International admissions

International recruitment for the engineering cycle

International students are admitted to the ENSAE Paris engineering program either through the IP Paris international competitive examination or through the admission procedure based on qualifications (AST).

The IP Paris international competitive entrance exam is open to international students who have completed at least two years of higher education at the time of application: more information via this link.

The admission on title (AST) is open to holders of a Bachelor's degree, or a first year Master's degree in economics or econometrics, in mathematics or mathematics applied to social sciences, in science and technology... Depending on the level and the scientific coverage of this degree, you may be offered admission in 1A or 2A direct. Only candidates who can demonstrate a very good level in mathematics or applied mathematics have a real chance of admission to ENSAE Paris.

While some 2A courses are taught in English, most 1A and 2A courses are taught in French, so a minimum level of French (B2) is required for admission. A large number of 3A courses are taught in English. 

In addition to the multidisciplinary training of excellence that constitutes the engineering cycle, ENSAE Paris offers more academic and disciplinary training, oriented towards research and the preparation of a PhD. These Masters and PhD tracks are offered jointly with partner schools within the Institut Polytechnique de Paris (IP Paris).

Advanced Masters 

International students are admitted to one of ENSAE Paris' Specialized Master's programs via the traditional application procedure. The Specialized Master's program can be taken directly after initial training or after a period spent in a company.

Prerequisites: students must have an M2 degree or a diploma from a Grande Ecole and have a sufficient level of knowledge to be able to tackle the disciplines taught in the 3rd year at ENSAE Paris (economics, mathematics, statistics, finance, etc.). Although a certain number of courses are taught in English, many are taught in French and it is therefore necessary to understand and speak French to be admitted.
