International shorts programs

Lasting from 1 to 2 weeks, our international shorts programs are intensive development sessions on a specific theme. These programs encourage the sharing of national experiences. They take the form of conferences, seminars, round tables but also case studies, simulations and study visits in the field. The field covered by the training is resolutely turned towards Europe and the international one by a comparative approach.The lessons are teached in French or English language. Our programs are aimed in particular at senior officials of foreign administrations, public company executives or representatives of non-governmental organizations who wish to improve their skills in a specific field.

Applicant profil 

The courses are organized for senior public servants in government departments, senior managers in public sector companies or similar, with evidence of at least three years’ professional experience and who:

  • are introduced by their government
  • hold a Masters or equivalent degree after at least four years’ higher education, or in certain cases who hold a position of responsibility demonstrating an equal level of competence

For courses delivered in French, a good working knowledge of French is essential

 Submitting applications

Once the application done, the candidate must print the document, and send it to the Department of Cooperation and Cultural Action of the French Embassy in his/her country of residence. The Embassy will forward it to ENA and do the follow up.

Only applicants who are provisionally admitted and subsequently obtain funding to cover the costs of travel, accommodation, insurance and tuition will have their admission confirmed. Applications for a grant from the French government may be made to the French Embassy. Applicants may also apply for a grant from a private or public national or international institution or from the government that has presented them. This grant must be managed in France by an authorized body.

Attending the Short specialized international cycles

Once applicants have received confirmation of admission, they must make all the necessary arrangements to ensure they attend ENA on the first day of the course in question, after having taken care of all the necessary arrangements for their stay in Paris beforehand.

Applicants should therefore plan to arrive at least 24 hours before the start of the course. Any applicant attending after that date may be refused admission to the session and forfeit the grant obtained for the course. The short course attendance certificate will only be issued subject to the participant’s full, attentive participation.

Tuition fees for applicants not in receipt of a French government grant are as follows :

  • 1400€ for 1-week courses
  • 2300€ for 2-week courses
  • 3200€ for 2-weeks courses with SPOC (Small Private Online Course)
  • 3700€ for 4-week courses

Excluding compulsory insurance fees
