Openness to the world, intercultural dialogue, and international cooperation are part of ensapc’s charter
OUTGOING MOBILITY OF ENSAPC STUDENTS AND FACULTY
Spending time outside one’s home country expands one’s horizons and encourages artistic growth. Time abroad helps you gain new knowledge and skills, to make new contacts, and to develop new frames of reference.
At ENSAPC, all students spent at least one semester abroad, either as a student or as an intern. The school also encourages and promotes international activities among its faculty as a natural response to the challenge of contemporary creativity.
As a signatory of the expanded Erasmus charter (and the Erasmus strategy), ENSAPC offers Erasmus mobility grants. Other grants for outgoing mobility are funded by the Île-de-France Region and from the school’s own funds. ENSAPC has also obtained an Erasmus + funding from the European Commission for credit mobility with Bezalel Academy of Art and Design (Israel) and Tbilisi State Academy of Arts (Georgia).
WELCOMING INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS AND FACULTY TO ENSAPC
Welcoming students and faculty from around the world is a longstanding part of ENSAPC’s institutional policy, because it helps create a context favorable to interaction and inquiry.
Nearly a quarter of ENSAPC’s students (from some 20 different countries) come to the school independently or under exchange programs. Under several joint programs and partnerships, ENSAPC also welcomes international faculty, both academics and practicing artists. Guest faculty from abroad enrich and renew the school’s educational offerings.
PROJECTS FOR RESEARCH AND CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT
Each year the school organizes and supports numerous individual and joint projects in France and abroad that involve members of the ENSAPC faculty in research and curriculum development, often in cooperation with other institutions. Students wishing to engage in similar projects may apply for financial support from the school.
ENSAPC is a member of ELIA, the European League of Institutes of the Arts.
