The EPHE’s international policy is based on its specificities:
- training (Master’s) and research (PhD and Post-Doctoral level) benefit from a high mentoring ratio;
- research fields are highly specialized;
- interdisciplinarity is promoted.
Along with Europe, the Mediterranean Basin and the Asia-Pacific region are priority areas for cooperation. At the same time, collaborations are continuing to develop in the Middle East and in Central Asia, as are relations with the American continent.
A member of the PSL Research University Paris, the EPHE structures its international approach under the umbrella of this consortium which pursues a coordinated policy.
International mobility for students and faculty members as well as organizing the arrangements for receiving foreign doctoral students and guest professors are a key priority for the School. They lead to the establishment of numerous international partnership agreements.
The EPHE has developed a network of privileged partners with multiple institutions around the world. The purpose of these diversified agreements is to facilitate student and research mobility and to encourage joint projects. The list hereinafter classifies the approximately hundred already-concluded agreements by geographical regions of the world, then by country, and finally by city.
The Erasmus+ program for higher education is proactive in the development of a European zone for higher education by pursuing several goals, including:
- improving quality and strengthening the European dimension of higher education;
- increasing student, faculty and university staff mobility;
- reinforcing multilateral cooperation;
- ensuring transparency and acknowledging the qualifications obtained;
- internationalizing European higher education institutions.
The program promotes mobility schemes in Europe and around the world for students (study or placement periods), teaching staff, as well as all staff from higher education institutions.
It also facilitates cooperation through strategic partnerships, knowledge alliances, capacity-building projects and joint Master’s degrees.
To become involved in the various program actions, the higher education institutions must hold the Erasmus + Higher Education Charter (ECHE).
