Admission requirements

This course is open to students from the European Union or third countries (outside the European Union).

Master’s degree from a university or high school.

There is no requirement for an applicant to have completed any specific ‘field of study’ in order to take this course, which includes ‘European public affairs’ and ‘communication techniques’. You can enrol on the Executive Master in European Public Affairs and Communication via a master’s degree, for example, in law or political science, or via a master’s in journalism, public relations, communication science, humanities and social sciences, and so on.

If an applicant does not have a diploma in a second-cycle university degree (master’s or similar), a bachelor’s university degree or higher may also be accepted, provided the applicant can prove they have gained professional experience that is appropriate for this course.

By professional experience, we mean the jobs and professions directly linked to Europe or communication. The governing body of IHECS will make its decision on a case-by-case basis, based on a detailed file, together with the required certificates. In general, the experience mentioned there must provide guarantees of competency and skills equivalent to those required by second-cycle (master’s degree level) studies. It is the responsibility of the applicant to prove that the experience mentioned is genuine. The applicant can do this by all legal means (employer certificate, contract, evaluation report, recommendation, certificate of registration in the commercial register, certificate from a public authority, tax-related document, etc.).

Level of English

The entire Executive Master course is delivered in English.

On their application form, applicants are invited to demonstrate they are sufficiently proficient in the English language. Knowledge of other languages than English is an additional advantage.

A ‘good command’ means a sufficient level of understanding in reading and listening, as well as a sufficient skill level in writing and speaking. To test your level of English, you can do a free test here.

The level of English must be at least B1 (intermediate).  In order to integrate more easily French speakers, the final Thesis can be written in English and in French.

The right motivation

In the application, the applicant must set out why they want to do this course, especially in terms of European issues. They must also say what they hope to get out of this course, both personally and professionally.
