    Conferences


    The admission into the 1-year programme will be open for the 2021-2022 academic year. First application deadline should be in January or April 2021 (for the academic year starting in September 2021).



    2-year (Erasmus Mundus) and 1-year programmes

    Applicants have two opportunities to join the EPOG+ programme. They can join:

    The 2-year EPOG+ Erasmus Mundus programmeIt includes both years and is labelled "Erasmus Mundus" by the European Commission.
    Students successfully completing the programme receive a joint or multiple Master's degree from both (one or two) non-French universities and from the French full partners of the EPOG+ programme (University of Technology of Compiègne, Sorbonne University and University of Paris).
    The 1-year EPOG+ programmeIt includes only the second year of the programme. That programme is not part of the "Erasmus Mundus" label.
    Students successfully completing the programme receive the Master's degrees from the French full partners of the EPOG+ programme (University of Technology of Compiègne, Sorbonne University and University of Paris).

    It must be noted that the programme basically enrolls the students in the 2-year programme. Consequently, only a very limited number of places will remain for the 1-year programme.

    The 1-year programme: an opportunity to be part of an international programme

    The EPOG+ programme offers the opportunity to join the 2nd year of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (semester 3 and semester 4).
    The students selected in the 1-year programme will take the same courses than the Erasmus Mundus students (even though the students in the 1-year programme are not officially considered as "Erasmus Mundus" students). In particular, students will benefit from the excellence of the programme (it is one of the only five Master's programme in economics labelled Erasmus Mundus at EU level), the same educational support and supervision. They will have the opportunity to take part of a cohort made of highly selected students from all continents. They will also have the opportunity to spend their last semester at one of our partners or associated partners.

    The structure and content of the second year of the Master’s degree in Paris are available in the “structure, content and mobility” page.

    Practical information

    1 year (September-August).

    The main instruction languages will be English and French. However, students who want to study only in English will have this possibility.

    At the end of the year, they will be awarded a Master’s degree from the French full partners of the EPOG+ programme (University of Technology of Compiègne, Sorbonne University and University of Paris). The students will also get a diploma supplement emphasizing the originality of the programme and detailing the track followed by each student.

    In France, the tuition costs are highly subsidised. Even if the real cost is about 40000 euros/year, the student will only have to pay tuition fees and contribution to students and campus life (about 350 euros / year). This applies whatever the nationality for the EPOG+ 1-year programme. It includes the social security (French healthcare system).
    No specific scholarship is available for the 1-year programme. However, European students can consider the usual Erasmus+ scholarships and we also recommend students to apply to any national or regional scholarships schemes, foundations… A non exhaustive list is provided by Campus France.
