Every year, the Ecole normale supérieure of Paris (ENS-PSL) selects foreign students under its International Selection program. At the time of application, those students should be engaged in the final year of their licence/bachelor in Economics outside of France. Admitted students receive a monthly scholarship of about 1,000 euros for three years, have a personal tutor, and benefit from all of the ENS resources, including access to the ENS PhD scholarship program.
The Economics Department of ENS is closely linked with the Paris School of Economics (and is located in the same building). The Department seeks to recruit economists under the International Selection program. During their first year at ENS, they will have the opportunity to strengthen their knowledge in economics, follow courses in other departments, and complete « opening experiences » (internships, research experience, etc.), as part of the ENS diploma. During their second and third years, they study in the PSE master programs (APE or PPD), and take complementary courses at ENS. Note that most courses at the ENS (including first year economics courses) are taught in French, so that an ability to follow courses in French is recommended to enroll in the program.
