Additional students can be enrolled directly in the second year (“1-YEAR-PROGRAMME students”).
The responsibility for these students belongs to the Universities of Sorbonne Paris Nord and Université de Paris. It does not involve the responsibility of the other partners. 1-Year programme students will pay the regular French national Master’s tuition fees. The successful students will only be awarded a Sorbonne Paris Nord APE degree if they are in Option I or a APE Université de Paris degree if they are in Option II. With the exception of the awarded degrees policy, these students and the 2-year programme students will be treated similarly.
The application process starts usually around March. A deadline is set for mid of May. Once again, the application packages, similar to those of the 2-year programme, are examined by members of the teaching staff, this time from Sorbonne Paris Nord and Université de Paris only. A number of candidates are then interviewed through Skype by at least two professors from Paris universities, and a selection is made with criteria that are very much identical to those of the 2-year programme (see the criteria here). The requirements are the same but with a Master or equivalent 4-year degree (240 ECTS minimum).
The call for this 1-year programme is now open.
