The Diplôme National Supérieur d’Expression Plastique is a high-level art education diploma, recognised as equivalent to a Master's degree and which validates 5 years of study.

The DNSEP examination is composed of two tests:

  • presentation and defence of the dissertation;
  • presentation and defence of art work.

These tests both take place before an examining committee designated by the Director of the ESADTPM, constituted of distinguished members of the professional art field  from outside the school and representatives of the school's academic staff.
