Three partner universities

To date, HEIP collaborates with two institutions to offer double-degree programs at Cycle MSc level as well as a program for continuing studies after obtaining an M2.

London Metropolitan University

Students in the Diplomacy and Soft Power and Strategic Studies, Security and Defense Policy programs have the opportunity to study at London Metropolitan University as part of obtaining a double degree.

This double degree is open to students in the classic cycle, that is to say those who choose not to do the work-study program or who have not found a host institution/company. They will follow the normal alternating rhythm during the first part of the academic year according to the planned timetable (from September to January) and will leave to study the second part of the year at Londonmet (February until the end of the academic year at Londonmet).

Critères d’éligibilité

The application for the double degree is based on an application evaluated by HEIP. The candidate’s profile must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Hold a first cycle higher education diploma : license, bachelor or similar (DUT, BTS or preparatory training types are excluded);
  • – Be enrolled in one of the two programs of the following MSc HEIP cycle : Diplomacy and Soft Power or Strategic Studies, Security and Defense Policies;
  • – Have a minimum general average of 15/20 in the first year of the MSc cycle (HEIP or other institution). Students must have validated their M1 thesis and their defense before submitting the application;
  • – Have an English level certified by IELTS Academic : 6.0 in overall score with a minimum of 5.5 in each subsection (listening, writing, speaking, reading)

Éléments financiers

In addition to the tuition fees for the M2 at HEIP, the student admitted to London Metropolitan University will have to pay a financial supplement based on the tuition fees applied by the host university. The amount of the financial supplement may vary from year to year depending on the financial policy of the partner university.

Obtention du double-diplôme

In addition to the tuition fees for the M2 at HEIP, the student admitted to London Metropolitan University will have to pay a financial supplement based on the tuition fees applied by the host university. The amount of the financial supplement is likely to vary from year to year depending on the financial policy of the partner university. Students will follow a program consisting of compulsory courses (including the writing of a thesis “dissertation”) and optional courses . Validation of the courses AND the dissertation is mandatory to obtain the Master of Arts (MA) of International Relations from Londonmet , and therefore to obtain the double degree HEIP / London Metropolitan University.

University of Kent

HEIP and University of Kent offer the possibility for students of the Diplomacy and International Relations program to complete their second year at the University of Kent as part of obtaining a double degree : MA International Relations.

Students admitted for this double degree will complete their full year of M2 in the United Kingdom and therefore cannot be eligible for the work-study program.

Critères d’éligibilité

The application for the double degree is based on an application evaluated by HEIP. The candidate’s profile must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • – Hold a first cycle higher education diploma: license, bachelor or similar (DUT, BTS or preparatory training types are excluded);
  • – Be enrolled in Diplomacy and International Relations or Diplomacy and International Relations

  • – Have an English level certified by IELTS Academic: 6.0 in overall score with a minimum of 5.5 in each subsection (listening, writing, speaking, reading)

Éléments financiers

In addition to the tuition fees for the M2 at HEIP, the student admitted to the University of Kent will have to pay a financial supplement based on the tuition fees charged by the host university. The amount of the financial supplement may vary from year to year depending on the financial policy of the partner university.

Obtention du double-diplôme

The HEIP student can only apply for the “International Relations – Taught MA – full-time (90 ECTS/180 credits)” program (Canterbury) and follows the full University of Kent program. He is enrolled at both institutions as a full-time student. Enrollment in the MA International Relations program at the University of Kent does not allow you to do work-study during the second year of the MSc cycle, nor to do an end-of-study internship.

Students will follow a program consisting of compulsory courses and optional courses .

National School of Public Administration

HEIP and the National School of Public Administration (ENAP) have signed a cooperation agreement allowing students graduating from the MSc Public Affairs and Institutions Management cycle to obtain the Specialized Higher Education Diploma (DESS) in public administration.

Conditions d’éligibilité

  • – Anyone with a degree in Management of Public Affairs and Institutions from HEIP or a graduate of this program during the eight years preceding their application for admission to ENAP
  • – General average of M2 must be equal to or greater than 12/20

Applications for admission are assessed by ENAP in accordance with the provisions of the ENAP Study Regulations and the admission conditions for the ENAP Specialized Higher Studies Diploma (1686), general program, professional profile. The specifics to which this program is subject under this agreement are set out in Appendix I.

Structure du programme et cheminement

The structure of the DESS program is approved by HEIP and ENAP, therefore candidates and future students enrolled in the DESS must be enrolled in the courses indicated below. Note that the structure is likely to change without prior notification from ENAP (host structure). The order in which these courses will be offered by ENAP may vary.

Les modalités financières

Tuition fees and related costs are the responsibility of those admitted according to the ENAP fee schedule applicable to each term and according to the situation of the persons concerned. Fee schedule available here: ENAP – National School of Public Administration> Tuition and other fees

Note that French students within the meaning of the Agreement between the Government of Quebec and the Government of the French Republic regarding student mobility at the university level admitted to a regular graduate program at a Quebec institution pay the same tuition and related fees as Canadian students residing in Quebec. The situation is the same for French-speaking Belgian students within the meaning of the Agreement between the Government of Quebec and the Government of the French Community of Belgium regarding student mobility at the university level. In addition, students of French or Belgian French-speaking nationality benefit from a scholarship of 3000 CAD. This scholarship therefore makes it possible to finance all tuition fees.

People who are not covered by a student mobility agreement at the university level to which the Government of Quebec is a party are, however, subject to the ENAP fee schedule for international students. International students unfortunately do not qualify for the CAD 3000 scholarship.

Those admitted to the program must also assume all costs related to their stay and their preparation, including costs related to the following elements: international and urban transport, subsistence, including accommodation and food, teaching materials, insurance, health care, visa , allowed…

La délivrance du diplôme

The issuance of the diploma is exclusively the responsibility of ENAP because it is issued by the Assembly of Governors of the University of Quebec. Given that those admitted will be exclusively enrolled in ENAP and not in HEIP during the year of study, only ENAP will issue a document.
