), Citizenship, Legal and Social Education (ECJS). This common core covers 60% of the teaching time.
  • Specific subjects to each stream: Economic Sciences in ES, French and Foreign Literature in L, Mathematics, Physics-Chemistry and Life and Earth Sciences in S.
  • Shared subjects between ES and L: Mathematics and Sciences.

These streams preparing for general baccalauréat are offered on most French schools abroad. In some schools, it is or will also be possible to prepare the international baccalauréat (IB) or binational baccalauréat such as the Abibac (or French-German baccalauréat), the Bachibac (French-Spanish), the Esabac (French-Italian) or the French-American baccalauréat. Besides, baccalauréat candidates coming from European or Oriental language courses (SELO) may have the “European course” or “Oriental Language course” mention appearing on their diploma.

The technological and vocational study courses, equally interesting, are offered in some French schools abroad and everywhere in France (metropolis and overseas territories).

What to do after each Bac: see the ONISEP leaflets

How to register

Many registrations to higher education in France are done through the APB –Admission Post Bac– procedure; some are done directly with the school, through an application file or a competitive entrance exam.
