IEP is currently reviewing its admissions policy. The total number of IEP available slots for HCJYF students will be announced on this website soon. For example, in a given year, there may be one full-time year-long student; or two part-time annual students; or four part-time semester students. Part-time students must take no more or no fewer than three courses per semester at IEP (one cours magistral with its conférence de méthode and two seminars). HCJYF students applying for one semester only are not eligible for IEP.If a full-time student is selected for IEP, he or she will take all of his or her courses at Sciences Po for the entire year; upon successful completion of 45 units of coursework, he or she will receive a Certificat International.
The exchange arrangement between theHC JYF and IEP for a given year will depend on the linguistic preparation, prior academic performance, and curricular needs of HCJYF student applicants. HCJYF applicants who wish to be considered for the IEP exchange must state this clearly in their HCJYF application; there will be a separate IEP application for admission after acceptance to HCJYF. Decisions on IEP participation will normally be announced by the middle of May.HCJYF students not attending IEP have equivalent courses available to them at the University of Paris Diderot, the Institut Catholique de Paris, and the Faculté Libre d'Economie et de Gestion (FACO). In addition, the Consortium, comprised of Hamilton, Middlebury and Smith Colleges, offers two courses each semester in History/Politics. Some of these courses are taught by IEP faculty.
Finally, each semester Hamilton offers in its Reid Hall headquarters courses to its own students in literature, theater, art history, French language, and, through the Consortium of American Colleges (Hamilton, Middlebury, and Smith Colleges), social sciences.
